I'm thinking of buying an 85 300D. They say that the oil pump and turbo need to be replaced. Is this hard to do? Is it something a mechanically inclined novice can accomplish?
Would like to then convert to BioFuel. They are asking $500. Going to take our first look at it today. What are some good questions to ask for a follow up? Will check back later.

Everyone I know who's done this has just swapped the complete 360 pump in and not had oil pressure issues. I've not had them both in pieces to look, so I hadn't considered there may be internal differences stopping you building a 'hybrid'.
