How to start up 220D after long term storage
Hello, new to the forum. I rently purchased a 1972 220D that has been parked since 2001. It wasn't prepped for storage, just parked in a carport here in California and forgotten about. So far, I have drained and refilled the radiator, changed the oil and filter, confirmed that the glow plugs work, and bumped the starter to see if the engine would turn over. All is good so far. I manually primed the injector pump, and it is working.
My question is, now, what to do next. Do I crack open the injectors to purge them, or what? Any help is greatly appreciated.
