The 83 300D-T which i bought had been maintained mostly with star-service all its life. The only thing major that has been replaced so far is the rear axle at around 160k. The car has 185k now and despite needing a tie-rod replacement and rear brakes soon. What other items should i consider replacing for preventive replacement? The timing chain has been suggested by the dealer, but an independent mechanic i have said the timing chain will give a rattle sound at start up if that was going bad, so don't worry about it right now. The coolant looks excellent, so do all other fluids? Please all suggestions are welcome! Thanks! I want to get 350,000 out of this car!
