MF 168 starting issue

Hello,

We have an MF 168 that won't restart on a hot day and it only does run around chores. The fuel injection pump is hot and if I run some tap water on it, then it will start but takes a bit of turning over. What's causing it? I'm in OZ and temps over 30 degrees causing the issue. 40 degrees predicted tomorrow.

CAV injection pump in need of reconditioning.
When it warms up , gaps widen basically, due to wear, and unable to reach proper operating pressure .
Take pump off , and take to diesel injection specialist.
