G'day all

Have noticed this afternoon that the injector pump on my TD42 has developed a small leak. Drips appear from the rear of the pump just underneath where the injector lines come out of the pump.

Is this a job that requires a service of the pump, or is there somewhere I should look for the leak? I've tightened every nut, bolt and screw I can see but still leaks at the same rate.

Any ideas of price? Anyone in the Pilbara (Karratha) know of the "best" place to go for this sort of work?

Cheers

Wayne

Hope you guys are pressing the fuel company for a refund of what it costs to fix.

BP paid to fix mine a couple of years ago- but I don't think they still do that.
Low sulphur diesel is actually better for you AND your TD42! Low sulphur means you can extend oil change intervals and your motor will probably last longer. (The excess Sulphur reacts with water vapour and forms sulphuric acid = internal corrosion of your donk = bad news)

brace yourself folks, since the changes to the formulation of diesel leaking pump seals is commonplace.thanks to the government for this one maybe we can claim it as a tax deduction.
