I was about to remove the scavenger valve but thaught I should get more info first.
What is the function of the scavenger valve?
What sticks that would cause fuel to be in the lubrication oil?
Finaly what do I need to do to it to ensure this is not the problem?
Thanks again for the help! Hope to put her to work this weekend!

The plunger # 19 sticks in the open position, the spring is suposed to push it home to close off the fuel from the tank when engine not running.
The screen (#20) at the base of the plunger (#19) also acts as a seat , if this screen gets plugged it can also cause diesel fuel to get into base of injection pump.

What is the proper method of removing all the inner workings?

Does the screen #20 normally come out as well? I tried to use a suction hose but no luck. I can't even see in there to know if there is actually a screen but it does feel like it when I insert a dental pick and lightly scape the end of the openning.
I also found that mine is slightly different in that my #19 does not have the smaller diameter end but rather is the same diameter from end to end and shorter aprox by the length of the smaller diameter piece. Is this simply a different type or am I missing part of a part?
