Do all of the fuel filter assemblies have springs in them? I wasn't sure if mine was missing or if it was a later revision of the housing where the spring isn't required. Also does anyone know what size the fuel hoses are? I was gonna replace them all.

I can't see any signs of a blown gasket. If it were blown, you'd know it. Blown between cylinders is almost a no-run situation, and blown to the water jacket would be pushing water out your radiator overflow like mad. More likely worn rings, accelerated by the diesel fuel in the oil. It causes the oil to be washed from the cylinder wall, providing poor lubrication to the rings.

I have a manual that states minimum compression for your engine. MINIMUM is 355psi, with max difference between cylinders of 71psi. None of your cylinders meet minimum compression specs I'm afraid.

Yes, the low compression will make for really hard starting, even in hot weather. If it were me, as much as I hate to say it, I'd re-ring it. The gaskets are high dollar, and I think it would just be wasting the new gasket not to re-ring it first. Gonna be costly, but worth it if you want to keep & use it. You already got your injector pump fixed.
