Thumbs up Replacing your CP3 - DIY

This DIY pertains to replacing the CP3 injection pump on a Common Rail 5.9. It's a fairly simple process, but some folks think it's a bigger deal than it really is.

Early CR's (03-04) will have an aditional step of removing the kickdown bracket for the TV cable going to the transmission as it interferes with removing the CP3.

WARNING! Cleanliness CAN NOT be over-emphasized when installing your new pump. Leave all fuel port covers in place until ready to connect lines.

WARNING! Whenever dealing with high pressure fuel from the CP3, use caution. At idle, the CP3 is making approx 6800 psi of fuel pressure. This is MORE than enough to cause severe injury or death.

BUILT is not simply a collection of commercially available parts that didn't come from the factory. Nor is simply paying someone else to do the work for you. Built is the 100's of personal hours in the modification, fabrication, understanding of components and how they affect the end goal. Breaking out your wallet doesn't mean you built it, it just means you bolted on someone else's work.

The worst part is getting the pump back in the pilot bore of the gear housing, everything else is cake.

Put some clean oil on the o-ring and lube the pilot bore of the gear housing and it's much easier.

Once your get the o-ring past the bevel on the pilot bore, the pump will slide right in.

Make sure you don't have any oil on the pump shaft and get as much oil off the shaft bore in the pump gear as possible.
