Re: Running 82 Mercedes Turbo Diesel $350

Just gonna put it out there I know some diesel Mercedes have vacuum operated transmissions. I don't recall if this is one or not but if it is it could be a simple fix as replacing the vacuum line and having this thing up and running

Re: Running 82 Mercedes Turbo Diesel $350

Car's gone, which bodes well for my sanity (just got rid of the shifter kart, leaving only the Honda Super Cub, Guzzi, and 540i needing attention after Inde) but I must dispel the misconception about the transmissions in these. vacuum is used to modulate shifts (make softer)... Remove vac line and plug hose, you get hard shifts. That's the only difference. If it slips in a given gear, it still will after you take vacuum issues out of the equation. Neither my 300TD daily driver or the S500 LeMon have vacuum modulation still in place, btw.
