Hi there, I'm new to Benzworld and I'm new to owning a MB so I guess that makes me an all-round noob! Go easy on me please
I do have a couple of specific Q's about my vehicle and have already searched the forum, as well as scouring the internet, but so far I haven't found the correct place on here to post the questions.
The vehicle I have is a 1992 MB 709d (T2 neu). It's a truck, it's old, but it's not exactly vintage! There doesn't appear to be a category for it on here, unless I've missed it. More about the vehicle: it has the OM364 NA engine with an automatic gearbox. It used to be a local bus here in the UK and has since been converted into a horsebox. I'm now in the process of turning it into some kind of camper van.
The questions I have relate to a) wiring up the alternator after a friend put the batteries in the wrong way around and melted all the wires (genuinely a friend, not me, promise), b) the types/grades of fluids my truck needs, and c) freeing up the brakes, i.e. what is involved and how to do it.
Let me know if I'm best off splitting these questions into separate threads (and where those threads should live) or chucking it all together in one happy home, wherever that may be.
