I have removed the fuel pump /sender, definitely a sender but no electric pump as such just a housing with sender on side and a big spring coiled around between two housings which looks like it could go up and down to cause suction to lift fuel from tank, hope the disciption of what's in the tank helps, thanks.

Hello and welcome to just answer. This particular Volvo diesel does not use a diesel lift pump. The engineers designed the high pressure injection pump to draw fuel directly from the tank. Have you filled the tank with good clean diesel yet?
