New guy on the forum

Recently purchased a 1995 E300 diesel, W124.131, Engine #606.910. Have worked on cars all my life out of pleasure, need and cheapness. Was raised by a frugal German aircraft mechanic farming ranching father that fixed every vehicle we ever owned. Worse job in the world, as a kid, was holding the flash light for my Dad while he worked on the truck, it was never @#$@@%%& in the right place. I Currently live in south/central Texas.
This is my first Mercedes. It sat, not sure how long with previous owner. I have rebuilt the front end (radial arm bushings, ball joints, tie rods, shocks) to get it road worthy. The only other repair & tune up has been: new oil sending unit; oil, fuel and air filter changes. Seems to run pretty well but as with any car this age lots of minor problems. Have been fixing them as I can get to them. Have found some good info on this forum, glad you all are willing to share. I look forward to info exchange & help from members, especially the other 1995 e300 owners I have seen on the forum.
