Default Distant Drums for Sale

My friend Charlie is selling the old bus. Its not running, my view is it needs the injection pump rebuilt, but if you follow our posts here we have had various problems over the years. She needs to go to a good home where someone has the time and the space to sort her out.

link to ebay here:

Any idea what it would cost to have someone come out and replace the injector pump?

About 8 hours in labor from start to finish and about $2800 - $3500 for a remanufactured injection pump. More if you have the Cat House do it.

Thanks birds, I am new to being a wannabe bluebird owner and don't have a lot of diesel experience. I almost had a gas powered bird nearby but procrastinated until I missed out. Oh well, the hunt continues.

If you can do the R&R the cost falls to around $700

Doesn't sound like a injection pump problem but a problem between the fuel tank and the injection pump? Could be one of several things many of us FC owners have had to deal with in the past. What did/does the Racor gauge show?

The ad states...ENGINE FUEL PUMP may need replacement (based on a sound coming from it).

Any thoughts on the "sound"?

Will the storage facility allow mechanical work?

Harbor City is 40 miles from my home.

Sorry for the new guy questions. Anyone have an idea how much it would cost to ship this bus to Houston Tx? Or what company to call and ask?

Since you would have to haul on a low trailer or tow behind a wrecker it would be very expensive. Figure 6 bucks per mile for a Landoll and about that for for a wrecker plus "Hook" fee. It would cost as much to move it to Houston as it would to buy it.

We encounter this problem over and over with a potential good buys becoming impractical because of transport costs.
