Default 1994 Ford 7.3 IDI turbo injection pump question.

My new tow rig has some issues I'm working out. I want to know if the turbo and non-turbo injection pumps are the same. I have poor delivery pressure and volume on the #8 cylinder so I am going to have to replace or rebuild my pump. I would assume that if the two pumps are identical then the non-turbo pump would have to be adjusted to compensate for the turbo. Please educate me on this subject

They are different but if all you have is NA pump it will work until you can have your rebuilt. Do not let go of your pump, As you know the IDI turbo pump's are rare. If you use the NA pump you are correct you will have to turn it up, 15 minute job. When you change the pump's leave the gear cover on and remove the pump from the gear or you will lose your timing.

Ebay's got some rebuilt pumps for about 275 bucks. Should I avoid like the plague or jump on a sweet deal?

I did some research on the company that sells the el-cheepo pumps on ebay. Very bad reviews on oilburners.net
