Question Procedures and fluid recommendations? Help!


Well, before I try and take the newly acquired 1980 240D on a trip I would like to freshen it up. I plan on doing this...

Valve Adjustment
Oil Changes (engine, tranny, diff)
Brake work (if needed fluid-pads)
Fuel Filters
Oil Filter
New hand pump
Air filter

What are the fluids I should be using, and how does one go about doing all this? Hints, tricks, does & don'ts? It is about ZERO degrees here these days, and I may have it done by a local shop..anyone know what this might cost? I may just bite the bullet and do it all myself, but like I said...ZERO degrees!

Post this in "Diesel Discussion" as well. You will probably get more specific answers in that forum.
