Last night I noticed the injector pump on my '92 80 series (1HZ) had started to leak. Until now, never had any trouble with the pump seals, even when the low sulphur diesel was introduced a while back. Any idea of approx. cost to get the seals re-done?

With the low sulphur fuel being used now, it takes awhile for the seals to leak-just depends on how much vehicle usage. It took me about a hour to do both the shaft seal & top pump cover seal. Parts about $40.00 from memory. You better know what ya doing, as it is a fiddly job & easy to stuff up i.e. theres a small spring/damper that you can loose, mark the throttle lever/shaft when replacing the o-ring other wise if put back wrong the engine will rev sky high or wont idle. Also when puting the pump cover plate back on, be carefull that the high speed mixture screw is not sitting on top of the governor plate-it has to sit behind it. A Toyota Dealer also told me that the new seals are changed to suit the low sulpher fuel!

When low sulphur diesel came in I read about a slucs fund to fix problems like your. Do some searching and your should come up with it.

I had a leak in the injector pump on my Troopy - cost $80.00 to fix (got it done when I took it in to get the injectors serviced (Good timing). Over 100,000 Km furthur down the track and Ive had no more problems.

The offer by the oil companies has long expired ... Sorry.
I had mine done at the expense of Shell a couple of years back. They gave me $810 for the repair but Joe at Bendigo told be he got his done in WA for about $80 or less.
Good if you can do it yourself.
