When doing a service on Lorry the other week I found that the fuel primer pump on the injector pump was having a little squirt on a regular basis. A couple of years back I replaced this primmer with a new one of German decent which has failed. The old one has only done around 1500 klm and unfortunately had to go. So I ordered and have just now installed and checked it for leaks and all is good.
Apart from Mercedes trucks when did Germany start making crappy parts?
Lets see if that gets a bite!
I found that a pin that holds the priming cap onto the plunger had worked loose and fell out in my hand. There is a standard "O" ring that the cap is screwed against to make the seal so a new "O" ring was fitted and a new pin was fashioned and installed with locktite. So now this should make for a spare when I need it in ten years or so.
