The E relates to electronically controlled fuel pump whilst the earlier models had a mechanical one.

These cars give all sorts of problems and I wish there was some great big sounding board I could use to stop people buying them but unfortunately there isn't. I am afraid you will have to scour the Internet.

You could try these guys, they have a good name and give a warranty with their engines and may even deliver, I am not sure though,#

What you need to understand is that all these cars and engines are old. They were not a good design to start with (here I am talking about the mating of the diesel engine to the body) and therefore are fraught with issues not least of which is cracked cylinder heads although you seem to have topped this. Sounds like you either ran it low on oil, the oil pump failed or it could be your cam belt has stripped/snapped.
