Ok, I am considering buying a new pump as it sounds like mine is probably spent, it is leaking out the aneroid vent at least. I was told $800 or so at my local injection specialist shop. I have no engine tag and have had no luck finding the number from the PO so Cummins won't talk to me. Any suggestions? I live in Southern Oregon. TIA, Kief.

Since you have no engine tag, your best bet is to pull the pump and take it to a Diesel injection shop. All they look at is the serno and id tag on the pump. You could also use someone else's engine serno if your certin the cpl's match.

Buy the Bosch VE seal kit for $18.00 +/- and give it a shot first. Bosch P/N DGK-121. Any authorized Bosch service shop should have it.

I have seen on here that many seem to change out the easy seals but have been warned by others not to mess with my pump... I know people adjust the fuel all the time. Any links to a good dissassembly/reassembly guide?
Should I put in a pyrometer just for good measure if I am working on the pump?

I don't even know my CPL number, the back of the block had absolutely nothing on it.
If I post up pump and turbo #'s would that determine my CPL configuration?

Here is an excellent link that has been converted to English, good stuff too...

You could put a pyro on it if you turn up the full load fuel screw. I would install one pre-turbo regardless, cheap insurance IMO.

good link

I didn't read the whole link but like the part where he said he has rebuilt four and they are running perfect but the first two... He learned a lot.

There are differences in the pump that he has there and what most of the "on road" Cummins VE would have. The AFC top is not on his pump, VW must not have used it. Aneroid Fuel Control or AFC, search my posts and there is a bit on it somewheres here. Or go on over to the TDR and check the stickies/FAQ etc. I am not 100% positive but I believe the gov' spring section there is different too. I would try a reseal myself before I payed overinflated pump shop prices, the local here is double what you can find on the WWW. Digital pics would be a must and if you need a part I would have P/N in hand when talking to these hacks...

lost me..

Are you saying that if I am to deal with someone via the internet I should be armed with pictures and serial numbers as they don't know what I really need?

No... I am saying I would take pics if I tear into a project I am not completely familiar with. And have part numbers if you go to buy parts from an Injection Pump Shop. It has been my experience that they can be real pricks if they think you don't know what your taking about... Using the P/N I ask for price and availability, assertively. I am not asking, I am telling if you know what I mean. Politely. Not to stir it up or be a jerk, just want what I want without the run around.

I apologize for the confusion, after reading what I posted there it was certainly not clear.

Gotcha..

I know in the injection shops it is by the book. A lot of liability on their part of course.

If it is only leaking at the aneroid vent why not just install a new seal on the aneroid pin. It is no harder to change then if you were to install a 3200 gov spring, then maybe while you have the pump top off you could install the gov spring if you have not already. You should be able to find a part number on one of the many dodge forums for seal also.

I might try that, haven't had the time to chase all the info down. I think I may try that. As long as I don't screw anything major up! I saw a nice write up somewhere about someone pulling a VE pump apart and he was very methodical about how he took it apart.
I am probably due for new injectors too. Anyone recommend a source for those? They were about $50 each around here.

Are the seals in this kit viton? What were the original seals made from? I am curious about the issues with biodiesel (B100).

I do not think they are Viton, I have an aftermarket Seal Kit I picked up off Ebay and a Genuine Bosch also and the color of the seals is different than the Viton O-ring Seals I have seen. I could be wrong though. Call your local Authorized Bosch Service place and ask.
