I'm heading to the scrapyard and going to grab some coolant glow plugs to fix my heat issue and was wondering what is different from the auto vs manual ALH systems that I should grab.

Injection pump for sure 11mm.
Injectors??
And anything else I should grab??

Anything you can get. I've never regreted having extra spare parts, even ones I've never had to use.
Injectors from the 11mm auto IP are smaller so no real advantage in taking/paying for those.

Injectors are handy to have in case you need a set built, you won't be down a car. Past that, maybe turbo/intake if they both look OK. Having a spare intake that's clean is nice.

Part of the 'system' on an 11mm car is the fuel cooler on the passenger side.
Why not grab that?

Get what you need, leave it for someone who needs it and dont horde parts, If you do grab the 11mm pump post it here for your cost plus 10% and buyer pays shipping, otherwise your a hording monster and the reason why i show up, the TDI's are stripped and usless when i need parts.

So his time to remove the pump, fuel to drive there, time to post the ad, and time to package/ship it are only worth 10%? Yeah right.

We’re all that’s left keeping these old rigs going. It makes no sense to leave the last of the oem parts rusting in the junk yard. Giving good deals here is not about money unless you want it to be. But then why vw? The Chinese manufacturing already has that angle cornered.

Ya if I leave stuff it get crushed. These scrap yards don't sit on the cars. In for a few weeks and then crushed no matter what is left on. Oddly a lot of mint MK4 coming in and are crushed very quickly. Depends how the guy is feeling and once in the back can't be bought or brought out. My kid and I were there one day and a mint MK2 came in and we bagged the guy to sell the car whole but he refused. I have never seen one so mint, like it was in a garage for 20 years and then just called the scrap yard to pick it up.

I would like to grab stock stuff to add to my 2003 manual ALH.. So what would the best parts be for an ALH.

-manual trans injectors
-auto injection pump 11mm
-fuel cooler

The fuel cooler add on isn't a bad thing for the really always warm/hot parts of the world. Probably not something most of us northern guys want/need but has some value to some.
Oil cooler is easy to remove and do on occasion fail.
EGR/ASV assembly.
Fans, AC compresssor, etc
I've always had quite a stockpile from various builds. Never pulled anything from the salvage yard except "complete" vehicle.

then just grab whole motors if the timing belt's still on there and they'll turn a full two revolutions

So are the 11mm systems have bigger injectors to match the pump??

They have smaller injectors with a bigger pump. A little odd, but that's the way they went.

I've asked the local pick a part place to sell me a whole ALH car for parts. They refused. They would rather crush it after it has been picked through.

Maybe ask them how much to pick the parts you want.
Or tell them you will let them have it back after your done.
If they do not have a title to the car they may not be able to sell it to you.
