Hi

I've fitted a second hand engine and it runs at idle but operating the accelerator does nothing (yes the cable is connected and the arm on the fuel pump rotates). Is this an internal fuel pump or an electrical problem?

thanks for your help

Si

There are no electrics.

I didn't do the work but my ABL pump did this when my mechanic friend changed the spindle seals. We ended up getting the pump remanufactured which wasn't actually that expensive. It also improved the vans performance considerably.

I used Droitwich Diesel and would recommend them, but there are plenty off diesel specialists who can do this work.

The other thing to check is that you have the fuel lines connected the right way round, ie haven't got the inlet and return lines wrong. This is - apparantly - easily done.

This wasn't the problem with mine unfortunately.
