Re: Fuel Injector Pump leaking

The pump is pretty much dismantled and in pieces. Found 3 broken springs in 3 of the 4 chambers, and still have the head pieces of one of the plungers still up in the chamber, stuck. Will have to find tiny needle-nosed pliers to get a hold of it and try to pull it out (tweezers don't grab tight enough to get a good hold). Soaking in diesel now. Wanted to give update to those interested. Am thinking that if I can find the proper replacement springs, and if the head pieces of that stuck plunger are not damaged, and if I didn't score or scar the chamber walls removing the parts, and a few other "ifs", then I just might be able to put this thing back together and make it work. Any information on replacement parts or rebuild kits, etc. would certainly be welcome. Thanks.
