after changing the "glowplugs" today i have now had the fun of fuel ing all over the road. checked to see if i had disturbed a fuel line or suchlike, only to discover the top seal on the fuel injector pump has blown :eek::eek::eek::eek:. i havent even gone anywhere near it with a spanner wtf. i now have a van stuck on the road and nowhere to put it. if there is anyone out in poole who knows for a pump i can get reconditioned and a reasonable garage who will change the pump.

please help

i am about to just say f**K it and buy a ford


the van is an early k plate

engine number 3
puel pump soon to be number 3
alternator number 5

and only 20k done in the last 2 years

now you can feel my pain

i'm going back to t2's at least you can repair them on the side of the road with a piece of elastic and some chewing gum
