    Noisy 240D

    I have a 1981 240TD with 120000 kms from new. It is very noisy (engine) and always has been. It has excellent compression, new injectors. Any hints on how I can reduce the noise? It is pretty sluggish (couldn't pull the skin off a rice pudding actually) - any clues here? Thanks for any...

    240d compression

    I have a 240d from 1982. 120k kms from new. It is low on power and my garage tells me the compression is low on three cylinders. Seems odd since I had a test 4000kms ago and it was ok. So, it could be, I guess, head gasket, valves or rings. First, am I right and second, what is the most likely...

    Apologies if this has been asked a million times but how do you check the timing chain stretch on this engine? If it needs changing, is it relatively easy to do using a chain and a split link? thanks

    240d engine noise and injection pump

    My 240d engine has done 100k kms in 30 years. The engine seems to be pretty noisy to me. I have done the valve clearances but nothing else. Injectors? Can the injectors be cleaned or only changed? All the filters are done btw. Also, there is a tinkling sound coming from the front of the engine -...

    1983 W123 240D - preferred tyre choice.

    Hello all, me again. My recently acquired 240D needs new tyres all round. What's the preferred choice between originality, performance (not that I'll going to be going very fast in a diesel W123 :) ) and cost? Currently my tyres are so old, worn and mismatched that I haven't got a clue. I...

    New to MB - just bought a W123 240D

    Hello All. My name's Ray Fenwick, and I've just bought a 1983 W123 240D. I'm usually a Citroen nut (an XM, 2 CXs, and a BX) but I've always had a soft spot for old Mercs, especially a diesel, and when this one came up I couldn't resist. I need to downsize the fleet as I'm planning to...

    240D Glow Plugs W114

    One of my glow plugs has died on my 240D, these are the old series wired glow plugs so when one goes they all go. I am having some trouble getting hold of a replacement quickly so i wondered if it would do any damage if I missed the dead one out when I put the wiring bars back. Anyone know if...

    My W123 240D

    Cant remember if I have done this but this is what I purchased about 2 months ago. The guy I brought it from was a clever photographer but when I got there I fell for it. Needs bodywork looking at but nothing drastic.

    W123 240D Can I lower this car

    Well as you can see from the title I want to know if I can lower this car?, if so its it difficult and where can I buy kits or parts. The thing is I need to replace the rear springs and looking at it I kind of like the lower rear.
