I've been following the thread with great interest. I have a newly acquired '81 300D... and know little abt Diesel.
How much do the likely scenarios cost to remedy - either via shop or as advanced DIY'er?
With '81 300D market value of several thousand dollars, it seems like cost to fix problems (both time and money) could be high compared to how much the car would be worth after it's fixed.
Help me with the value proposition.
'86 300E 120k (Midnite)
'81 300D 190k (Bullet)
