Greetings All, Reference made to a '80 300TD Station wag.

Anyone out there with injection pump troubleshooting experience please respond. I am trying to solve my oil losses one at a time, and conquered the biggest one so far, the vacuum pump diaphragm which was sucking oil and sending it to the air filter housing, but there is a second one that maybe coming from the injection pump to the key switch. I find oil on the underneath of the ignition switch generally after about 80 mile of driving. Just a drop or two, but would rather fix the problem now. The engine seems to shut down rather quickly after turning key off, but after pulling vac line off shut down diaphragm, I see traces of oil. Is it sucking oil from injection pump through a leaky diaphragm? Any info would be appreciated.


To coin a phrase I also like the smell of diesel in the morning.
