They do make a rebuild
kit but it costs more than the pump.
They also make a new design of pump which costs $$$ (it is a Volvo
To get it to work
on the engine, you either need to buy the "specially formed" fuel pipe to get everything to hook up (fuel pump to fuel filter), or buy some pipe fittings so you can install fuel line hose.
The special fuel line costs nearly as much as the fuel pump
- ie $$$
You'll have to hunt around, but you can usually find used fuel pumps. They are all the same from the MD-7 thru the 2000 series of engines (2001, 2002, 2003). Early VW's used the same fuel pump
as the Volvo, but again getting hard to find.
Having a small 12vdc electric
fuel pump (as mentioned in another post) is another possibility. It's big advantage is that it will reprime the entire fuel system in less than a minute after changing fuel filters.
If you go electric
, make sure that you have a fuel filter
installed BEFORE the electric pump
to strain out junk. Plump the pump so it feeds into the original fuel filter
on the engine - helps keep even more junk out of the injectors.
You can use a cross reference chart and find non-Volvo fuel filters that will replace the Volvo filter on the engine. Much cheaper.
And wire it correctly so turning off the key kills the electric fuel pump in case of fire.
