Ask for Claude. He will give it to you straight.

Here's a breakdown of work he performed for me last year when I opened the hood on my 107 and saw this...

Timing Chain Problem

R&R Air Cleaner, Plug Wires, Valve Covers, Power Steering Pump
Sprocket, Cruise Control Unit and Alternator bracket to access
and replace Timing Chain, Tensioners, One Guide in each
Cylinder Head, Oiler Tube kits, Valve Cover Gaskets and owner
supplied left Valve Cover.
Set valve and ignition timing.
Change Oil Filter
Total Labor: .........$539.00

1 Timing Chain.......$105.00
1 Chain Tensioner...$250.00
2 Guide Rails............$12.50
2 Oiler Tube Kits.......$22.00
8 Crush Washers........$4.00
1 Oil Filter................$11.50
Total Parts.............$405.00

9 Quarts 15W40 Oil...$42.75
Trans Fluid...............$1.19
MD State Tax..........$26.94

The guys at the 107 forum thought it was reasonable. I did too.

want to bump up the earlier recommendation for the Autohaus in Millersville. Claude maintained our cars for about 10 years in Maryland ('85 300D, SD, '84 300TD), until leaving the area about five years ago. I last talked to him about a year ago, and can't say for sure he is still at it, but absolutely recommend him if he is still there. I think we probably averaged about $1k per year for each car, getting regular service on each about every three to four months.

You have to be able to leave your car with him for a day or so, and we always cycled the three through. Really miss having the service available -- NY is probably a little out of range, but MD/DC/VA is likely in the "service area" if you can arrange to drop off the cars like we did. I guess driving 20 to 30 year old vehicles with complete confidence says something for the manufacturer (and for diesels), but have to believe most of the credit would go to the quality of maintenance and repair service received.
