fuel pump swap 1987 di / turbo engine with mechanical pump

Postby martin lewis » Thu Apr 19, 2007 5:35 pm

any ideas ? my 87 di has a cav pump and early injectors , i have been given a new 96/7 cav pump but it is designed to work with slim type injectors , it is identical apart from the fuel pipe outlets meaning no 1 cylinder outlet is in the wrong place . does anyone know if any other di fuel pipes will fit , my other thought is to move the timing round 90 deg, any thoughts appreciated . also has anyone fitted a turbo engine with a mechanical pump and still have full power , just an idea as i might convert mine,

:shock: Put some pictures up :idea:

We'll soon be able to tell you what pumps you have :wink:

As gemini said, the only Lucas pumps fitted from '95 were the fully electronically controlled EPIC ones that have a large 15 to 20 pin multiplug connector on the back :wink:

cav pump

Postby martin lewis » Fri Apr 20, 2007 11:51 am

i have found more info on the cav pump it is off an Ldv DI engine on a 'r' no plate it seems ldv carried on using the cav pump with the late type injectors, i have a friend with a 1990 lwb 190 which has the early pump and late injectors , i have checked the outlet positions and they are also 90deg out compared to the 1987 pump . i know the turbo only came with epic but i am thinking about fitting a turbo unit to my van and i would like to ditch the electronics , i know the Bosch mechanical pump will fit but will the power output remain OK any thoughts appreciated PS thanks for the replies
