I was afraid of that. Everything seemed positive when I saw the intermittent small spurts of fuel in all four clear hoses appearing equal when I cranked the engine over. Assumed it was more fuel being fed causing the high RPMs. Thinking the speed of the fuel feed to the injectors...It is just the pump being stuck. Probably time to get another pump.
Red you recommend just bolting on a different pump? I was under the impression a dial gauge should be used to set the pump timing. No?Changing out is easy. You might as well do the timing belt, tensioner and crank seals as the condition is not known. Once doing a timing belt, bolting in a new pump is just a few bolts. The belt work is a normal maintenance item and you just follow the manual.
The dial gauge is nice, but there is nothing wrong with the pin method that is in the workshop manual. The dial gauge method is a bit of a PITA on a Defender 200TDI because the oil filter housing needs to come off.Red you recommend just bolting on a different pump?

Then you need a timing tool kit. This holds the timing belt pully in place while you change the pump.Already have new timing belt & tensioner installed by UD. I have the manual & scanned timing instructions. I'll have them memorized before I get the new IP. Any advise on best place to order from?
If you go with Bob Beck be sure to contact them by email and get the no VAT price. It is less than $553.92.From memory, including the cost to ship mine to them I was all in for less than $600. When you ship it out be very clear when filling out the customs forms it is being sent for repair and return or they will hit you for import tax. Pack it tight, sealed in plastic, very well drained, and very secure in the smallest USPS flat rate box it will fit in. I am pretty sure it is their medium flat rate box.Thanks for the help Red90 & terryjm1. Ordered the timing tool kit. The range of pricing for this IP is crazy! $553.92 plus shipping for refurbished. New from $876.00 plus shipping to $4,153.33 (no joke). I also have a used IP from another 200tdi engine on a stand... Nah, I'll order new & send this one in for a refurbished one.
I swear I'm going to have two complete Land Rovers worth of parts before I get this back on the road!
Very good advice and I was at about the same experience level with this project as you when I did it. I have taken on that job one time and it went very smooth. If you carefully follow Doug’s directions and or the ROM, you will be good to go. It made me more confident in my actions to keep looking at the ROM as I worked each step.FWIW now that you have bought the tool kit. It contains a lock for the injection pump pulley. You remove the three bolt cover plate undo the three 10mm head bolts and bolt on the clamping ring. Then you can remove the nut on the end of the injection pump shaft and pull the pump only out, leaving the belt pulley engaged in the belt. This preserves cam belt timing and is the way the job is supposed to be done. Ie no need to open the front of the engine to remove pump. Changing the pump this way takes about an hour.
Not yet, I didn't want to ruin that "I might not be in over my head after all" feeling.Awesome, did you take it for a drive ?
