Hi my name is ***** ***** hear you're having troubles with this machine. If you had no success replacing the lift pump, the problem is going to be at the input of your injection pump. The front shaft seals are known to leak into the front timing cover causing fuel in your crankcase oil. Remove your injection pumps to have it sent out to a fuel injection pump and then reinstall after rebuild and repair. It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.

one more question : could the fuel leak not come from a leaky injector ?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

In theory it is possible but highly unlikely. If you had an injector problem you would likely have a misfire as well as a fuel saturated exhaust port on that cylinder.
