She lives again after 3 years of silence. I still need to pull the turbo and fix a leaky intake manifold gasket so i can get some boost and bleed the clutch and brakes and install the exhaust system

Here is a video of it running and driving with 5spd goodness. I need to install the exhaust and replace the intake manifold gasket its leaking boost. And it need the rear nitrogen canister replaced badly

RE: 1985 300td euro 5spd swap turbo diesel
I just swaped both motor mounts today and will be pulling the oil pan to replace the oil pick up screen as last time i had the pan off the pick up was missing so i orderd a new one. Updade no more leaks at least while its sitting now so thats a win next project brakes  and tires. I really want to find a nice set of pentas for it and the AMG front air dam just got to pinch some pennys for awhile
