I have not read your other thread. Did you perform a Diesel Purge on Her? : http://dieselgiant.com/injectorcleaning.htm

I consider this to be an absolutely essential maintenance step once a year. It makes a huge difference and keeps your injectors healthy.

There's no point in even starting this until you do a valve adjustment though. When you do it a couple of times it will become super easy. The best 1 hour tune-up you can get!

I got it running good, now it needs a fan clutch because it wants to run a little warm and maybe have the radiator cleaned as well. was driving it but the alternator stopped charging, going to fix it when I get the time.

New set of brushes for the alternate (regulator)? Can be done while in the car. 2 screws and the old one is out.

Always check the alternator bearings too. Cheap, but a little more involved to replace.

Hopefully she'll be a legal California girl soon.
