:confusedDoes someone have a more detailed diagram of a 1996 E39 diesel injection pump? one better than the one on realoem.
Also does anybody know if it is possible to replace seals on these pumps?
i seem to have a leak coming from a small black box attached to the pump?!! think it supplys the electrical current:confused:confused
any help would be much appreciated
Thanks

Messing with a mechanical diesel pump is not wise unless you are a specialist as if you get it wrong the timing will be fooked:frown

You try and find details on these diesel engines. My pump went and I ended up getting a replacement engine as it was cheaper:thumbsup

it seems i may have the option of buying a used, but fully refubished injection pump at a reasonable price, is it a straight swap over? or is it going to be more complex?
You need special tools and you need to know what you are doing. Like I've already mentioned it's a specialist job. Not just a cse of unbolting the old and replacing it with the new.

i would not attempt to do it myself, as of the timing issues etc, but if i was able to buy a secondhand one, would it be a straight swapover for someone with the right tools? or does it have to be coded to the car etc etc? l

I believe it's programmed to the car as we did a engine change and the car didn't start, swapped pumps and away it went.

But I've also heard some people say they are not. :confused
