Inj pump rebuild or exchange?

So what's more cost effective? Should I send out the pump to Blue Riidge for refurb or should I buy new from one of the UK suppliers? They all sell the pump for roughly 700 pounds.

Bill there were a few suppliers in UK who have new mechanical Disco 300TDI pumps under 600 quid.

I'd go with Blue Ridge but I know the guys and Richard in the injection shop would bend over backwards to make it better than new. He and Elton are the shiz.
$850 for new.....

x2 re Richard and Elton.

In a recent discussion Elton's opinion was they don't see rotary pumps like ours go bad very often. But that nasty injectors will put undue pressure on the IP seals and cause problemos you'd like to avoid.

Leave room in u'r budget for injector testing and, rebuilding if necessary. BR can turn them around pretty quickly.

I have a spare set of good Bosch nozzles if you need to save a few bucks.

Just get your injectors professionally rebuilt and don't waste time or money testing. The nozzles have a limited life. 100,000 miles is about as far as anyone should run a set.

Mr. Davis is now offering the service at a good price. Make sure whoever you use has the proper equipment and knowledge to set the pilot and main pressures. They should all be balanced as a set.

Testing costs about $10/each at BR.

When I called blue ridge about 3 months ago I was quoted $1k for a rebuild so I went with one from the UK.

Metro fuel injection / Midwest fuel injection in Mass has rebuilt many 200tdi IP pumps, I believe $900ish. And I've sent a Perkins motor IP to the one in Deep River, CT. Good results. I believe Brandon sent his injectors to them and had them rebuilt with him suppling nozzles for $25 each. You can mail them the pumps, and they will mail them back.

New, tested injectors already in hand courtesy of rdavisinva. Rebuild here in the USA seems waaay more than buying one from the UK. Looks like that's gonna have to be the plan....
Thanks all.
