About a month ago my wife's 05 Focus 2.0 TDCi wouldn't start one morning and our local Ford garage changed the fuel filter and they stated that there was evidence of filings in the housing which could lead to the high pressure pump failing.  Sure enough it cut out on her last week.  

 

I've sourced a pump and I'm halfway through fitting it and I'm slightly worried about what I've seen in the engine block....   The cavity that the pump fills doesn't seem to have anything there for the pump shaft to engage with, pump shaft being about 1.5" wide and 0.5" high...

 

The pump is a Siemens...

 

Is this normal?... Can I just install the pump as is or should there be something in the cavity to engage...

 

Also found out that the 2.0 TDCi is notoriously difficult to get going again... Any tips?

 

Thanks in advance...

Hi Steads...

 

Thanks for the reply...

 

The lobe you mention... Is that a separate part?  Do you have a photo of it you could upload?

 

Cheers...
