So as you see, gunk is everywhere (soft and black this time), screen is completely gone.
I have´nt removed transfer pump jet, maybe some recommendations ot thoughts before i start with it?
In my eye all looks bad as it can be
Fuel should flow through the injection pump's bleed orifice to the case, there is a vibrating wire through this orifice to regulate the flow. Remove the pink wire to prevent flow through the delivery system.OK, found screen from France, ordered and waiting. In mean time i remove supply pump and also check and clean delivery valve.
Thank you all for help and great ideas.

Question: if i put inlet cap on without supply pump and pressure regulator and give to IP fuel with good pressure - can fuel go thru pump to bowl and return line?
Metering valve turns good, shutoff set to open position.
I've once got a quote for a rebuild here in the Netherlands. It's cheaper or about the same price to buy one from the US! @Swfb found a local source for rebuild ones for I believe €750. If you decide to replace yours, ask him about it. Shipping from NL shouldn't be very expensive.Keith, yes, it should. But without cranking (electric fuel pump)? I get nothing. Not in fuel bowl, not in transfer pump pressure test/inlet cap lock port (what should be connected to vent wire passage)
My logic says that there is low pressure area of IP (inlet screen-regulator assembly-transfer pump), delivery valve is in high pressure area.
I did not removed delivery valve, as there is part, that should be replaced when taken apart.
If there should be fuel flow with electric pump and without cranking, i need new IP as here we dont have shops, who are willing to overhaul this IP.
And i dont have tools to do it myself (some courage i have )
