    Hi,
    Thought start fresh thread. Basically just trying to find out where best place to send FIP for repairs and if anyone had one done recently, where and price?

    So far got Diesel Jones, Diesel Bob and AP Diesels (nearest to me).

    Can anyone recommend whether they got full refurb done or parts that just failed.

    Looking at getting my original one done which has a leak and servo.

    Thanks.

    Diesel Jones claim to be a full refurb. You give them your old one. I swapped mine a few years ago and it has been perfect so far.

    For me at least, stripping and refurbing an injection pump is fairly easy. It's the £3000.00 calibration machine that is the drawback. :D:D

    There are many people that will do your pump to varying levels of intricacy. Reason I say ^^^ is because I’ve observed quite a few gone down different routes but that guy charges 1/2 the price of a europarts cheapy and I’ve not seen one person have an issue after.

    People come by now and again saying ‘I am Diesel specialist my RR won’t run’ when they find out it’s FIP they say they fixed it easily because that’s how good they are
    .... but when you ask how or okay do mine....
    they either disappear or start talking bollocks.

    Diesel Jones is the bloke to go to, i got my refurb from him and it has been fine. But as said refurbing a pump is easy if you know how, it's calibrating it that needs special tooling.

    I agree no point DIY a calibrated pump unless have proper equipment.

    He has just asked me for the part number for the pump it's missing off mine.

    Does anyone know it by any chance please?

    I got my refurb from a place in Scarborough. Cost me 1,200 fitted plus the old pump. Been a gem ever since.

    Fact your hasn’t got one is dodgy to start with.
    I can check on mine for you but no guarantee it’s the right one on there entirely as it didn’t come from ^^^,

    the boys will know when they get here
