HPOP leaking- do i need a new one?

so my HPOP was leaking and i had a place look at it and they said they found one of the lines wasnt tight and they fixed it $40 no prob. 6mos later it has been leaking again. called a diesel specialty shop and they said if it leaks anywhere then i need a new one because if the put new o-rings they cant prime it with oil again and it would never start again. so how does a new one get primed with oil when they put it on???? doesnt sound right to me. please chime in thanks J

Unless its the pump itself leaking You can replace the gasket on the front no problem. Or it could be you need new lines ?

That is not true. You can replace every seal, even the one that says "Do Not Remove". You can get every seal here. High Pressure Oil Pump Repair Parts

I don't doubt that. I just don't want to get stranded on the side of the road out of province with a load of livestock or horses. I guess each there own

Re: HPOP leaking- do i need a new one?

I would check out dieselorings.com

Just about every hpop oring and gasket you would need plus links to directions and writeups.

I pulled mine about a year ago and replaced all orings due to leaks and never had a problem. Almost all of it can be done yourself with basic mechanical knowledge.

I did mine a month ago and replaced the non-serviceable plug and all is good!

j350...i'd run from that mechanic. Wether you replace the hpop, lines or fittings, the system will purge itself, once fired up....
