Hello all, I'm new to the board and to Mercedes in general.
I am a Volvo enthusiast, but have always liked the styling of the mid 70's Benz.
And it just so happens that I am also a diesel enthusiast.
Anyway, I am completely in LOVE with this car.
But, some things on it are very quirky.
For one, it seems to have a throttle plate.
I've never seen that on a diesel, ever
Next, I don't think I've ever seen an allen key bolt as big as the one I have in the oil pan.
Is there any one out there who has converted it to a normal E-hex bolt?
And if not, what size is that bolt in the oil pan?
Other than giving it an oil change and tightening up a few loose hoses, this car is solid!
I am looking forward to seeing some feedback.
