Hello all, I am considering a purchase of a 87 300d with 190k on it. The car has a solid body with no rust, good brakes, tires, new struts, etc. From the conversation that I had from the owner he seems to be an upfront and knowledgeable person. I have two concerns, first off, he has replaced the head gasket, now from what I have read on here about the #14 casting on the cylinder head, that could be a major issue. I am worried that if the gasket was leaking, the engine got hot and warped or cracked the head. Should this still be a concern if the engine does NOT have the #14 casting number? Second, the owner claims that the transmission bushing is worn and that the car will shudder on rare occasion. I have only seen pictures of this car and spoke with the owner for 10 minutes, the car is about a 4 hour drive away and he is asking $2,200/ obo. What do you guy's think? Thanks in advance. FYI, this would be my 3rd Benz diesel and I am somewhat framiliar with them, but as the saying goes, " a little bit of knowledge is dangerous"
