Ok managed to get a bit further but I'm a bit stumped as there doesn't appear to be really anything (apart from all the diesel in the pump spilling out) to seal it......

yes there's an o ring but it's flush as you can see.... do you think it's just a case of tightening the screws a tad more? Locktight ?

As a temporary fix, degrease and a smear of silicon.

Also could try turning the o ring round, so the flat part is in the round groove?

I'm not sure I can actually get to the O ring without damaging it? It's in there good and proper. 

Would a smidge of RTV do?

looks slightly perished.....  now to find a new one. 

 

So after it all goes back together, what do I need to do regarding all the diesel missing from the pump ?

I suspect that o ring has become flattened after 30 years or so of service, time to change it.

Yep - what Mo says. A new o ring and then tighten up and I reckon that will be fine

Ok guys, new o ring in, plate back on. Now how to re fill the pump? Is there a bleed nipple ? Sorry never done any of this kinda work before 😬

You've got the bleed screw labelled in the pic you put up on the last page. Crack it open and get someone to crank over until there is no air coming out. Then you can bleed to the injectors by cracking them off whilst someone cranks - you may not need to do this if it starts after bleeding the pump.

Success !! Off for a test drive now. I looked over white90's post about replacing the fuel filter. Opened up the air bleed nipple and pumped with the lift pump until fuel came out and did it back up. One turn and Doug fired up. Been running for 10 mins now with no drip. 

 

I'll go for a spin and see how it is. :-)

Good job. My front swivel is leaking more than your injector pump today. Going to have to take the BMW today :(

That's the thing about Land rovers if you fix one leak it will just come out somewhere else, I have a big bit of old carpet under the parking spot in my garage it's been there a couple of years so maybe time to find a new bit of old carpet.

Two good runs done and all is well. It's actually strange not seeing a wet patch under it when I'm stopped now. There's still the leaking rear crankshaft seal to keep me happy though 😂👍
