the pump is orginal as far as i can tell. the truck has 144k miles on it.... i took the fuel filter out at the top, there is fine aluminum shavings inside the base, there sitting on the plastic piece where the filter stem is. talked to a guy who is a diesel tech and he said that isnt good. he said most likely the pump has let go and now it needs new everything.
since trying to crank it, the oil level has risen again, not alot but it is now above the plastic bulb on the stick.
i did take off the passanger side fuel rail and lines to replace 2 rocker arms that was missing the metal clip that holds that piviot ball in. strange thing is, i fired it up after that and ran it 15-20 minutes to make sure there was no leaks at any of the lines. once i was satisfied, i shut it off and since then has never fired again lol.
this thing has been doing my head in.
