    Default Vacuum Pump Repair Kits - 300Tdi

    Hi All

    Good news! We have sorted out the shortage of these popular repair kits, which cure the oil leaks in the vacuum pump once and for all time.

    The kit consists of a non-standard size welch plug which replaces the flimsy bottom one on these pumps, as well as 6 special bolt and metal lock nuts, which keep the pump cover on tight for good.

    Gone are the days when one got stuck with a badly leaking pump due to the rivets sheared off or the bottom welch plug that popped out.

    If you are in need, send me a pm with your email address.



    The original welch plug with a very flimsy sealing area, guaranteed to leak over time.



    And the special deep cup type one, which I have drawn specially for the Wabco pump.

    Paid R 50.00 for mine, about a year ago, did the mod and no more leaking past the plug.

    My pump is a bit noisy, is it time for a new one or is there some way to fix it?

    What vacuum pump is used in the D1 V8 to operate the cruise control? Mine is kaput and want to restore this functionality, is this the same?

    Nope, the V8 uses an electrical vacuum pump. I recon you could "repair" the cruise control pump by making a vacuum reservoir using a one way valve (same as what goes to the brake booster) and then feeding this vacuum to the valves on the old electrical pump. This would eliminate the electrical pump part of that unit. Never done it though.
