The new setup has a 24 mm top bolt. The old one was 22 or 21 mm (the one you have).
X2. I would have thought the 84 had the newer style, maybe some PO changed it to the older style.

one from the JY couldn`t cost more than $10 or so. look for the part# I listed in post #4. or pull the bolt and see if it has 2 "O" rings.

I changed the one in the 80 240 to the newer style when I got it to make life simpler.

there were three HP ratings on the OM616...

1) Not much power
2) Even less power
3) Not nearly enough power!! 240D w/auto

Anyone that thinks a 240D is slow drives too fast.

80 240D Naturally Exasperated, 4-Spd 388k DD 150mph spedo 3:58 Diff

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works
