1981 Mercedes 300D Diesel. Can you help?


I just purchased a 1981 Mercedes 300D Diesel. It has 135k miles. It had a small leak and a hose needed replacing. The hose was connected to the diesel tank and the leak was behind a gasket in the rear. The car shifted a little rough from 1st to 2nd but the owner said this was common in older models. I'm clueless when it comes to diesel cars let alone Mercedes. Also, the AC wasn't working. I now see this could be related to the vacuum and that's potentially a big issue. Any thoughts? Did i make a poor decision? It's currently at the mechanic.
