I may be heading up to Spokane here in the next week to pickup some parts for my project car. I may be able to swing by.
If I had to guess he replaced the spring in the fuel bowl, specifically the fuel pressure regulator.
Do you have a scan tool where you can monitor the injection control pressure at startup and idle?
I would highly suggest that you don't use Seafoam in your crank case. It is one thing to use it in the diesel fuel, even then I suggest it only as a thing to do when changing fuel filter.
I suppose you could add it into the crank case, but really these injectors are complex and expensive beasts. From my understanding they don't like exposure to alcohol which is one of the main ingredients in Seafoam. With it in the oil it is what is pressing down the poppet on the injector.
I would instead run some cheapo oil in it to clean it all out.
I'm sure he knows diesels soot up oil real quick. Only way to extend that total black time is to run a good filter such as the huge donaldson elf-7405, which is what I run, as well as a good oil like Rotella 15w40. It has kept my oil honey colored for far longer.
