Returning member with an old Merc (300d estate)

Hi All,

I've not been on here for quite some time (since I sold my Skoda Octavia, 2015 I think?), But thought I'd reaquaint myself with this fine forum after my latest purchase..

It's a 1991 Mercedes s124 e300td. Powered by a normally aspirated OM603 6C 12v diesel with fully mechanical fuel pump.

In this model's case, the T stands for touring (station wagon/estate) rather than turbo as the UK never got turbo diesel w/s124 in standard form.

113bhp and a 4speed auto, coupled to 1600kg (3500lbs) of car means performance I 'leisurely'

It currently has about 316k miles on it, and was bought for $360. It's MOT'D until July 2019.

It currently has no modifications, and will happily run on SVO / WVO at very high percentages. Currently it is running 85% SVO and 15% diesel. It starts ok even in -3 degrees.

She needs a service (parts on order) and the autobox could do with a flush, but she starts goes and stops so I can't complain.

I'm currently getting set up to process WVO which should make the 23mpg thirst a bit more wallet friendly.
