just bought a transit 280 td and traced a fuel leak coming from the back of the injector pump. i have eliminated the pipes, it seeems to be coming from the large module in the centre of the four pipes (cut off solenoid I think) stripped pipes off but stopped for some advice. Any
help would be great.

Hi

The valve you are talking about is the middle of the pump with the pipes fitted around it. It is the fuel control valve and is not repairable (isn't that always the way ). You will need the numbers of it to cross ref as they are different. Lsuk do sell them but thay are about £250/£300 new. might be best looking for 2nd hand but becareful as prone to leaking. There is a special tool to remove it as held in with castle like nut

Hope this helps

yes it can Is yours front wheel drive? If so not to bad to do remove intake manifold and it give you lots more room. If rear wheel drive can be done but pain in the arse and you could really do with the tool

sorry I'm not sure work on transits and been on courses so not sure if there is a site about it. you can turn the castle nut with punch and hammer but this can put a hole in the body so becareful if you do this to put the new one on. There are two black wire on the valve you can trace them back to the connector block, but I have cut them and joined the new one to the wires. If you do this try to start it before you put every thing back on if it wont start swap the wires as they are the wrong way round.
Hope this helps if you need any more info more than happy to help
