I have heard it said (no first-hand experience) that caution is advised with pressure washers. The pressure is high enough to squirt water past gaskets and into places that aren't supposed to get wet. That warning delivered, I think a pressure washer is a good way to strip layers of hardened gunk off of engines and engine compartments that former owners have failed to adequately maintain. Have the engine warm (not hot), spray on some engine cleaner and let it soak in, then carefully apply the spray from the pressure washer. Repeat as necessary. Careful hand scraping may also help.

according to brain gears site???

I may need to find out what car I have. How would I find my cars production date. My car is an 1986 300 SDL. Which seams to me that my car has the 603.961 which is 126 model. Their seems to be a 603 engine in a 124 model is this a 300 SD???? This is according to page http://mb.braingears.com/126_DISC1/program/Maintenance/MY81/0101.pdf which is page 23 through 31 on the online manual. Which I may have to worry about extra steps.

"I need to find some ramps that will take some of that load."

I have a stone driveway. Never trusted the cheap metal ramps on stones. I use concrete blocks, 8x8x16 and short wood pieces (2x4) .

Would need a tornado for this thing to fall on me.

In reference to a filter, first one I tried was the 'best' one carried at NAPA. rubber ring wouldn't fit properly. Used a Mann next, quite a pleasant surprise

You have the 126.125 with the 603.961. The 124 models with the 603 is the 1987 300D (124.133/603.96) and the 1987 300TD (124.193/603.96). The only other 124's with diesels were made from 90-93 with the 602 turbo (124.128/602.962) and in 95 with the 606 NA (124.131/606.91). There was no 300SD with the 603 motor. There was a 350SD, but it had the rod-bender 3.5L 603.97.
