Bad fuel pump on 1982 volvo 244 diesel

I pulled the fuel line going into the fuel filter and cranked the engine over. No fuel came out. Is it the sending unit in the tank? If so, how hard a fix is that? thanks Andy Prentice

It could be a blocked pickup in the tank but is more likely a dead fuel pump. Pickuo is located in top of tank and is accesed through the boot(trunk) floor.
Fuel pump is under the right hand rear corner of the car and is mounted on an insulated plate with the accumulator.

Where can i get a rebuild kit for a 1982 volvo 6cyl diesel fuel distributor/pump?

I would not suggest doing this repair yourself. It is a difficult job for a seasoned mechanic. I don't even rebuild them, I just get a remanufactured one from NAPA or Pep Boy's. Going thru Volvo will be even more expensive. You can go to or for replacement pumps. Is it leaking? I would also look into replacing the injectors at the same time along with the fuel filter.

How to check if fuel is getting to the engine

time to clean out the system
you should probably try running reg diesel through the lines
so drain the fuel tank and put some reg diesel in rem the fule line recently replaced and allow it to pour our into a bucket then after the fule starts running there then hook line back up and start pumping it through the injector pump remove 1 of the cylinder lines and see if you have fuel there using a clear hose and a bucket
attach hose to end of fuel injector line and see if it is pushing fuel through the injector body
remem ber you are still pushing reg diesel

now that the system is clean and clear hook all lines up and try and start the truck up on reg diesel
if it runs then your off to the races
if there is no fuel check the fuel filter it may just be full of gunk
or the pump might be cooked
but rem line b4 filter and check for flow

1982 244 won't start B21F

The problem, is more than likely, related to the fuel pump relay, located behind the ashtray.
There are two there, but the culprit is the one on the right!
They are just above the fuses,
But before you eject it, just gently twist l/r while turning and see what happens.
