Central Jersey Valve Adjustment

Hey I need a valve adjustment done to my 1987 300TDT and I wanted to see if anyone here has had positive experience with a shop or a individual who can do the work for me.

Thanks for looking!

Read through the NJ threads.
There are several great shops near you.

Not sure where you are, but I work on MB diesels...although the 1987 603 engines do not require periodic adjustment.

Dave,

I was under the impression that the 603's were due for an adjustment every 30,xxx miles; I will have to look this up a little bit more than.

whunter,
I know there are many shops that people have gone to in the Central Jersey area, was this a bad place to ask people their experience?

section in the forum "Good MB Shops"

It's under General Discussion.

The 603.XXX 's have Hydraulic (OIL PRESSURE OPERATED) valve lifters and
do not require "Valve Adjustments".

Thank you for verifying this for me. Is there a forum topic about general maintenance for the 603 just like how new cars have regularly scheduled maintenance schedules?
