You mentioned cans to catch the drips. I have a 1 liter soda bottle under the antenna to catch the drips. cut the bottom off, slit it up one side. slipped it up from the bottom of the antenna motor, the slit goes around the flat strap to the fender. then it is Zip tied to the motor. the drips go into the bottle instead of the quarter panel. after each rain storm, place a can under the cap, unscrew, and drain it.

The 80 240 came with a manual antenna, mine got broken off, and can`t source another one. finally found an electric Chinese one in PNP just so the radio works. eventually I`ll find the proper one for it.

The only manual one`s I have seen for the 240 are made by the Chicom`s, and aren`t even close to the original.

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
