While being nice tonight and paying attention to my '84 300D, I began to top it off with Delo.
To my horror I noticed the damn cardboard cap fall INTO THE HEAD.
I can't even see it.
I have a bad back and not enough time to remove the head myself tonight, so it would have to get towed.
So, I guess - any advice? Dare I run it? I mean, the cardboard is really thin and soaked with oil...on the other hand, tight MBZ tolerances probably did NOT anticipate stuff like this happening
I'd hate to block an oil passage or really kill something.
What would you do??????
