1974 240D Greasecar conversion question

Hi,

Bought a "new" MB the other day, a 1974 240D. Finally got back into the MB diesels, been gone too long. I had a 1987 300d a couple of years back.

This one was converted to a wvo prior to me buying it. Not sure what I am going to do with that part of it, but it is interesting. The Engineering Dept. of a local college converted it as part of a project.

Slowly working my way to bringing it up to road worthiness - changed some filters, cleaned up a few things. Have yet to install a clutch slave to get it on the road.

The conversion is a Greasecar brand.
Does anyone have an installation manual or a website that help me identify the parts relating to this conversion.
Also, there is a wire that is loose, so I want to try to get an idea where things belong.

Thanks in advance to any and all replies.

I'm going to be away form my computer for a while so if I do not respond right away, I'm not ignoring anyone.

Dwayne
