Maybe remove the brown "ring" and have 3 mm extra for the brushes:
New brushes: 2 euro
These outlast the dynamo said the enigeer, very hard brushes.
hardly ever replaces tem.
5 x 8x28mm
28.0 X 8.0 X 5.0
2 per set...
Glow-plugs or fuel air leak?
Glow plug is good to know time of replacement anyway (and to start maintenance record)
One bad plug has big impact on bad starting.
The test only shows bad or good, not inbetween so 6 new is best, now find out what it needs, many type used from 6 to 21 volt, see...
My LSPV was a problem for the apk road check but when I took it apart nothing was wrong, it is just a little movement, the iron arm was bend.
Now this year there was brake difference because the axle seal was leaking diff oil to the brake drum on one side, so while there always replace that...
If sound is not from a pulley, belt, fan or loose exhaust I would replace engine (seem to be cheap in the USA) or rebuild, not a nice job or fun news but postponing or ignoring is not an option.
Just park and support it safely and start the job but first be sure what it is and post a video?
I love splitrims because self repair and no need for shop, have to decide to buy new Michelin for them (dry rot cracks appear now) or go back to non split rims or 235/85x16
Changed about 25 of them so not a pro but getting better every try, now they are stuck for sure after some years so bush...
In Germany there was a kit for it, there a license plate can be changed and so boost economy and research (not in Netherlands...)
Also spoke to a mechanic that added AdBlue to old trucks, het said black smoke turns to white at startup. Maybe that is an option?
The filter can also wait until power drops, just have a filter and wrench ready (and advice new purge pump)
Water sedimenter is also good to have but company fuel should be good quality.
You can add acetone for less engine noise and bit of improved torque and lower fuel usage.
If your fuel tank...
Buy a regular freeze plug at a dealer and should seal perfectly if that hole has no damage.
This thing does not belong there I think, you can also install a block heater but that is not best position.
Example for my HJ60...
I have 2x Bilstein Heavy Duty (B6 4600) B46-0256 / 24-002561 and maybe wrong ordered (just checked again, no wrong order) or old stock broken but they are so soft that the car has a lot of more roll (lean?) in corners than it had.
I though sway-bar had come loose or something, the old ones...
A kit is for sale and the picture has some part number info, but how do I know if I have HJ60 2H piston 102,2 mm or 90,1mm?
kit for sale mentions:
13101-68010 (with above picture that is 102.2mm (?) OLD?
Both have 91.0 mm bore (diameter)
When I search for the part number also for...
If the rear door closes without funny gaps or scratch marks it should be no problem?
Maybe use a forklift to push it back, better to remove tank and stuff to be sure what is happening.
It should look like this:
No idea how to get a bump there, remove wheel, cross bar, tank?
Somewhere it is explained but I cant find it on mud, (my) repair with helicoil 12x1.25 below in link.

The seller must realize nobody will take this for that price so you might wait and see when price drops, it is all typical rust and done before, many times.
You can talk about it for days or just get the grinder out and cut it out, replace with 1.25mm metal, 3 to 4 mm for chassis, fluxcore...
