I have not tried them. I'd likely stick with one of the shops that have been recommended from the forum members.

Gerald;
getting a price quota in advance without a test for an overhaul of the pump is nearly impossible. For 2.2 kUSD you can only check the system and adjust the system and make the pump look nice (plating, cleaning, detailing, blasting).
It is by far not always necessary to exchange the pistons and the pressure valves though several do offer only a full package.... Quality of both valves and pistons is a serious topic, both not availale from Bosch any more. Even higly decorated Koller and Schwemmer Bosch Service may use pistons which were produced somewhere in Asia....
My overhauler found an acceptable supplier in his third try for the pistons....
Pressure valves can also be used from the M130 pumps, which you may find much more often as a spare part than the M100 pump....
Here in Germany we have to invest something between KEUR 3-6 incl.valves and pistons but you will get nothing for 2 if something is shot!

Yeah I would second Hans. I got my pump worked on by him and it came out brand new. I hope he is doing well, tried calling him the other day but did not get a response. Some times he has a pump similar to yours ready so you just have to send your and he ships the new one right away. His shop number (631) 589-1600

It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted an update. I ended up sending the pump to Hans at H&R and it arrived back yesterday. I also sent him the injectors to test and he confirmed that they were all still good. Cold start valves were also sent, one tested fine and the other had a small leak. Still waiting on the one CSV to return.

Here I are some before and after pictures of the pump.





It may be a little while before I re-install the pump, may have to head to Amsterdam for a few weeks for work.

For the pump re-installation is there supposed to be a gasket on both sides of the spacer at the front of the pump?

One other question I had was related to the throttle body. With the spring removed from the arm that controls the butterfly, how much tension should there be? Should the butterfly stay open to what ever position you place it in or should it return closed on its own?

Do these calipers look like they are still salvageable? Pistons are not pitted at all.

I can't see why not. The seal sits in the seal groove and the seal is between the seal and the piston. The condition of the caliper surface both inside where the brake fluid is and beyond the seal groove where the dust cap seal fits has no effect on the function of the brakes as long as the area in contact with the fluid is clean. Pitting of the pistons is a problem but to my knowledge, pitting of the caliper is of no relevance.

Ok that's good news. Hopefully the rears will be in similar condition when I eventually get to removing them.

Looks like high quality work on that pump. I hope it runs as good as it looks

I hope it does as well!

Today I was finally able to remove the return fuel line at the rear of the engine bay. I've been trying for weeks to get it removed and today it finally broke loose. Now I just need the gasket at the front of the injection pump and I'm ready to put this all back together.

I haven't done any work on the car in about 2 months. I was in Amsterdam for work for 4 weeks and then took 2 weeks vacation in Switzerland. Got back to Calgary 2 weeks ago and since then it's been too cold to do any work. We've been at a high of -20 degrees C for over a week now. I'm not expecting to do too much over the next few winter months.

With the warmer spring temperatures I've finally gotten back to working on this project over the past weekend. Injection pump has been reinstalled and will continue piecing the remainder back together.



Today I also received the data card from Tom at the Classic Center. I'm not sure what everything means on there. Any chance this indicates the car came with the air horn option? They were fitted to the car but wasn't sure if it was factory installed.
