2. Is 1k too much?

Depends what parts you need. The OM621 engine is ok, dependable but not even as fast as a W123 240D. Some parts are expensive and people often forget to change the oil in the IP.

Hard to find junkyard parts for them. I have several of these cars plus additional patrts cars so parts are not an issue for me.

Definitely get the OM 621 diesel engine manual.
