possible 84 300TD turbo diesel owner

I have an opportunity to buy an 84 300 TD with the 5cylinder turbo diesel on the cheap. The deal might also include an 82 300 D with same motor and tranny. And all for $1500. I havent decided yet on whether or not Im interested in trying and keeping a parts car around or not.

Are there any major problems with these models and how interchangeable would the 82 be with the 84? The 84 is the only one currently running at the moment. I know that the 82 had bad motor mounts that lead to an oil line rupturing (my guess is an oil line to the turbo?) I dont know a whole lot about diesel engines but Im very interested in learning about them.
