Seeing as VM also has these 2.8's in some marine apps, it couldn't hurt to check around to see if any larger boat places have any qualified diesel techs if none can be found through any of the usual diesel shops.

Some of the private import repair shops have been known to have a diesel tech or one that they could recommend. Just a thought.

Good link for anyone on the hunt.

If the seller/lister was a bit more up on the 2.8 - he or she should have known it was not a Mercedes.

This reminds me of a Peugeot diesel that my dad had in the late 70s/early 80s. The diesel itself had problems three times and it was always tough not only getting parts but finding someone to work on it. The car looking almost new ended up going to the junk yard with only 100k on it for those reasons.

But I hope of course for the OP that that's not the result!

Ever try one of the European specific auto shops that specialize in diesels? That might be an option.

Still driving the Libby.

I have 128,000 on the odometer.
That makes about 30k on the new motor.
Doing great.
I want to say something about the belt pulleys.
I have an answer for that squeaking of the pulleys.
I paid to have the tensioner pulley changed and I still had squeaking.
So I got my squeeze bottle of high speed electrical motor lubricant caster oil with the pullout tube.
I bit on the end of the tube until i got it bend at a 90 degree angle.
Turned the bottle upside down, jockeyed it down in between the belt and cowling to the pulleys, squeezed and lubricated both side of the bearings on both idler pulleys and the tensioner pulley, then inside the tensioner pulley where the spring is located and ((voila)) no more damn squeaking.
They were all squeaking and bearings tight as new.
SWEET!

Now, I have a question?!?

It idles at 750 rpm, like it should, but it shakes (like it should) at that idle speed but when I push the throttle up to say 900 rpm it smoothes out so pretty.
How can I ease the idle up 150 rpm?
It's not like the old days when I open the hood and there is an idle screw on the carburator.
???
