Hello all,
I’ve become a owner of a 83 300TD and wanted to know if the engine noise of this diesel sounds bad / bad knocking:

To me it doesn’t sound great but then again I’ve never owned a diesel...
I’m planning to do a valve adjustment and compression test next week to see if this thing is worth keeping.
Thanks for any help,

Driving diesels since 1975. Sound is perfectly normal. There s/b a large sound encapsulation panel covering engine bottom.
