Leaking fuel pump on caseih 1494

Post by eddiem » Sat Dec 03, 2011 9:11 pm

The CAV diesel pump is leaking on my caseih 1494 from the gasket at the top of the pump between the top housing and the main pump body.

Is there any way of tightening down this housing as it only weeping slightly atm so before it gets worse if i could tighten down this housing maybe it might stop the leak- but i cant see how this top housing is bolted to the rest of the diesel pump.

Thanks for any help on this.

To replace the gasket you have to remove the throttle and stop control rods/cables and then remove the nuts under them ten remove the dirt excluder cups under the nuts. There is a compressed fibre cotton 'washer' under these, don't loose them. You then have to remove the domed nuts of which on most pumps have a twisted wire and seal inserted through them. You can't however just lift off the cover as the gate spring is attached to a peg under the top of it, you have to remove the spring from the cate cam lever but observe which hole in the lever the spring is attached as there are several holes. Oce you have the top off you can then remove the old gasket which is around 1.5mm in thickness and made of a fibre material, same as what fibre washers are made of, you will probably need to source one of these from a diesel specialist.

I replaced the gasket but the pump was still leaking - it turned out it was leaking from the throttle shaft.
I fitted a new throttle shaft and no more leaks. :)
