Odds and Ends

Got the Mercedes on the road!

Thank you to those who helped!

So exhausted! Too exhausted to post pictures... Will update when rested. For now, like to get a couple things addressed.

First issue was the the throttle linkage at the arc adjustment. Just pushed all the way to the driver's side for now. Figure the specification is in the manual, but any tricks that I should know?

Second, got a major vacuum leak, but all the lines are hooked up. Is there supposed to be a seal between the brake booster and the master cylinder? Don't recall there being one, but all I can think of...

Third, any reason not to drive with a major vacuum leak? I don't mind it shifting hard, just don't want to do damage...
