Exclamation Before I take my MB to the shop...

I thought I'd get some opinions.

Recently, after driving for a bit, and thus heating the car up pretty good (easily done in this Texas heat), my '84 300D has trouble when I attempt to restart her. Sometimes she hesitates a few seconds after I turn the key. This is not the case once the car has cooled down. I thought at first it might have been the neutral safety switch, but the same symptoms exist with the car in neutral. The problem is getting progressively worse, and I fear that it is most likely the starter or solenoid.

Can I get an opinion from the mechanics here, who have no doubt seen this problem many times?
