Greetings to ALL !
Please bear with Me as I am a NEW MB owner with absolutely NO diesel experience. I have purchased a 1980 MB 300d for $600.00 that runs well smokes a little but shifts HARD from 1st to 2d gear. I have been trying to find the engine serial number so that I can order the parts needed to repair what I believe to be a worn vacum pump.
I looked on the injection pump side of the engine and the only numbers I have found thus far are 617.011.09.01 and directly under those numbers 11D/80 (By the way those numbers are located about the center of the block under the head)
Can anyone please tell Me .. where to look to find the correct numbers ?? I would REALLY appreciate any help
Thank you !!!!!
