HPOP reservoir oil level looks good.....

.... within 1/2-1" of threads after sitting for 5 days. Can I assume that I do NOT have a problem with the low pressure side then? I have a cold start/sat for 3 days starting issue that I was starting to think was due to oil not staying in the reservoir, but could be glow plugs or gp relay. Among other problems (up pipes leaking, oil in the coolant, to name a few), I'm hoping the bottom end of the engine doesn't need to come apart also.

the oil hpop mark is right on par, but it doesnt mean you dont have a lpop issue. It just means, your hpop isnt leaking back.

oil in coolant isnt good. Look into the oil cooler rebuild. Riffraff has the kit.

Your batteries could be getting weak..

Batts are new, cranks for days. Got your point, doesn't totally guarantee LPOP is 100%, but doesn't seem to be any major indication of that at this time. Read about the oil cooler deal, which is what I suspect at this point since I don't see any white goop on the dipstick or oil fill cap. Truck runs great, that is untill up pipes started leaking, which is obviously killing my boost. Just wish they would've waited till I got back from vacation pulling 5th wheel....

If you have a bad lpop and a good hpop, it will drain your reservoir. Just from my experience.

If I'm not mistaken, the short circuit device in the diagram illustrates it. That short circuit fills your reservoir which is where your hpop pulls it's oil from.
