I just replaced the three belts in my 1980 300D (what an adventure!), and now I notice that the power steering pump (which must be moved when changing the belts) is crooked. It's angled towards the engine. I think I remember it being somewhat crooked, but I don't know if this much. When I checked the power steering fluid level, it looked like it was almost going to pour out on one side. Does anyone else have a crooked p/s pump? I looked in my Haynes manual and the picture they have is kind of crooked also.

If it helps any - mine is canted slightly towards the engine as well. Its not enough to really spill anything, but the slight angle is most noticable when checking the fluid level. It didn't really concern me a whole lot - every other w123 I've seen was the same way...
