OEM 2.5NA injectors/IP

Quick Question/Confirmation: Was Lucas the original equipment manufacturer of the early 2.5NA fuel injectors and Injection Pumps?

The injection system is from CAV. Model DPS. They were owned by Lucas. All now part of TRW.

Clay, is that what Carlos diagnosed...the injectors were the issue?

Also, I have a guy that will renozzle injectors for cheap (you just need to supply the injectors, and he'll do it for like $40).

Yeah, we took a spin during HH and he felt it sounded more like a dirty injector. He recommended Scot at United Diesel. Spoke to Scot yesterday; who is a great guy btw. Thinking of doing a review of the whole 32 year old fuel system.

Yep, Scott is a good dude....his shop is (literally) a mile from my place. Let me know when you're heading over there and I'll swing by.

arent there aftermarket hanging around for not a whole lot more than that?

are not these they?

also.. where would I find a list of cross reference parts. I am fairly certain land rover engineered nearly nothing.

I've found that the mercedes glow plugs are the same as mine. The injectors and injector system are similar, but not likely to have interchangable parts.

Maybe for NA or TD (admittedly not my forte), but Tdi injectors are north of $600-800 for a set of 4 now I believe. Just the nozzles themselves are $250+.

Maybe for some off-brand you could pick them up cheaper, but I'm talking Bosch here (which frankly, in my opinion, is the only way to go).

Bosch TDI nozzles are pretty cheap. Maybe $200 for a set of 4.

For the NA complete new injectors are $30 each.

Oh.. yea.. na don't do bosch.

Got to make sure you're not getting the junk with the land rover logo. That's worth, in my actual experience with random part shopping recently, worth about a 600% premium.

Now, of course, the 600% more expensive parts are always in stock... not always the same for the real world stuff.

And its frankly a pearls before swine scenario. In general, rover stuff is not exactly something I'd call quality.

The whole design is was made for a Massey Ferguson tractor, eventually adapted for road use on a car....keep in mind the original idea of a rover was to be the farm tractor and grocery getter for struggling farmers post ww2.. Thus the tractor diesel engine in a car..
