Update for AScheele and others:
Today I took the time to swap things around on the Injector Pressure Regulator, and I also tore apart and cleaned the fuel regulator mounted on the side of the filter housing, and pushed compressed air through the return line.
I am unsure which of these did the most help, or if it was a combined effort, but the truck now starts pretty good (got to crank just a little more than I like, but not to the point that it is what I would call it hard starting). When you get into the accelerator and let off it don't stall either.. Double bonus!
We went for a 7 mile joyride in the old girl, and the oil level is right where it was previously, so i think the fuel in oil problem is solved, but I do believe I in fact have a bad injector, as at an idle it has what can best be described as a "miss", so I guess the injectors will get pulled again and sent to be tested.

| Im glad its starting better for you. but before you jump into getting injectors removed and tested, make sure all the wiring harnesses under the valve covers are good. i had to replace all of mine, and two of the connectors on the main wiring harness when i first got it. |
