Stop solenoid washer size

Post by Philip Chidlow » Thu Nov 13, 2014 2:21 pm

Hi, fuel's escaping from where the stop solenoid goes into the pump. It needs resealing. Does anyone happen to know the size of the crushable plug washer I need for this? I am taking the car to a mech I use who will have suitable socket (mine are a bit fat) and also to have some other bits looked at and I said I'd pick up one on the way over. Ta. Phil

Sorry I don't but if it's a copper one it should be easy to find one in a set -

If you're stuck it'd be a good idea to but a new stop solenoid which should have the washer with it and fit this - they are fairly available from good motor factors and should be under £20. Also gives you a spare plunger if you loose one when the original solenoid is removed!

Hi, I recently purchased one off ebay for £6.99 still showing a stock level of 91, search --- Diesel stop solenoid. The washer what came with the valve was a standard flat copper.
