This is none of my business, I am a retired Caterpillar mechanic who specialized in reconditioning Caterpillar fuel injection pumps and related equipment. About the only thing I can contribute to this problem you are having is to say that one of the problems having remanufactured or new components installed without having an understanding of why the original part failed leads to problems like yours.
I can understand that you are cranky with your Cat dealer but if it was me I would insist that the dealer thoroughly explain why the injection pump failed and maybe let them help you fix the reason for the failure. Fuel injection pumps are very rugged components.
It may turn out that the cause of the failure may be putting some of your other equipment at risk, no matter the make of it. In my experience, it isn't good business for a dealer to leave a customer high and dry.
For what it is worth.
