What are the best years for wvo conversion after 1986? I've heard I can go up to about 1999. Is this correct?

Some of the models have injection pumps that use only copper crush washers to seal the delivery valves. No rubber "O" rings to get eaten up by the WVO. I do not know a list which models but I have read my 84 300D dose not have the "O" rings in the IP.
I believe the one after 86 have the IP "O" rings and some need a special splined socket in order to change them.

I hear the Chevrolet Chevette Diesel is a good platform for a WVO conversion. The GM 5.7 Diesels are good for WVO too!
