compassltd, I had a '77 240D many years ago. I too was loosing power when attempting to accelerate. Although I did have over 300,000 miles on the car at the time. I regularly changed the fuel filters, pre-filter as well as the main fuel filter every 3000 miles. I hade the fuel lines replaced when ever they become wet. When I noticed the lose of power and considering the mileage on the car, I assumed it was the were on the engine due to the mileage. Have you checked the compression and the injectors. You may need new injectors. Hope you find the problem.
