guys you are awesome thanks for everything i need the car back on the road asap.
rebuilt seems very logical
but i need a pump faster then that.
what do you guys think of this one?

maybe later i can get a pump thats rebuilt and keep as spare.

From where you stand - nothing too much to lose.

Have read many times about the wonders of wax.
Mindfully and cautiously heat it up with heat gun or propane torch and rub a candles butt into it a few times.
Tink it with something good a few times-
then use an easy-out /or/ drive-in extraxtor tool to remove it.

Most times PB Blaster usually does the trick for me -
not had to go with wax yet. And i don't have any candles at the shop -yet.

PB Blast the remaining segment every hour or so and tink it with something good everytime - then heat - then use an easy out or extractor on it.

You "might" get a metal shaving in the pump - and you might have already gotten something into it - but its almost useless to you now anyhow like it sits - i'd go for it.

TDI pump head. Yes but No.
About 98% NO
Will bolt, probably run some, maybe sketchy at best without right injectors.
But its over your head and a waste of a more valuable pump. to be honest

if you can't get that piece out
i can look up a local'ish guy i know who had a couple/few 1.6 NA Pumps that he kept off running engines. He converts diesels to gassers.

I didn't even notice you had added some input in that re-quote.

But if you can get it that hot again - try shoving a candle into it/on to it.
Do that 2-3 times with heat - candle.

Then a left hand threaded easy-out (threads backwards [counterclockwise] into hole in the delivery valve) as it threads in it will lock inside and turn the delivery valve back out.

or-

a drive-in extractor tool - its like a 4 edged reamer you drive in with a hammer - then wrench it counterclockwise.

Just so happens i drove by where that guy had his shop yesterday, going somewhere else. The place is now vacant and for lease.
There is a NAPA right next door, they will probably know where he went.

Put a WANT TO BUY listing in parts section of NCdubs website.
Probably get some good leads or prospects there too.

How much for a broken pump that leaks?  Would you include the new O ring? 
Looking to add fender trim, LED lights and a bumper push to the truck soon.

Hi,
I know this is an old post but does anyone know if there is a tutorial of any kind showing how to replace the injection pump head seal (o-ring) without taking the pump off the car and not completely removing the pump head?

Thanks in advance for your help. :)

Sure, it was originally posted on this forum and then copied to the other linked address. 

http://vwdiesel.net/forum/index.php/topic,4353.msg34061.html#msg34061

That does not cover replacing the little boost enrichment o-ring which is a somewhat involved process if resealing an enrichment equipped pump.
