Default Injection Pump rebuild

Does anyone know of a good source for rebuild or good used fuel pump for 1.6L turbo diesel engine. The pump is leaking badly. Apparently the seals are gone and one mechanic is blaming it on new diesel fuel. Did anyone else experience this problem? I would think that it is simply problem of age (1993). If you know of some one in southwestern Ontario or Michigan/Ohio area I would appreciate the info.

The seals are rather easy to change out...

go to vwdiesel.net and check out the forums. The search will be your friend..

I think you can get all the seals for around $20

Ain't the new fuel. It has old seals. Period. That is just a crock of cr## if they say that and it's only a way to make you believe them since they are supposed to be the professional. There are more professionals here than at any dealer. They are trained to suck money from your wallet. That is just about the extent of the training. Do Sleet's suggestion.
Just because you can does not mean you should. But then again...........
If you don't get it, be patient, you will
