om602 turbo, changing injectionpump, timing and procedure, going from stock RS158 to 7.5mm dieselmeken 180CC RS177

This is what the w115 looked like when it was just bought, converted from 230:4 gasoline to 240 diesel, mild rust, a sticker from Thailand on the window, Father and i spent a couple of weeks fixing the rust. and it looked almost like new.
