TL2 fuel pump
« on: September 03, 2020, 09:44:42 PM »
put a new fuel pump in turned the engine over about twice and one of the fuel pump hold down bolts snapped right off. then i took the pump out and the
spring loaded shaft snapped in two. got my magnet and nothing was in the whole except the insert and the tappet. i pulled the insert out but, did not look if the
raised center was up or down. but, i know i put it raised center up.have not taken tappet out yet.any clue what it could be?now i wonder if the roller and bushing are shot!
next time i will turn it over by hand. any help is appreciated.

                                                                                  thanks, chef

I'm confused as to the problem. Are you able to post a clear pic of the problem please?

i tried today with another pump bolted in shimmed.but when i go to tighten down the fuel pump nut .the nut in the center where one end goes to the injector pipe the other goes to the pump body
if i tighten it and turn the flywheel slowly the pump shaft stops the rotation and bottoms out. if i loosen the fuel pump nut 2 turns the fuel pump goes up and down fine.i know the screw on the face just below the
fuel inlet banjo bolt. well, is that bolt on the face of the pump suppose to ride in a groove?i took it out and watched with a light thru that hole and could not see a channel or groove while turning the flywheel
will take some pics

Again a picture is worth a thousand words. But sounds as if there is something in the hole where you are bolting the pump onto.
