200tdi lift pump install

I searched but couldn't find anything on this, but how difficult is it to install a lift pump on a 200?

I haven't had to replace mine yet, but it does appear to be pretty straightforward. It's just a simple mechanical pump that mounts on the side of the engine block.

Four bolts - about 10 minutes. Probably need a new gasket along with the pump. You will be pushing up to a lobe on the camshaft, so if you need to you can rotate the crankshaft to make it go on easier.

Fuel Starvation for Idiots

So you guys were right, it was pretty simple to do the lift pump.

Kind of a funny story, I think anyway.

Had some loss off power issues this weekend, so I did some research. I originally figured that it was the fuel filter, since I had just done the conversion and all, after the research I thought it might be the Lift pump also.
Luckily I had ordered a lift pump and new filter and housing from George when I thought I had an issue a month ago(turned out it was just that the lines were backwards) so I never put them in, once it started I forgot all about them.
So today I put the new filter and housing, and the lift pump in. It was pretty simple, even got it bleed on my first try!
Took it for a test ride, seemed a little better, but not great. Popped the hood to make sure nothing was leaking and noticed in the corner of my eye that the waste gate had come undone, the little c-clip must of broke. I never even thought of this, but its all good, it all had to be done anyway.
The ? i was going to post was "loss of power, and the exhaust seems to be louder" Then I thought I was just being neurotic.
I guess thats why you always check the simple things first!
Just when I thought I was starting to know my truck

I know people always say diesels are simpler, but because I know 14CUX trucks inside out they are easier for ME to deal with (save the recent starter wire shorting on the heat shield killing ignition module issue ). Glad you got it sorted out.

Having rebuilt a 200tdi and a 300tdi now, I think the diesel is easier. And when the EMP blast comes, those of us without computers will still be driving Although I figured to where

Does anyone know what the 1/4 inch spacer is for that comes with the pump? I didn't need to use it, because the the old pump was the depth as the new one.

If you look at the block, there is a similar bulge corresponding to the location of the pump. My thought was that some blocks don't have that thickness and require the spacer to give you the correct distance from the pump to the cam.

Hi, I am going to replace my lift pump on my 200tdi discovery because I am having similar problems. I have a noob question. Do I need to drain the sump oil first or is the lift pump higher than the oil level?

Many thanks.

Many thanks for that extremely fast reply Sonoronos.

I was hoping that would be the case although it would have spurred me on to do an early oil change.
