Since you're going to have the cooling system apart anyways, you may as well replace the lower rad hose and any other hoses below the injection pump since it looks like it's leaking and diesel loves to eat coolant hoses.

If you can find somewhere with a hot pressure washer it will have your engine looking great in minutes. Whenever I'm washing my engine I just avoid the alternator with direct spray. I figure if I wreck anything with the pressure washer it was about to go anyways and I'd rather it go at home then on the road. So far I haven't wrecked anything with it. The key of course is to keep the pressure low enough to not blow brittle plastic apart. I find it easiest to adjust by moving the wand further away from the engine.
I buy core TDI pumps. PM me for details
