A friends family had a 82 300sd in the garage. It had sat for about 8 years, been driven minimal for about 5 years prior. It's got 145000 actual miles it. I replaced the battery and it started right up and drove 30 miles home. It's a beast! Was thinking of doing the oil, transmission, differential fluid and putting some anti fungal/fuel additive, and air filter. Fuel filter at some point. Any other ideas on major or minor stuff I should do immediately and what other things I should try to do?

Check the Rubber stuff:
Oil Cooler Hoses
Transmission Cooler Hoses
Drive Shaft Flex Discs
Drive Shaft Bearing Support
Rear Axle Boots (they are filled with Oil at the Factory cracks can lead to lubricant loss)
Motor Mounts (on the W123s when the left side Motor Mount gets squashed the Power Steering Belt has been known to cut through tha Oil Cooler Hose)
