Vacuum problem--looking for vacuum chart for 83

I'm looking for a vacuum chart for an 83 240D. I have a vacuum problem and my mechanic says it is NOT the vacuum pump. Has good pressure. He needs a Chart of the vacuum system. Can anyone help me to locate one, possibly online?
Thanks.

Thumbs up Vacuum Schematic

If you get me an e-mail address I can send you a copy of the vacuum schematic from my diagnostic manual as an attachment later this evening if you'd like. Is yours a manual or an automatic tranny as the vacuum system is somewhat different for each?

Autozen:

I have had this 83 240D for about a year now. I love her, but the tranny hasn't shifted right since I got her. It feels like a standard even though it's an automatic. It won't shift unless I let off the gas. I replaced the brake booster right away and then some other minor repirs but I let this go until now, but I can't stand it. It drives me crazy. I thought I'd finally get it done and the mechanic said that the vacuum pump is working fine. He needs a schematic of the vacuum system before he can figure it out. I got a lot of input from the MB forums about 6 months ago when I was thinking of fixing it then, but I would appreciate anything else anybody has to offer. I take the car back in on wed.

Billybob emailed me his schematics and I hope they help. I can't tell, because I'm not a mechanic....so I'll go from here and do what I can.

To Tom

Thanks Tom,
I found the **************.com and I found the manual for my car. If this doesn't work, I'll order one. The cheap way first.

You will have to sort out the whole vacuum system, because is what shifts that tranny. There is no control pressure rod. Mercedes lays out a couple of procedures in the manual to set up the linkage and vacuum.

Good luck,
Peter
