Looks like a nice car that was put in dumb hands. Good thing you rescued her!
Once you get the IP on and primed with fresh diesel, running it off a gas can or something to establish a baseline that the engine runs. Then work your way down the fuel lines/tank. Sounds like the tank needs to be dropped and boiled.
You planning to continue running veg/bio, or purely diesel?
Yep I think that is what happened, and I have to now wonder just how many other w123's suffered the same fate
Nope no more veggie, I wouldn't mind bio but I have to go to far for that. Veggie is good if your traveling the freeway alot and you have time to flush the system with bio/diesel before its parked but running to the store its to hard to use.
BTW, besides totally diggin' your MB, what's the deal on your Dodge Dart in the background, 340 6 pac w a 4 speed? 2 dr hardtop saweet!
I think you're going to come out smelling like a rose on the W123 300D! It must be nice to be you most days!
That Dart is another one of my project cars, it was my first car and it was wrecked when I got it, hence the 300$ price...I fixed the front end and drove it as a daily driver till I got my 300D euro. It was in better shape, but I had a lady pull out in front of me and sliced the whole passenger side in half...then I hit a parked Buick showing off
Its all there now and everything under the hood is either new or rebuilt, she just needs cosmetics now. It is a 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger 318 auto over board to 340 stats with cam 2 bbl 8 3/4 rear...fun car but I get in big trouble with it
It is, I know I scored the 300d...I never pay over 500$ for a car....I could have gotten this one cheaper if I let him keep the other ip pump in the truck....I should have because now I know that a turbo ip won't fit a non turbo....anyone need an ip?
Well heres the update on the car. Got the battery and all the electrical works, all the windows roll up and down, sun roof opens and closes, antenna works correctly, original radio works nice(I know the speaker cones are bad), flashers work too.
I decided to do a little work while waiting for parts, stuffed rags in the open holes on the engine...so nothing would decide to make a house in there. Cleaned the hood hinge area and cleared the vents. I pulled the spin on filter off....EWWWWWW
I then decided to clean the out side of the ip....I then decided to check out the fuel pump got a new primer on its way here. Once I pulled the pump I found the no start problem....or one of them...It is froze solid, primer won't pump spring won't pop back out...I have it soaking in gas to see if that frees it up...if not I will pull the one off the turbo ip.....Now I am wondering if I should soak the ip in a 5 gal bucket of gas??? I would think the gas would eat through the veggie...but this is a whole new experience for me.
