can anybody explain how to turn the fuel up on my 82 240d? My tractor has set screws to adjust fuel and rpms. does the 240d work the same way?

...my understanding from doing my clutch replacement is that the engine and flywheel are balanced by mercedes when installed. there are also marks on the flywheel and the crankshaft to insure correct balanced mounting when reinstalling.

the holes are drilled to take off weight in order to achieve the balance. i learned a lot in the past coupe of weeks, scares me cause now im sure of how much i dont know.

im impressed by the volume of knowledge here.

eta: my 240d is a standard trans 4 on the floor. im told there werent a lot of those sold in north america compared to the auto trans.
