You are 180deg of cam rotation off, I think. You need to rotate the engine until the screw is visible -- If you pull the front cover off, the dowel pin should be straight up.

This only applies to the older vehicles. In at least 88 and later models(as far as I can tell), they replaced the resistance-type sender with a /switch/. It simply reads one way when there is more...

Might be both bad glow plugs and crummy injectors. Knowing what I do now, I'd not buy any 'remanufactured' injectors -- they're all just cleaned and matched. No parts are replaced.

Speaking of which, my Denso unit(inline gear reduction) was totally /simple/ to take apart -- Literally everything comes apart with a few screws. It made it quite easy to clean, grease, and(in my...

I just used whatever was handy; probably a mixture of both. Amount wise, enough to fill things to the top mark. If you get one of the larger bottles, it should be enough.

I pulled the heads; all the valves looked fine. Check the previous topic for pictures.
I did bend one single pushrod slightly, though. But only one. I suspect the lifters 'gave' just enough.
