This is so hijacked and OT I may as well unload too. Some of the best local old MB's I've seen have been from grannies and grandpas. One old gal has a 124 300D with 60k on it.

Try checking the earths as well. The FSM gives all the locations. Anywhere an earth is subject to heat and vibration such as in the engine bay could be a culprit.

The diff mounts in my TE were so bad you could see daylight through the bottoms of them. But no vibrations only a bit of clunking.

The sedan vibrated like that and it was the flexible coupling.
