1980 300TD with mostly original or very old hoses & seals. Don't notice a lot of cracks or dry rot, but oil is leaking everywhere and my power steering fluid keeps running out every couple of months. Wondering if I should just replace everything to avoid future problems? Any ideas of how to come up with a list of all parts I would need? Thanks!

You should have a thourough steam clean done then reevaluate where the leaks are infact originating.

After this, you will have a good idea on parts and labor.
