Drain valve finished. No more leaks. Nothing is ever as easy as it looks . Never. Now on the the next of many problems.

I feel your pain. In the process, myself, of updating my 94. Just had the fuel lines replaced, new sending unit with the sock deleted, new fuel tank, Carter lift pump, pre lift pump fuel filter, Fluidampr harmonic balancer, and billet crankshaft pulley. Fortunately, I have a local shop that does this kind of work, provided they don't have to get into the engine. Next project will be glow plugs and injectors but with only 87k miles on the clock, it will probably be awhile before it actually needs to be done. I'll drop the money into repairs rather having a monthly payment that rivals my mortgage. Hoping that fixing or replacing known issues will keep it going for another 20+ years.
