Hi All.

Following on from one of my latest topic posts here: VP30 metering solenoid info required

It has now been confirmed that the Bosch VP30 Pump / PSG5 ECU, had failed.

So once again I go back onto eBay and buy the following item: ROVER 45 2002 2.0L TURBO DIESEL FUEL PUMP BOSCH 0470004005

The ebay ad reads as the following.

FUEL PUMP BOSCH 0470004005

THIS PART FITS ROVER 45 MODEL

THIS IS USED PART SO PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE MIGHT BE SOME SIGNS OF WEAR SUCH AS SOME COSMETIC SURFACE SCRATCHES.

WE TRY TO PROVIDE AS CLEAR PICTURES AS POSSIBLE TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE HAPPY WITH YOUR PURCHASE.

THIS PART IS IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION.​
The item has now turned up, but the seller or who ever removed the pump from the vehicle has undone the center nut, and the timing pulley is lose on the shaft.

The pump was not locked, so this means that the timing of the pump has now been lost, and in my eyes this pump is useless, unless I use it as a door stop.

Now thinking about it I should of asked the seller if the center nut had been undone and or if the main timing pulley had been removed, But as I am in a rush to get the car back on the road, and the item was listed as "IN GOOD WORKING CONDITION" I did not think about it.

So I have two questions.

(1) Would you say this item has been miss sold, and if so do you think it would be acceptable to ask for a full or part refund on this item.

(2) Is it possible to reset the timing of the pump and pulley, or would this now need to be sent to a Bosch dealer to get re-timed.

Thanks again for your time.

Best Regards.

1) Difficult to say. Worth a punt as Ebay usually side with the buyer - but strictly speaking the advert isn't wrong.

2). Yes there is usually a witness mark on the shaft where the pulley woodruff key slot is so you can usually get them pretty close by eye. A proper bosch agent or diesel specialist would be able to do it too of course.

Any idea on what the likely costs would be to have this Bosch V30 Pump re-timed by a Bosch dealer/agent?

Thanks again for your time

Best Regards

Sorry no idea. Worth ringing you local one to ask as it'll be a job they have done frequently I'm sure!

Unless I am extremely lucky I did the following as some idoit kid I had helping me had fun turning the nut on the gear face to feel How hard it was to turn.
As far as I am aware the VP 30 does not need timing. The taper shaft will not take the gear the wrong way. Find the 10mm hole on the gear face fit shank of 10mm drill in hole. Turn the rotor until the 10 mm pin slot into the hole of the pump body.

The hole lines with injector 1. which injects just before TDC. Now set the timing using the 10mm head cam shaft gear bolts.

Be sure that you have timed your flywheel lock pin to the camshaft gear correctly. The hole for this tool is just above the crank sensor at the back of the motor. You will need an assistant to do push the lock pin into place while you manually turn the engine

Some I forgot to mention. The pump location hole for the pin has to be vertical. I battled with timing at one point as the pin went in BUT it was on the side recess of the pump housing. The exact depth of the of the pin to locate correctly should be in the region of some 60mm. The only way to test if you have the correct location is to use a 15 mm socket. Wiggle it back and forth. There should be no movement if the pin is located correctly. If the Pif gear moves your pump timing is out.
