I'd be happy to take and  send you pictures of the throttle linkage of
my '79 240D. I am not sure if I have that type of linkage you are
looking for or not-mine is a series of rods with pivots that goes over
top of the valve cover. If that's it' let me know and I'll happy to
shoot and send. My brother has a 78 which might have the earlier type of

More like: "...car used to look like"!

Anybody got (or could take) a detailed photo of the throttle linkage
mess atop the valve cover?  I want to see how the extra linkage stuff I
found in the trunk fits on, so I can hook up the idle knob and cruise
actuator.  This is a 79 240D, without vacuum to the tranny.  It has the
around-the-engine-in- 80-days throttle linkage, a vestige of the
throttle butterfly system, rather than the ball-socket torque rod that
came later.
