water crossover, and glow plug relay. When I turned the crank over to get at the IP bolts I could feel the crunchiness of the bearings. Slip/stick/slip/stick.

Got 4 coarse thread long injectors, but the other 4 are not worth the effort of pulling the AC system. Unless anyone wants the AC brackets? The top bracket bolted to the intake manifold - one of the bolt ears broke of.

No starter or bracket, sadly.
Sounds like you got a hell of a nice score! I wish there were more diesels in the junkyards around me.

BTW, did you think to pull valve covers to check for the cast rocker assemblies ?
Whats the gauge cluster look like in the '94? haha If its diesel specific and you want to let it go PM me.
