Seattle Injector in downtown Seattle does a pretty good job.

Again I remind that I am lurker who rarely posts but definitely appreciates
the knowledge and experience shared in here by our frequent knowledgeable

Thank you.

Having 3 diesel Rabbits in which I have replaced seals (o-rings) associated
to the injection pump start lever .... and having since seemingly developed
other leaks afterwards in all of them due to ULSD, I have concluded,as noted
here by others, that I need at least complete seal jobs done on all of them.

When the term "rebuild" is used here, are we using it in the context of a
real rebuild as in honing and installing oversize parts, whatnot and
resealinig or in the context of a reconditioning limited to cleaning/mixing
and matching/reusing/canabalizing old parts and resealing?

If there are choices as to rebuild or recondition, who has a good reputation
for a good true rebuild or a good reconditioning? Are there any real world
reasons to prefer one over the other?

I am north of Seattle in Mt. Vernon and for various reasons would prefer to
deliver/pick up my pumps. If the better reputation is further afield I would
forgo the face to face advantages.
