Lost power, Smoked, Quit running, Not starting

Recommended Posts

Hi, I bought a 92 with only 140K. Replaced [ame=http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dautomotive&field-keywords=injection%2Bpump]injection pump[/ame] with stock rebuild because other one with bigger fuel pin started being erratic. Has 16cm turbo housing instead of 21cm stock. Ran great for 10k then while driving I heard different exhaust noise like a kick down from the turbo area and lost power. Pulled over and while idling it was smoking badly. Drove another 5 minutes at top speed of 45 and coolant guage which usually stays at midway until thermostat opens climbed to 3/4 and pyrometer went up to 12 and boost went up to 20 but could be confused on [ame=http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007ES6AY6]boost part[/ame]. Pulled over going down hill when I saw driveway so put it in neutral and was trying with gas pedal to keep running but quit. Would not restart. Had towed, cooled off, but still will not start. I was near bottom of tank but I pushed up on bottom spring loaded thing under [ame=http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dautomotive&field-keywords=fuel%2Bfilter]fuel filter[/ame] and fuel came out. Tried to hand pump lift lever on lift pump but lever has no pressure in any part of stroke after putting 4 gallons in with probably 4 still in there. There was oil puddles along the whole passenger side where valve cover seats and injectors thread in to block. Was not like that before incident. [ame=http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=radiator]Radiator[/ame] never boiled over and is still full and dip stick has no milkyness. My first diesel and I hope driving that last 5 minutes did not hurt engine. I live in Kalispell but used to live in Sandpoint for 14 years and found your site searching for KDP fix and found a post years ago about Harold selling washers and called him recently and bought one but have not installed yet. Any help would be appreciated.
