E300D drivetrain shudder

I have a 1995 E300 diesel that has done 210k KM.
There is a shudder in the drive train on start off in first gear.
It is particularly noticable with a full load, when accelerating hard or when starting on an incline.
I use the car here in New Zealand as a taxi and it is sometimes a little embarrassing when the car takes off with a shudder.
It will not do it on the flat under reasonable acceleration exept when I change from reverse to drive and then it will nearly always shudder on take off.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions.Thank you.
