Thank you all for the comments and thoughts. I've been chasing some rust on the body and floor pans, but the frame (until now) has been solid.

I do have a parts car and will look at the mount...

Safety is definitely the highest priority. The safety of a repair--let alone is it even possible--is what I'm questioning. Ugh... anyone looking for a parts car? <sigh>

Cracked Front Body to Subframe Mount - End of the Road?

My daily driver 1974 W115 240D started wearing the edges of its front tires pretty badly. I chalked it up to bad control arm bushings and the curvy mountain road I drive every day.

I finally...

Govert, thank you for the info--this is very helpful. I'll try to bleed the gallery. Do I need to loosen or remove the screw? Then, I just prime with the hand pump?

Thanks Diesel911. I'll check out the delivery valve again. When I had the pump on the bench, I turned it upside down to drain out all of the old oil (seemed like a good idea at the time) before...

I did ream out the glow plugs. Still waiting for the local Napa to get an order of replacement fast glows (80035), so I installed the two good I still had and put two that had their tips blown off...

One more note for those who attempt to adjust/pull the IP on a W115 chassis 240D:

I was able to access the 3rd bolt at the bottom of the pump by pulling the driver's side wheel. From there I used...

The car is FIXED! I took the plunge and pulled the IP with the crank set to 24 BTDC. Sure enough, the notch in the gear (looking straight at the front of the pump) was about 3 teeth to the left of...

leathermang, the timing chain was just replaced at the same time the shop replaced the IP. Based on that thread you referred me to, are you suspecting the timing chain was installed incorrectly? I...

Just to be certain, there's no other reason that the fuel flow from the drip tube would cut at at that point--like from an injection on one of the other cylinders (but, those should only happen at...

Is it reasonable to expect the duration of the fuel flow "cut off" by the element plunger that Diesel911 described above to last about 14 degrees of crank angle? If so, I'm strongly suspecting that...

Thanks for the explanation, that helps. So, the duration of injection when no fuel comes out would be very brief (ie, only a couple of crankshaft degrees?)

I went ahead and pulled the fan so I...

Cam timing looks good, lines up with the mark on the tower. What concerns me is that with the crank set at 26 BTDC rotating the pump away from the engine slows the fuel flow to drips and then stops...

No, I haven't verified the camshaft timing--I will do that (check that the dots line up on the cam at TDC?) Not sure how to adjust that if it's off. I have checked the valves twice since--a couple...

Hey Everyone-

I have a 74 240D that has had a long a sordid history with the injection pump. I stupidly took it to a general diesel shop to get the diaphragm replaced--they then sold me on a full...
