    On topic does the IP pump any fuel out the return? If not yes the vanes could be stuck.

    I like Smithw's idea. I heard about a similar principal applied to clean the IP & injectors while the vehicle is still operation - a 'diesel purge' using a product like Liqui Moly Diesel Purge - the Mercedes guys seem to rave about it. In this case, you just disconnect the inlet and return hose to the IP and drop them in the can of solvent and start your engine, running it until all the solvent has been consumed - heaps of vids on Youtube. It is a bit exy at $20 - 25/can though, but if you could work out what solvents are in the mixture, you could probably replicate it using smithw's method - might give a bit of extra cleaning power on top of the metho? I recall Tillyfromparadise breaking down the components of commercial injector cleaner in a recent thread...'Piston slap?' maybe. The trick is finding a solvent that will work on both dino and veg gum, but not destroy any of the seals. What about carby cleaner? That stuff is lethal on grime...and rubber gloves....

    I believe acetone is the go.
    Maybe hard to get since all the "tourism" paranoia began . . . .

    Yes and No. The old stuff was, but now ya see bottles claiming to be 100% acetone free.
    In the paint section at the big 'B' wharehouse ya can buy it in any quantity ya like up to 5 litre tins I think.

    Aa Qwarla has pointed out, acetone is readily available at all fine hardware stores.
    I am not sure I would start out using straight acetone in my IP.

    If it were me, I would start with something like Petrol, naphtha, Kerosene or mineral turpentine which is also known as White spirit,turpentine substitute, petroleum spirits, solvent naphtha (petroleum), varsol, Stoddard solvent,or more generically paint thinner.
    Most magical liquids that you pay $20-$30 for a 300ml bottle of that "fixes everything that might be possibly wrong with your engine" is normally a mixture of some or all of the above mentioned products.

    Well I finally pulled finger out and tried this fix, got two hose barbs with m12 thread and fitted it to the pump and pushed metho thru it for an hour. Reassembled everything cranked her over and still no fuel exiting the IP. C an only assume the pump is dead and with that the car. She was a good old girl but with other issues it may well be the right time to send her off to Valhalla. Thanks for input everyone , it was much appreciated. cheers

    The brown sticky gunk in your pump is not going to dissolve away magically with an hours contact with ethanol/metho. Metho is not a great solvent anyway. Petrol would be better. I still think you should take off the pump and take it apart. Better than just junking the car. If you are about to do that then taking it apart and failing to fix it is no great loss. You could try taking off the pump then just taking the cover off. You will see how dirty it is then and if you have the patience you could clean it without further disassembly using petrol and a brush. The longer you leave it the harder it will be to clean. I left one for 6 months and it was stuck together inside like glue.

    I would try again with petrol or something else, I have not try to clean a pump thats has WVO oil through it, only bio and diesel powered pumps. Bio works great for removing the sticky stuff in diesel powered pumps, methos quite good for Bio pumps. Maybe you could get some gunk out of the bottom of a filter and see what dissolves it the best.
    Did you get much crap in the bucket? When Ive done it I get a surprising amount of junk in the bottom of the bucket.
    It also might be useful to crank the engine over for a few seconds while you have your flush pump running, as you are trying to loosen up those vanes in the IPs internal lift pump.
