That would make sense. But I haven't attempted anything that big personally yet. Right now I'm only considering doing an engine mount by myself. Removing the pump probably will require you to remove lots of other stuff. I know that you will at least have to take the V-belt off, but I don't know what else. Have you been on mercedesshop.com's diesel forum? They've all been very helpful for me. The only thing I can't get out of any of them is how much torque I need to bolt my engine mount with. Do you know?
