240 fuel pump for 1974/5 model

Brehon47Tiny (@Brehon47) Western Sydney

I have a 244DL 1974 plated but apparently is considered a 1975. I'm advised that the petrol pump is unique to the 74/75 244. I have further info that all 75-78 or 79 models have the same petrol pump.

The original pump bears Volvo part number 460821- Bosch part number is 0580254996

Can anyone assist with a good used - or new - pump?

I'm also told 2 series pumps from 81 onwards can be fitted but require significant modification.

Any help to locate a suitable pump would be appreciated.



  • Hey Tiny, Skandix has them listed as in stock.. not cheap! http://www.skandix.de/en/spare-parts/engine/fuel-mixture-formation/fuel-supply-system/pumps/fuel-pump-electric-kit/1012688/

    Someone on here might have a used one they'd be willing to part with. failing that, try Voldat or Berry Motor Group.

  • A couple cheaper options from Rock auto (I'm looking for one of these too)

    That's a K-Jet main fuel pump.

    90 litres per hour, 750cc (min) per 30 sec.s, 5 bar pressure, with funny li'l fittings out the side.

    Same basic pump used in K-Jet 140s, K-Jet 240 up to 84, although 'Bild 1' (with funny li'l things on the side) disappeared and was superseded by 'Bild 2' style units, which were the service replacements for Bild 1 pumps.

    (source of info - a scan of an old Bosch document with the properties of "Kennlisten / technische Merkmale")

    These things also have an accumulator as another part of their setup.

    These should work as replacements -

    Or any 5 bar pump that flows at least 1500 cc per minute. Some Merc K-Jet 5-bar pumps flow a wee bit more, but that's okay; this is why we have fuel pressure regulators.

    That's a formidable reply - the plein air of Tassie & your prodigious knowledge of Volvos is a formidable combination. I'll follow your suggestions asap.

    Many thanks to yourself & Tommy


  • These days, we can upload files.

    Here's the PDF of all the K-jet pumps in the original German.

    Hi tiny, did you work out which number you wanted?

    Thanks Bob - you are the OZVOLVO archivist par excellence.

    I might be out of the woods - the mechanic replaced a broken pump shaft and it seems fine albeit l haven't driven it any distance yet.

    I'll post an update tomorrow.
