Why the engine won't start--Aurora 41LN17

One of the areas I haven't been into yet--the injector pumps. One of them is bound up. Fortunately (or not) it seized up in the "Don't Run" position. As long as one pump needs service, I pulled the other two, for inspection and the injectors for inspection and cleaning. The pumps have about 5000 hrs on them, the injectors about 3000.

  1. Hello Ted,

    I am little confused here. On the pictures I see injectors. Do you call a "pump" each single injector?
    I thought that diesel engine has just one pump supplying semi-compressed fuel to each injector with preset sequence.
