1964 190Dc manual: Have a few questions for those more experienced than me.

Hello, I recently drug home a 1964 mercedes diesel 190, and a 1964 gas parts car, and had a few questions for those in the know. I do have the factory service manual and owners manual. I have rescued a lot of old iron out of fields and such, and have no doubt I can muddle my way through these repairs, but always like to learn the easier way to do things from those more knowledgeable if at all possible.

1st problem is poor breaking, symptoms are: break peddle can be pumped up then goes to the floor in about 30 seconds. Also leaking brake fluid at the junction of the brake MC and vacuum booster. My diagnosis, shot brake MC, the one on my parts car may be good, but why cheap out on brake stuff? new one on the way.

2nd problem is no heat. Haven't run the engine enough to know if there is no coolant reaching the heater core, need to fix brakes first, but the fan definitely does not work, I'm thinking I should just pull the whole heater box out of there and check my heater valves and fan all at one go. tips? anyone have pics of pulling the heater box off? I have heard mention of people rebuilding the heater valves, lubing them and putting new o-rings in. Where do you guys get your o-rings?

3rd problem is no wipers. I live in the pacific north west and wipers are a must. I have heard that the linkage can get rusted/gunked up. Is it easier to take the wiper linkage apart while the heater is already out? Any tips other than take linkage apart, clean all rust/gunk off, lube and reasemble? Verify wiper motor works and clean all electrical connections?

4th problem is sloppy column shift linkage. It's drivable, but would like to tighten up the shifter so I enjoy it more. Where do I get the bushings to fix this? Any tricks on this one?

Thanks again everyone,

You can get a free subscription to the EPC (electronic parts catalogue) of MB:
http://epc.startekinfo.com

You can look up part numbers, so that you can search for them more easily (problem #2 and #4). MB dealers/MB Classic Centre sell parts too.
