If the car has a very pronounced shake when hot it's usually the damper screw for the rack in the injection pump(rack limiter screw). Mercedes made an "updated" screw for those with more spring tension on the pin to dampen rack ocillations. It's a cheap part and easy to install(screws into rear plate of pump). I'd do that first. If it needs motor needs motor mounts. If it needs an air cleaner bracket or mounts...that's fairly obvious too. But to fix the "loping and shaking" syndrome, the rack limiter is the fix(unless the pump itself has a bad delivery element, then it time to rebuild the pump). Check the archives, I think either me or someone else has published the part number before.

For rack idle pin, see the following links:

The turbo drain grommets refer to the rubber parts sealing the turbo oil return tube. The tube has two sections. The upper section is mounted to the bottom of the turbocharger via two bolts. Continue down the upper section is the lower section which ends at the oil pan. There is a rubber o-ring on top of the lower section where the top and bottom sections meet. There is a rubber grommet on top of the oil pan where the lower section enters. There is also an o-ring at the bottom end of the lower section inside the oil pan below the grommet.
