This weekends project tips or hints

So I am going to do some winter tune up this weekend and was wondering if I am covering all the bases while I am in there. So here is what I plan on doing.

HPOP lines both driver and passenger
Glow Plugs
Valve Cover Gaskets
Under Valve Cover Gasket
Injector O rings
Glow Plug Relay

If you have any suggestions on anything else to do while I have it torn apart I would appreciate it. Thank you for our time and help.

Is somthing wrong with the O-rings and the valve cover gaskets and harness. I wouldn't bother replacing these untill you have a problem with them since they probably won't leave you stranded as long as they look alright and your not using oil.

I am not using any oil. My truck just blows blue smoke when I start it up in the mornings now that the temperature has started to cool off. I have used a half of quart of oil in 5,000 miles. I just changed it and noticed I was a half of a quart low. I didn't think much of it. Let me know if I should be concerned. It is not leaking a drop on the driveway just to add.

Take our your fuel filter and see if their is any oil at the bottom of the bowl. A half a quart in 5k is not too bad.

Use the Stancor Relay for the GPR. Motorcraft (Beru) Glowplugs. Thermostat, I used the 203* from Dieselsite. I like it. Also the billet thermo housing (not stamped metal like OEM.)
How many miles you got?
Heck I've probably used more oil than that in 5k miles. But I've also got 315k on it. Just getting old.
If you're gonna do the coolant filter and thermo., do the coolant flush and switch to CAT EC-1 rated ELC.

The dieselsite billet housing won't work on an OBS without buying a new upper rad hose.
