    I have a buddy with a 01 cummings that is running a p pump but is having issues finding the sweet spot on the fuel delv to match his turbo and cam. I see yours is the 12 valve his is the 24 valve so it changes the animal some. His idle is wicked along with watching his whole truck rack from side to side.

    That my friend is the legendary "million mile" P-7100 fuel pump. Engine driven and completely mechanical. Here is what they look like on the inside:[​IMG]

    Only about $2500 and up unless you find a used one somewhere.

    I bought my Bosch-reman'd Ppump for $1600, which was a steal, IMO.. New, warrantied, turned up and ready to flow!

    VPs are the work of the devil. lol
    (that oughta get Mike worked up..)

    For the record, the star wheel access cap is the same thread diameter/pitch as an oxygen sensor. so if you ever screw up the cap screw, you can use a O2 test port plug to replace it.. I did on mine, just because it was a 19mm hex-bolt head, rather than an allen-style..

    stock plug on left, O2 bung plug on right..

    why i replaced it...

    Governor Spring assembly - broken down:

    governor spring access screw removed, exposing only access point to the spring assembly shown above:

    why it's sorta a pain in the ass to change:
