Thanks guys for all your help. I replaced the intake and crossover gaskets this weekend and everything seems tight and dry. I was amazed though at how much carbon goo had built up on the intakes. I spent hours scraping and cleaning as much of it off as I could. Unlike gas engines where the fuel mixture running in the intakes helps keep all that clean, I realize there is nothing on a diesel to help clean this out. I guess I either disconnect the EGR or plan on doing this cleaning job once in a while. Thanks again for your help.
