IDI Engine / Re: 1.6 TD reliable performance build

I remove the OUT Bolt and fill it to as high as I can.  That gets more fuel into the pump as it is higher than the inlet bolt you used.  You can draw fuel into the pump by putting a vacuum on the line going back to the fuel tank and that will generally get you most all the air out of the IP.  If you still have no draw then I would suspect the vanes are stuck inside the pump and not doing their job.

As for the coolant leak, check the freeze plugs on the back of the block.  Weeping down to the turbo from them I suspect.

Been awhile since I posted.  Got the truck back from the fabricator who welded up aluminum intercooler tubing, intake and fabbed a 2.5" stainless downpipe. 

Figured out that the stock ground location on the transmission mount is shoddy, so grounded directly yo the trasnsmission.  Starter now turns over easily. 
2 problems that I am trying to troubleshoot. 
First is fueling.  I primed the fuel filter by removing the small screw atop the fuel filter housing and topping off with ATF.  Primed the injector pump by removing the inlet banjo bolt and topping with ATF.  No fire and no visual verification of fuel being drawn through the clear inlet fuel line.  Any ideas/tricks to prime the fuel system?
The second is a bit more baffling and worrisome.  I filled up the coolant and slowly been tracking down the leaks and tightening down clamps to fix.  Thought I had them all addressed, when I noticed another pool on the garage floor coming from the turbo/passenger side. 

It appears that the turbo is leaking coolant.  I don't think this is supposed to be a water cooled turbo. 

You can see the rust on the mild steel spacer between the turbo and the exhaust manifold and water dripping from the waste gate.  Any ideas on this one?  I'm really stumped as to where the leak could be coming from and how to fix it.  There is no coolant visible above the intake manifold, so I don't think its the freeze plugs in the head.  Thanks guys.  I keep thinking this thing is close to roaring to life.

Bought the car for 300$, actually very clean. GLS with black leather interior and sunroof. If I decide itís not worth the money to fix I can keep it as a parts car for my ALH. Itís the same color and has a couple similar motor parts (turbo, resivours, sensors etc).

I am going to try cleaning all contact points Tomorrow, as well as a fuel filter with new lines.  Iím going to keep my eye on the pulleys and make sure they are free and not holding back the SERP belt.
