called and gave the number of Dumas Diesel
. They quoted me $450 to rebuild
the pump. I'm seriously considering it. My mechanic
suggested the leak was coming from the banjo bolts, and thought that replacing the washers would be fine. The washers are aluminum
and he thinks they are the wrong washers, and that someone replaced them before with the wrong ones. There has been a bit of a leak since I bought the boat.
Obviously that would be a cheaper fix, but if we put it back together, and it still leaks
, I have to pay to repeat the whole job. He's already started to remove the injector lines to get access, so there are more washers to replace and completely removing all of that, plus a battery
, disconnecting the throttle bracket, etc. is time consuming to do over again if the washers don't work.
My concern is, that I have read a lot about people having problems indexing the pump afterwards, and that the timing or firing order can be a real PITA if the fuel pump
shaft is turned during rebuild. OTOH, the shop told me that there is only one way the pump can fit to reinstall. They say that it's only if you take the engine
apart that there is a timing issue to worry about. That seems to contradict what I've read. Before I decide to remove the pump and pay the dough to rebuild, can anyone verify that the shop is correct? I really don't want to open a can of worms by removing the pump unless the shop is right. If it's a simple reinstall, then I think it's worth it.
