Bosch Inj Pump Rebuilder Recommendation?

Diagnostics seem to be pointing to a faulty injection pump on our Universal 5144, here on St. Croix. Nobody on-island is really qualified to do a rebuild, so looking for any recommendations for a stateside shop. So far I've been directed to RPM in Ft. Lauderdale....anybody else have good/bad luck with them or another rebuilder? Thanks

Just about any semi truck repair facility and cheaper than marine shop and I'm sure they do many more rebuilds than a boat place.

I think that's a Kubota motor. If it is, you could buy new ones from a tractor parts supply place for less than it would cost to rebuild the old ones.

Re: Bosch Inj Pump Rebuilder Recommendation?

Thanks, I'm ideally looking for an actual injection shop (RPM in Ft Laud has been recommended), not a marine or truck shop, my understanding is that injection pump rebuilds are best left to folks who do lots of them, have the right tools, etc. Good point re: it being a Kubota, as it is indeed a Kubota V-1902 base engine, so maybe a new pump is worth looking for.

I just had the injection pump on My Universal 5411 (Kubota Z500) rebuilt at a local diesel injection shop. Cost was $198, the cheapest replacement could find online from tractor shops was $433 plus shipping. Marine dealer price (Torreson) was over $1200. Lead time wouldn't have been much different, they only took 2 days to do the job. I would definitely go with a rebuild.

I always look on E bay first. Needed injector nozzles for the 5411as well, found brand new replacements there for $45 each inc shipping, local Kubota dealer was $71, Torreson wanted $401. Had the injector shop check the nozzles when they did the pump, found they were the real deal and good to use.
