Ahhh, so the clear stuff is diesel? If you decide on a so called specialist, if its not some one recommended from this site, here is what will happen...they will change the tandem pump all the lines and the injectors with new seals, your bill will be several thousand dollars. They will not change the flange and in 6 month you will have a coolant leak.

If I were you I would start with the TP, the coolant flange is right underneath the TP, you cannot miss it. There is a plastic pipe you will be removing to get to the TP its right above the TP, there is an area of this plastic pipe which is a little thicker than the rest, this is where you drill and tap for your boost gauge.
This is not a difficult job, only 4 bolts hold the TP, its a little daunting to get to them. Go for it!

The Pierburg pump should work just fine

I will take it to someone who is on the list here.

I can do it myself, but would prefer to have everything gone over. I want to see this car go the distance, it's already at 322 and has been well cared for its whole life.

Looking up "coolant flange" I find multiple different plastic pieces. Do you happen to have a link, to the correct unit?

Thank you.

Well I let it sit for almost 24 hours, with about 1/4 tank. It doesn't want to start again. I'm sure if I crank a few times it will fire again. Ordered the Tandem, hoping it's that and not injector seals.

Time will tell!

To be honest, I'd prefer injector seals over a tandem pump.

Injectors are a stand up fight, tandem pump is a bug hunt...
