The main motivation for signing up. I recently had to remove my pump, the in-line one, and send it out for a rebuild. I got it back and now I'm trying to re-install it.The engine wasn't running when I pulled it so it is not at TDC on #1. I took photos of the timing gears before I removed the pump so I could get it back together properly. This however is turning into an exercise in futility. When everything is lined up according to the pictures, the pump is ready to open on #2 but the engine is opening #3. As far as I can tell the timing pointer will only bolt on in one position and if I turn it to match the engine then it is out by about 60*. Considerable turning of the engine in either direction doesn't seem to be able to reconcile the two. It appears to be possible to loosen the center nut on the injector pump and turn the pointer without moving the actual pump so that it remains in position. Retightening would set the timing pointer in the proper position along with the pump being in sequence with the engine. Is this possible or is there something that locks timing gear and the camshaft in a one only correct position. the manuals I have seems to suggest, in an exploded drawing of the pump. that my suggestion is indeed possible. Doing this would put everything in accord with the drawings in my manuals as well. My problem is that over here mentioning what the tractor is, and what I'm trying to do. gets me this confused look at best or "deer in the headlights" from the rest. Even the local IH dealer says he'll have to go read up on it. I'm really hoping I won't have to remove the loader and front axle to get this thing timed, but I do need it for winter, which appears to be sneaking up a little too quick.
