Diesel Injection Pump Diaphragm Oil


See Figure 1

The oil in the injection pump diaphragm should be checked every 5,000 miles (8,000 km). To check the level, remove the filler plug located at the governor end of the pump and fill the reservoir to the plug level. The proper lubricant is cod liver oil or equivalent.
