Just some notes: fuel tank has a filter inside (center of tank), you can see it with tank drained. It'll usually protect the system, but you should look at it, and if looks "dented" or covered in brownish coating, replace to save major problems. If you can see a hole in it, DON'T run the car until fixed. Also, wheel cyl bleed screws on this car bind under these conditions, and you can easily break. Don't put too much pressure - better to spend the time to disassemble and free with solvent inside and light tapping outside. They are not cheap to buy these days. Master cyl is a simple old lump and cleaning and slight wipe-out with 2000 grit carborundum paper, new rubber, will fix anything. I'm sure the clutch will free up but if not, new clutch (name brand US, but not Mercedes orig part, please) is proabably cheapest major repair you can have done - no more than a Chevy pick-up of the same vintage. Good luck!
