Injection pump, reseal or rebuild?

The pump has been leaking, it's wet with fuel but no drips that I can see. Engine isn't making oil! Is it time to rebuild it or is a reseal job good enough?
I need to drive it until I get my 01 Bleep Cherokee back on the road. Lately it seem like I'm getting further behind drowning in more and more repairs

As long as it's running good I'd reseal it and motor on. I know what you mean about repairs piling up. I have a big puddle of gear oil next to my left rear tire.

With 200K+ miles on it, I'd be leaning toward an overhaul. Hard call though. My 91.5 was still pulling strong with no leaks at 300K, but my 92 died a slow death by 190K.

BigRed- did you not just reseal that thing like this time last year? I remember you opening that thing up about four times?
