Ah so ... well, in that case dump it, the diaphragm is probably dried out anyway.

Do you think I should have the injector pump checked out? How long do they go without problems?
Until they quit. It will probably go forever. I suspect the governor will start to give problems like hunting and you might have low power eventually as the plungers wear and leak but it's unlikely you will have a sudden and total failure.
