If by metal you are referring to the sludge buildup from the bottom of the housing, that is probably normal, especially with that kind of mileage.

Jason,
I wish you could have made it too. I had a couple other things you would likely have been interested in. Maybe next time you are over this way.
Take care.

You are correct. One on the manifold and two on the engine.
One at the rear passenger side and one at the front drivers side.
They go between the fuel line adapters and the head.

I don't think there has been any change in the check valves but I haven't bought any new ones so that may be wrong.
If they were installed with the correct Loctite sealant they should come right...

This sounds like a priming issue.
The pump gears need oil in order to pump. If you put the pump on without any oil on the gears it probably will not prime.
I used a thin coat of white grease on...

You can leave the check valves in but it isn't much more work to take them out. I would if it was me.
You have to replace the plugs where the oil lines connect.

It would be best to bypass the coolant to the manifold.
Heating the manifold and tank isn't necessary for diesel and diesel doesn't need or like heat.

No moving parts, works with stock gauge and had no problems.

The heat is needed more at the manifold than at the tank.

I plumbed mine to go through the wrap then into the manifold and...

You do not want to re-use the seal!!! That is how the oil got into the motor.

Monitoring for a leak may not show it either as the oil will be...

Unless I am mistaken you should not be using that piece at all.
That looks like the old style plate to me, about 1/4" thick.
The Scorpion should have a much thinner plate maybe 1/8" with an o-ring...

I doubt the engine ran long after barfing out it's innards so the injectors are probably fine. Did it have PMRs or forged?
