anybody have any leads, preferably in the midwest area, so we (friend and I) can check it out? My parish priest wants one. He loves my SD and one of his teachers in the school (a MOPAR nut) got a great deal on a nice 240D a few months back. (He already replaced both axles (one was bad and he figured he might as well do them both because they were cheap and easy - MB axles too)) and upgraded the read diff for more speed in 4th - MOPAR guys make good diesel converts). With 9 diesel MB's (newest being 1985) "gracing" the Church parking lot, Father Dean wants to sell his Toyota and jump on the bandwagon. Any help is appreciated.

It was rare and brief at first, and stopped when the blinkers were activated. It has gotten more frequent and longer lasting, and this morning when I turned the key the left blinker came on and would not quit. A bit of fooling with the turn switch got it to go back to an occasional buzz, but I suspect things need to be dealt with. I pulled the knee panel and determined that it was the left buzzer that was letting go. My suspicion is the I am getting a short in the steering column and need to pull the blinker stalk and check that. For those familiar with such things, I could hope it is something that sounds easier. Any other suggestions? If that is what it needs, how big a job is that? USAF mechanic son is out of the area for training, and I am hoping it will hold until he is done and back in the area.. Is it something a used to be handyman could tackle - keeping in mind that more than minimal exertion is not a possibility for me. Thanks for the help- BillR Jacksonville FL 1981 300SD EM 270 k miles
