Got a 1994 80 series cruiser (Turbo diesel) with a badly leaking injector pump - quoted $1500 - ouch - cause they say new additive in diesel fuel. Anybody heard of this before?
Thanks in anticipation.

Yes the new low sulphur fuels are the culpurt for the leaking injector pump. $1500 seams a lot to steep, mine cost me $600 if i removed it and fitted it again ($800 if they did it), also i had the injectors re-done at a cost of $60 each.

I wouldn't have thouhght the 1994 80 series would have been using rubber seals in the injector pump. Oh well, another pro for own a grey import, Jap Diesel has been low sulpher for ages! ;-)

I'm no expert but if they are only putting seals in your injector pump to stop it leaking and want to charge $1500, I would be going elsewhere.
I had a '92 diesel Hilux a few years ago that developed a fair old leak. Mechanic nephew, couple of seals and a couple of hours from memory, no more leak.
I think I would be wanting the pump overhauled completely for that sort of money.
Just stinks of the big shaft job.
Just my casual opinion.

G-day Mike,

Couple of years ago my 80 series (1HZ engine) started leaking fuel from the seal around the throttle shaft. Had about 270K at the time. Advised that the lack of sulphur in the new low sulpher fuel was the cause as it allows seals to harden & shrink.
At the time pump & injectors were fully overhauled at cost of $1200

mike,
for $1500, it would definatly be for a complete overhaul of the pump. [i.e new internals, D/V's etc].
have heard about people getting leaks fixed for about $200.
this is only the external seals on top cover, throttle shaft o'ring, new throttle shaft and advance plate seals.
i dont think any warranty or garantee is given on the work though.
