Default 85 190D Brakes & gen. ques...

Here we go...
Just purchased an 85 190d w/ 230k mi.
The brakes are real spongy, and seem to work at the floor. What could be the problem?
The thing won't shut off- I have to go under the hood and activate the cut off lever!
Looking at the motor, the left side of the valve cover has a small (pinhole) in it that exhaust gas leaves from...Is this normal?
Also there is {no} power when going up a steep grade...
Help, suggestions, etc will be greatly appreciated...
Thanks all,Bo
