I need to sort out a poorly Crossley diesel injection pump. I have 3
spare pump bodies at my disposal, one with the pump plunger seized in
place (don't yet know how badly), two with no plunger. The one on the
engine is leaking too much, presumably past the plunger, to reliably
develop injection pressure at starting speed.
I'm sure Crossleys won't want to know, so unless anyone has a pump
barrel & plunger in their back pocket for a BW1 we're stuck with
making one or getting one made.
It's a fairly simple affair, around 1/4" bore, no spiral grooves etc
like the CAV/Bosch type, otherwise I wouldn't even conteplate the job.
Does anyone have any suggestions about materials, heat treatment etc
etc? Know anyone who has done this sort of work or had it done?
