these style oil pumps you can pack the gears with Vaseline once installed into the pump cover there is no timing of the pump gears to the crank shaft gearas the bottom crank gear is splined with notches that just need to be aligned to the pumps inner gear when the timing cover is slid onto the engine that is all you need to do to prime this pump and have it timed so to say
