The evolution of the diesel engine began in the 1890s when Rudolf Diesel first conceived his theory of compression ignition. This culminated in his 25 horsepower, single cylinder model produced in 1897. Diesel engines quickly gained popularity due to their efficiency and higher torque than other engines of the same volume.
“The diesel pump is the heart of the engine” – Mick Stenton – Diesel Workshop Manager
Modern diesel engines range from the Maserati Quattroporte VI 271 hp 3.0 V6 to the Wärtsilä RT-flex96C 107,390 hp marine engine. Even these examples of sophisticated engineering follow the same basic principle of operation as early designs such as the comparatively basic, yet steadfast Fordson Major Tractor and the iconic early Land Rover vehicles.
The diesel injection pump is a critical component in the operation of all varieties of diesel engine. Here at Sheaf Diesels, our range of technical competence in the repair of these pumps is as extensive as the vastly differing needs of our customers. The most common pumps that we repair are including, but not limited to, those listed below.
