What is the best repair/shop manual for 1976 W115 300d?

Hello,

I picked up a 76 W115 300d this weekend (my first diesel Benz) and I'm looking for a service/ repair manual for the car. The only manuals I've been able to find have been 76-85 W123 manuals and bootleg CD's of manuals that seem more specific to my car from other countries. I'm sure this has been asked a lot but I haven't been able to find a definitive on this or any other forum.

What do you guys recommend? I think the W123 76-85 manual will be fine for the engine/ transmission, but electrical/ vacuum diagrams probably won't reflect my car?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Thanks for those resources! I've checked Ebay since that's where I usually get manuals, but everything for the 76 300D is 76-85 W123. I can't seem to find any manual for the 76 W115 300D. I'm sure that the 76-85 will be fine for the engine/ transmission, but the guy who had the car before me cut the vacuum hoses and plugged them up and there are a couple of electrical issues, so I'm looking for diagrams.
