motor swap questions

please don't get too upset,but I'm using a 1982 123 5 cyl turbo diesel motor to upgrade my 1991 s-10 4x4. I have a few questions that my Chilton can't possibly answer. possibly because the guy who wrote it was a technical moron!! the only question it answered was "how much oil does it take?" My first Q: why won't my motor shut-off with the key? Q:How do I delete the level ride hydraulic pump? Q: what vac. lines do I not need and does anyone have a useable diagram? Q: what sensor connects to the front of the motor at the end of the exhaust man? Q: what sensor is connected to the exhaust top at rear of motor?

One thing of the time.
I drove the W123 years ago and don't remember much, but the engine had vacuum kill switch, while ignition had vacuum valve build on it.
I doubt you moved that vacuum switch to Chilton?
For the sensors, it would be much easier to be precise with pictures.
Hydraulic pump was on wagons, is that what you had as donor?
