New here & need help recommissioning 250D.


Hope your all keeping well

I've got a 1987 Mercedes 250D off a friend who has emigrated, this is my first Mercedes although not my first classic ('70 Bug & '71 early bay window). The 250 has not been on the road for 9 years but has a very tidy interior and no dreaded rust.

My dad is a mechanic and I'm handy at the tools so I know I need to turn the engine by hand before starting it up then changing the oil. I presume I'm looking at new brakes all round, new tires, brake fluid and transmission fluid.

What else do I need to get this benz into tip top order?

Thank you,

I believe the correct forum for questions on your car is;
