1976 Mercedes Benz 300d
A recently acquired 1976 MB 300d would not start one morning. I found 4 of the 5 glow plugs bad. Purchasing new ones, I was informed that there may be a problem besides the plugs, as usually not that many fail at one time. (?) I am not a diesel person, and am hoping someone can explain the preheat system, what shuts it off when "ready to start", and is there a relay in the circuit that may cause this problem? I bought one manual, (chilton ) but found it woefully vague (lacking) regarding this system. Any insight would be appreciated. Can anyone recommend a good manual that will be more helpful and informative. Thanks for any help. Ajohnso
