Universal M4-30 injector pump rebuild

After a time sitting my engine quit abruptly underway. Spent 30 hours sailing 40 miles in 0 - light wind. I bled the engine numerous times and changed all filters. HOWEVER. When I crack the fuel line to the injectors no fuel comes out. After much reading and my limited knowledge of engines I have concluded the injector pump is not pumping. Does this sound correct? If so I am wondering if anyone has gotten their injector pump rebuilt and wondering the cost and if it's fairly easy to take the pump off myself. I'm out cruising now and have limited time to be engineless without great hardship. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
