The advantage of using my existing pump is that it can go direct back on timing marks but apparently, a new pump will require the timing to be reset. Advantage of getting my (possibly) fully serviced pump checked is that it should only require the seals changed as it has been lying in the garage of about 7 years. The gear will be self contained within the timing gear cover. You can put marks on the gears to ensure it goes back together right. Do not crank the engine with this drive gear loose inside the cover. To get to this cover, you have to get the fan shroud off at a minimum. You may want to remove the radiator. Hope this all makes sense to you. Hero puch service manual.
Dodge Timing Marks
Correct timing of the Lucas CAV DPA pump can be. Verified by removing the. The timing window. Cover on the injection pump. NOTE: Special equipment in an authorized shop is. Required to precisely time the Lucas CAV DPA. For troubleshooting and in an. Emergency, visual alignment of the timing mark is. Close enough for the engine to run. Most of the early diesel engines used timing marks positioned somewhere in the 10°-20° BTDC region. So by timing at 15°BTDC the engine will start and run. Once run if you have white smoke emitting from the exhaust you will need to advance the Injection timing. If when you rev the engine it sounds harsh you may need to retard the timing slightly.
Anybody out there have any info on how to set the injector timing?

Cav Dpa Timing Marks Off Road
I am questioning whether the pump is sticking in the automatic advanced mode, or whether it is generally too far advanced (but only firing early when hot)
At present it is on the factory timing marks. The engine is a Watermota Seapanther 33 yrs old.
