Really? Notice any wagons? My '84 rear hatch glass is missing. I have been to Fairfield but never to Richmond - how many diesels did you notice? Thanks!

Good luck with that, that's a tough one. There's a wagon up in Portland. I'm heading back there in a week and could pull the glass if you want to work something out. PM me

At Richmond, there are two 240s, a 300sd, and a 300d

Soooo expensive. I asked them about an om617 valve cover and they quoted me over $100 for a used one

Man, that's really too bad. I've never actually used them, only lusted after several of the cars they have there. I picked up an entire working head at Pick n Pull for less than that!

That would be great! An extra hatch glass could come in handy -how much?

Has anyone been to the Stockton Pick n Pull? I was told by a manager that it's their biggest yard in NorCal. I'd hate to go up there on a whim and not find anything I needed.

They only list the series not the model. So you don't know if it's a 300e or 300d or 300sd or 300td.
AND, they frequently screw up their online inventory. They put the wrong year, wrong model, wrong row number, etc. I never trust their computer system.

You do realize that the website does not list whether or not a 300 series Mercedes is a diesel, nor does it list the color of the cars don't you?
