yes I did check the adjustmant on the valves. #4 cylinder is a bit loose, all the rest are fine, just going to leave it for now, a little loose on one valve will be O.K.

1982 300SD Light Blue with dark blue interior. somewhere around 250,000 miles???

Replaced all filters, new stereo and interior, Cleaned out ALDA lines and Switchover valve, new Vacum Valve Levers, and a few other tid bits here and there.

Still working on the Odometer, speedometer and A/C System. Bought her for $500.00 from an officer who was transfering. Best purchase I've ever made. I love the ease of working on her and she's great to drive. Awesome!

Love the 116's, if only they had a smaller front bumper.
Did Euro models come with more reasonable front end?

As much as I love the classic W116 & W126 long body sedans. I have my eye on a 95 E300 Diesel to fill up my stable. The wifes Explorer will be exiled to the street. What do you guys think of the 95 E300?
