Well first it takes 3 special Cat tools to remove the pump and set it up for re-install.
Second, the pumps may not be the problem, if that is the case then money
spent on rebuild
will be wasted, and you will still have the same problem.
Have you removed the stop solenoid, then bleed the engine
, and see if she runs? You have to have the pump in the run position to properly bleed it. When the pump is bled and no air, you need to bleed each injector line.

If we can pull them, send them off for rebuild and then have difficulties getting all ok when they are send back, then we can pay a little less and hopefully get someone to come from Jacksonville
