On the board here the "starter pull" is affectionately known as a Gorilla knob. This kinda validates what Zeitgeist said when he suggested that: "Though I hope your left arm has some good muscles, cuz you'll need them with a pull start." However, seems as though I tended to use the right arm to pull it rather than the left. Wish the clock in the 220D had been as vocal as the one in the 123, great to time the glow after the lite goes out or in the case of the 220 the whole glow!!

I would have to say that after 20yrs of driving the 220D, that it isn't really that bad a job to change the oil filter on these engines. Did it in a very lite colored shirt once and never got a drop of that black oil on me.
