just wanted to do a followup on this thread:

1. topped off the expansion tank for the radiator with 50/50 mix of MB antifreeze and water to required levels.
2. put in a bottle of "water wetter".

she now runs consistenly at just above 175 on the temp gauge and has not crept up past the 200 mark or even close so far.

I plan to take her out on the expressway tomorrow to run her up to 80 at least to see how she does.

I think I am stuck with my having to hold the accelerator down for two seconds prior to cranking a warm engine. She starts right up with that method and consistently as well.

Someday I will get a fuel pressure check done...she's almost due for her 87500 mile check so I'll ask the MB mechanics to check that out as well.
