Injector cups?

My 2001 250 started rough this afternoon and died 20 seconds later. The coolant tank has diesel in it.

My guess is a leaking injector cup flooded a cylinder while the truck was parked.

Is there anything else it could possibly be? The diesel in the tank is very new so I'm 99% sure it's related. I don't see how a head gasket could cause diesel to get into the coolant, but I don't know much about these engines.

Just to add, I spoke with my local International dealer and they cannot find part 1814376C1 in stock anywhere. Is this the correct number for the cups/sleeves/tubes/whatever?

Also, this all happened very quickly. Is it possible that a crack or gasket somewhere else in the engine could cause diesel to enter the coolant at a high pressure?

I'm really not to excited about this, but I plan to at least get an inside look at the cups as soon as I can make space in my shop (oil well tools) and get my truck towed over here.

i believe the only way for fuel to get into the cooling system is a bad injector cup/sleeve. i also own a '01 and just put in all 8 cups.my truck was getting fuel in the cooling system and over filling the over flow tank. i tore it down and tried to pressurize the cooling system to find out which cup was bad but,after holding 16 psi over night i decided to replace them all.i bought the "whitaker tools" removal & install tools and all i can say is they work GREAT!!! 1/2 an hour to pull the cups (all 8 after tear down) and less time to tap in the new cups.shoot me a PM if you need any help.
