I'll be paying close attention as this is a task in my immediate future......thanks again Rick!After a week on the car crusher I have the time to get the injection pump removed from my M1009 project. I am going to do a picture tutorial for those that may need to do this task. It is very easy and does not require any special tools except a think 15MM open wrench. I will post pictures later and want to see if I can do better on my time for removal. Thank you.
I've been driving my 1028 Wrecker for over a year now. It must have been sitting for 15 years and from what I could gather in paperwork it is closer to 20. After reading your posts here I'm going to replace my injection pump as well. I'm pulling the pump and lines from a spare 6.2 out back. It came out if my M1008. I'll exchange the pump with the outfit you mentioned and clean up these old lines. Maybe I'll splurge and get some remanufactured injectors too. Thanks for sharing what you do with us.After getting the injection pump off the engine the problem was crystal clear. View attachment 799312After setting for 10 years and getting run from time to time the inside of the injection pump was corroded. After my maiden voyage the pump was greeted with high pressure fuel and it loosed all the particulates and set them freely thru out the injection pump. View attachment 799313View attachment 799314Thus the stalling and poor acceleration. I barely made it back into the garage. I have a spare pump core just for this. I removed the lines 1 set at a time and placed them loosely on the core pump as to keep everything in alignment and no guess work or struggle. It really isn't tat hard they only fit one way but I like it for speed of reassembly. View attachment 799315View attachment 799316The old stripped pump clamped in the vise and ready to be returned. Under the hood is now a barren cavern. View attachment 799317 Even after draining the injection pump the dirt and crud is obviousView attachment 799318I have everything set out on a stand and will clean and inspect each piece before and during reassembly. Take Care and Be Safe. It snowed here this AM. Really. Like the world is not weird enough at this time. Thank you for looking and the positive support.
