If you don't get an answer here post over on boatdiesel.com. A lot of good/professional mechanics with a wealth of experience. Price doesn't sound crazy but not sure what is driving the need for an injection pump. May need to ask you mechanic to be more specific.

He may have noticed some fuel under it in a valley or something like that. I had an injector pump going out on my 41 with 3208 Cats. There was a small amount of fuel sitting under it, nothing more than a drip or two but it was starting to leak. It's best to catch things like that prior to big problems cropping up. If the pump starts leaking and looses some pressure it will effect the injectors as well. They require a certain amount of pressure to work correctly or they start destroying themselves internally.
