Ticking Timebomb!

i got leaks all over the place, the injectors, the return lines, the top of the filter bracket, and pump! im a full time student so money is tough to come by, and i dont know if there is some cheap way to fix all these problems. i dont have enough money for new injectors/pump/filter bracket. is it worth fixing? or should i just put it off to the side and find something else? im a pretty good gasser mechanic, just new to diesel so i dont know a whole lot.

Thank You For Any Help/Advice!!!!
John

I got a kit from here Arizona Bosch Repair Dealer Southwest Diesel & Electrical diesel repair shop fuel injection pump, Diesel Parts & Service Fuel Injection Specialists Pumps Injectors Exhausts Filters Alternators & Starters Fuel Additives for the injector caps, o rings and new return hose and clamps. Been a while, but i dont think it was very much. I dont see it on their webpage anymore so you might call.
Is it worth fixing? Only you can answer that.
Not sure where the pump is leaking but, You will have to decide what needs to be done to fix it.
Your going to have to spend some money to fix it. Good luck.

You sure you need new injectors? most of the time when they are leaking, its just the orings under the plastic caps. Glow plugs shouldnt be much over $100. Just did mine a few months back.
BTW you know not to use autolite glow plugs right? You have to use the motorcraft plugs or you will have bigger issues.

the van has about 300-400k miles on it and everything is still original from the factory (injectors, plugs whatnot). yeah, the orings are leaking as well.
ok, didnt know that, thanks for the heads up
