Bentley manual for 300d turbo?

Bentley's website wasn't clear so I called and talked to someone. She said that the w123 manual, #670, does not cover 300d turbo cars. Anybody know what does? If not, what other shop manuals do you use?

The only trouble is the factory manuals come in CD form. Book versions are hard to come by.

1982 240D - selling once a replacement is found
1985 380SE - laid up
Looking for a 300SD or 300TD

Hehehe, I went to my local computer lab on campus and printed out pretty much the entire factory service manual for free.

I got a dirty look when I had the machine three hole punch it too. Whatever to them I paid for that paper !

There's something eerily similar about cars and computers.

My campus would be more than willing to foster knowledge through providing me with a free copy of a factory manual... I would think

1981 300TD "The Badger"
1985 300D

If you get confused, listen to the music play.

If you are in the US the one you want is the 123 Service Manual Library CD Set direct from Mercedes. It is a great buy at $19.99+ $7 shipping. It covers all parts of the car with the exception of rebuilding transmissions and rebuilding the turbocharger. It it not perfect but for $27 the sheer bulk of information is well worth it. It will easily pay for itself if it helps you do a few repairs.
If you are not in the US you may be able to use the part number of the CD and get it local.
