Seattle/Tacoma area 300D owner

Glad to be here and find the support of so many like-minded, committed owners.
The resources available are overwhelming here, and opinions are over-abundant. I hope I can get a feel for the Mercedes Benz lifestyle.
My car is an 81 Diesel with 244000 miles. It has had its transmission condemned by a very reputable shop who contacts out all their transmission work.
I am determined to put it right and figure out vacuum controlled machinery.
In the last month I've had this car I've learned a lot from you and have replaced am HVAC pod in the dash, having to pull the dash off and install it again. I rebuilt the vacuum pump twice after learning that it came with improperly-sized diaphragms.
I fixed a gummed up fuel lift pump and had a sludged up fuel line and tank cleaned out.
All with your help, Benz World.
