Engine oil lubricating the IP is not true for OM 621 and at least some 615 engines. Does anyone know where the cutoff was between the fuel lubricated pumps and crankcase oil lubricated pumps? I think it was mid 70s somewhere. My 66 engines are fuel lubricated. My 81 240D is engine lubed.

fill the pump with engine oil so it would displace any fuel/fuel-oil mix that had migrated into the oil reservoir. My point is that if you use fuel that eats seals, these older pumps DO mix fuel with the lube oil in the IP, so expect your seals to get eaten. At 02:28 PM 4/7/2006, you

Fuel doesn't EAT most seals. Older (those used at least thru the mid '80s) seals swell when fuel with sulfur is used and when that fuel is replaced with fuel that doesn't have sulfur in it, the seals shrink back toward their original size. BUT, if they are 10+ years old, they are likely to
