I have a 82 300D thats blown up that I use for parts.
My 300CD calipers in the front started leaking, so I switched them with the 300D parts car. I got a rebuild kit for my front brakes which I will do this week along with the other improvements listed above. I may rebuild my rear brakes to be sure so I wont have to deal with it.
My front calipers now are from my 82 300d, and they dont leak, but the rear brakes from my 300cd are still on the 300CD and they lock. I am thinking the master cylinder still.
No Benzes in the stable at the moment, but itching for one again.
