Before I order a replacement engine, what are the chances of finding replacement diesel injection pump for an MD7B Volvo Penta

Nick, you have not said what is wrong with your pump. Unless the casting is cracked Injection pumps can be reconditioned/repaired & calibrated, just find a local diesel injection service centre.

Thanks for your advice David: proves to be very relevant. The engineer who guided me through the old pump's removal gave me the contacts of the company he uses. They told me it was irrepairable. I have since contacted another specialist who believe they can sort it and, if not, have a replacement already recoditioned. Thanks for the advice,
Nik

Hi Nik - I had a dead pump on the MD7B on Pennine Star (M27 also) and managed to get a seized up engine with a working pump. If it's any help, I could send you my old pump to have that assessed for resurrection.
Removal of the pump is simple as is timing the replacement although the space in the engine compartment is tight,

Hi Rod, Thank you so much for your generous and thoughtful response. It turns out I found a replacement through a firm in Sheffield who were extremly helpful and supportive as these pumps are very rare these days. They had a refurbished one in stock and proved to be extrenly knowledgable in all matters connected with diesel injection pumps & I would recommend anyone with diesel injection pump problems to contact these guys. They are

Thanks Rod very much for the offer but these people sorted me with what is a virtually new pump and great support.

David, Following my earlier note to say I had found a refurbished replacement I felt I ought to spread the word about the firm that sorted me out, so impressed was I with the service they gave and the knowledge they had on all matters of diesel injection pumps.
