are there any early warning signs that the injector pump is on borrowed time?

If it's been turned more than 1 full it may go at any time, just a thought reading your sig. Dies suddenly when warm, will restart but then dies again. This will get worse until it just quits. Want keep the pump working for ever? Turn it back until it only smokes a little under full throtle.

The pumps are only rated for 100-150k miles before they need a rebuild. Mine wouldn't stop leaking at 170k so I finally pulled the trigger & replaced it. Gained alittle bit more power.

you guys ever heard of the moose pumps? if i am going to replace the injector pump i want to get a better than stock. i may also look at better injectors. are the "preformance" ones worth it for the long haul. i plan on keeping this truck for a good little while.

cat, i just read your post again. the motor is a jasper. i dont know if its just the block or if it was a complete engine. but the truck sat from 2001 untill just a few onths ago. i dont know if that has shot the seals inside the pump. i did turn the pump up a few.

i wanna say on my dads '92 7.3 we never did anything to the pump till after 230 thousand miles. dads pretty sure hes never had to have it worked on. He owned that pickup up till this last fall and owned it since i was 6 months old.

"Performance" anything on a IDI is kinda a joke. You can spend the money on a upgraded pump & injectors but still won't be a tire destroying monster. :evil

Stick with OEM, you'll save money & make "decent" power.
