Broken bolt in diesel pump

Postby prutprut » 15 Oct 2019, 17:22

Hi guys!

As a freshman to the T3 and mechanics in general, I seem to have made my first real "feck" up. It all started with a diesel leakage from the diesel pump. It looked like it was coming from the shaft that connects the LDA to the diesel pump. From what I read, it was most likely the seal at the pump that needed replacing, which should be relatively easy to replace.

So I thought that this was a job I could do. However, my real turbels started when I tried to dismantle the shaft. When I was turning the wrench, it just moved the shaft, and not the nut, so in my frustration I made the noob mistake of turning it the other way to see if the nut was movable. Thus breaking the bolt of… (see picture)

I have tried to search the internet for a similar problem, but it seems that I am the first idiot to do this. My question is what to do here. Is it possible to dismount the diesel pump and send it in somewhere for repair? Would dismounting and mounting it again be a doable job? Or is there some other way to fix this? All input here is appreciated!
