    My injection pump started to leak from the throttle and down the linkage about a month ago. I have been letting it ride the way it is. Do yall know how long the pump will last like this or is it likely to go completely out anytime. I've considered replacing it with a rebuilt pump from diesel injection service. The diesel has 273,000 miles on this stock inj pump. Any suggestions would be great.

    273k out of an injection pump is nothing to feel bad about, brother. I can't say how long you can limp along with a throltle shaft leak. I do know that your power and mileage will suck and will keep getting worse until you swap a new one in.
