Hey everyone,

I am in a bit of a pickle with my 1992 Defender 110. My fuel injection pump is in bad shape and leaking like crazy. I reached out to Rimmerbros and they were able to find the part number (P/No ERR1333) but said that it is obsolete. Anyone got any ideas on where I can find either the replacement or a good used one?

Where is it leaking? On mine, I replaced the seal between the pump body and the distributor head using the seal kit from diesel geek and following their instructions. I did it without taking the pump off. It was fairly easy and I hadn’t done anything like that before.

Am of the opinion that you could fit a 300TDI IP onto a 200TDI engine.
You would need to set the timing according to the pump specs, but do not know of any reason preventing the swap.
Think the pop-off pressure for the injectors are the same.
So if you can't locate a 200TDI IP, you could try fitting one from a 300TDI.

I sent my pump to Blue Ridge Diesel but unfortunately, they felt it was beyond repair. Mine was producing metal shavings and fouling the fuel shut-off solenoid. I searched eBay and found Bob Becks in the UK. I contacted them directly and purchased one for about 400gbp. If you google the name with 200tdi you find their site. They were very easy to work with imo and im happy with the unit. I've probably put 4-5K miles on it and have no complaints, but as RD mentioned, I may need a timing adjustment as torque in 1st gear isn't ideal. The top end is strong and the truck will push 80 on flats with no little/wind.

Send your pump AND injectors (if your pump went to crap, so did everything else downstream) to Blue Ridge Diesel.


They are a VERY good Bosch mechanical injection shop and a friend to the rover community. I've worked with them on the industrial side. They literally have an entire room that is just a bunch of workbenches, with these injection pumps and injectors on them, getting rebuilt. Day in and day out. In the morning by the door is all the boxes of rebuilt pumps sitting there, ready for UPS to come get em.

Alternatively you can find a similar bosch diesel injection shop nearby you to do the work. Whichever. The local shop might be easier as you can have them do all the work right there. Look for anyone who does work on industrial diesels. Pretty much all Cummins engines (on road and off road) have Bosch injection systems. Same with a lot of DEUTZ and IVECO engines (Forget if Perkins/CAT used Bosch stuff). But Blue Ridge has a very good track record with rover diesel stuff.

And while all that is happening, clean out your fuel tank. I suspect it'll be rough in there. No use in having a nice fancy rebuild injection system when you pumping junk into it.

Rebuilding your FIP might be more economical than a new one. As above, if you find a reputable shop you can rebuild the FIP and get so much more life out of it. Did mine late last year and couldn’t be happier. Looked almost brand new.

Rebuilt high pressure injection pumps and injectors are common in industrial diesels. A rebuild high pressure injection pump and injectors, assuming you've got good core components, will be good as new.

You need to be careful with the choice of shop. Many do not know the correct specs and it ends up being a mess. Others charge more to rebuild than ones you can buy off the shelf.

Also, piggy backing off LR Max's earlier comments, fuel tank, fuel lines, fuel lift pump, fuel filter - I would flush / clean all of those if you can. I ended up just replacing the fuel tank altogether after flushing mine several times since corrosion was so prevalent. If you have extra time, might as well give the injectors some love too since you'll have about 1 - 2 weeks before the FIP gets back to you.

To Red90's point, I went with the injection specialists that GBR in Utah highly recommended. I know they rebuild FIPs from around the country so you can ship your FIP to them if you want, not sure the cost on that portion though. Certified Injection Service

All in all, having them rebuild saved me about $500 from buying a new unit.

I found a rebuild kit from Rovah farms. Does anyone know where I can find instructions on rebuilding the pump or a reasonable shop that can do it for me near San Diego california?

Quoting @Naplm00 from the other forum when I rebuilt mine, you’ll want to have it redone professionally as there is a requirement for extremely expensive metering equipment to finish the job.

Unfortunately, I’m not from San Diego so I don’t have too much feedback on the shop. If you don’t have a lot of luck, give CIS a call from above. They might have a bead on another shop or you could ship yours to them.

And then you still need a test bench to adjust it.
