What maintenance should I do while the motor is out?

I've acquired a 1997 E350 shuttle van with a 7.3L diesel and E4OD auto. I plan on using the motor and tranny in a repower job. The engine has 360,000 on it, but pretty much no blowby and starts up pretty quick with a little white smoke at cold start. While the engine is out and on a stand I plan on replacing the glow plugs. It's going into a pretty tight engine compartment (I'm not sure if it will fit yet), so what else should I consider doing while everything is accessible? Has anyone tried to replace the output shaft on an e4od inorder to add 4wd?

Or you could do a van pedistol and delete the pedistol ebpv

It's an e350 van chassis, would it have a EBPV? How can I tell?

I would definitely roll some new main and rod bearings in it. I did mine with 250k on the engine and they were shot! $170 and a little time, but the peace of mind is priceless. I also replaced the IPR when I had my engine out. Pull the LPOP and see if it's looking good yet. If its going into a tight space I would also reseal the oil cooler, replace UVCH (so when/if it shorts out you don't have to fight getting the valve covers off.

I would do uppipes, and all o-rings. From the turbo to the head plugs. Also rebuild the oil cooler. The fuel bowl hoses are easy to do in an engine bay.

I think I'll definitely rebuild the oil cooler, that will be completely inaccessible in the new engine bay (Right up against the frame rail). I'll look at the uppipes, but they looked really good from the doghouse. Everything above the manifolds should be fairly easy to access in the new engine bay, so I'm mostly concerned with things that fail on the bottom half of the engine. I'm on the fence about rolling in new bearings, since it's not knocking, and I'm not doing rings, so it's only a half of a half assed rebuild. My understanding was that rings would probably present a problem before rod/main bearings.

What are the problems typically associated with the fuel bowl? Initially I just intended on running an electric lift pump into the stock fuel bowl, but I see most/all E-Fuel conversions include replacing/removing the stock fuel bowl.
