REALLY? that's odd. I wonder why MB would introduce the separator one year, then take it away, then put it back...

Couldn't tell you, but I will try to get a photo tomorrow when it is light outside. I will probably drive right past where my friend works, and I will stop by and pop the hood and take a photo (I will call him first and tell him!).

Has a steel line from front of block to head, and appears to have a port for a flywheel sensor, if I'm looking at the right thing (between the bend in the coolant hose and the bottom of the filter canister).

Thanks

Yes the steel line is correct. The sensor/hole is on the adapter plate between the engine and trans. You would be able to see it if you view down between the filter stand, and the firewall.

By the way, you seem to have a LOT of rust there!! I would hate to see underneath the body on that car! (we Californian's are not used to seeing rust!).

The item with the green dashpot is the Vacuum Control Valve.

The steel line in pic #2 is for coolant.

I agree, a ton of rust.

Lot of rust? Welcome to central and eastern Canada.

That amount of rust isn't really unusual for an old Mercedes that's sat for an extended period, but I'm surprised to hear it was stored inside. Looks more like cars I've seen that sat outdoors.

You HAVE looked over the frame rails and driver's footwell, right?

By the way, the MBz manual states that cars with the ochre dipstick take .5 liter more than previous ones in an oil change... but I haven't found that to be true on my '85.

I've degunked the engine S/N, but can't get it all. 617.951 -- large space -- 06 appear to be the first two digits of the S/N (could be 00, but I'm fairly sure it's 06). Obviously I need more powerful lights and inspection mirrors. The transmission is 722 303 02 057100. Are these likely '81, or later?

Still looking for that mysterious sensor or lack thereof on the transmission adapter plate. Please see attached pic.

Yep, the car's rusty. Nope, you wouldn't want to see underneath, but there's nothing structural -- no holes in the floor or weak frame/suspension members. Front floors look good inside under the mats. The dash has no cracking at all!

Thanks.

The last photo is close, but not close enough. The sensor or hole would be just out of view in the photo, behind the oil filter stand. You can feel around the adapter plate, and feel it sticking out of the surface, or just a hole if the sensor was removed. If no sensor, I imagine that just the IP has been changed.

um, are things different than the "D" models? The Turbo wasn't intro'd into the engines until 1982. '82-85 had turbos.

Isn't there an engine ID number somewhere on the engine that can be looked up to tell if it's the original, or later model engine?

Ever figure out why the warning buzzer was on with the door open and the key out of the ignition? My 83 300SD does the same exact thing.

All SDs were turbodiesels.

An NA engine can't do much with the weight of an S-Class....

I just replied to your other thread on this. I have a very, very dim memory that my first SD did this several times and it turned out to be a blown fuse.

Check your fuses and the state of the fuse holders (if excessively oxidized, use some fine grit sandpaper to clean them up).
