Donnie :

What fuel brand system is on this engine?

Donnie :

What is the serial number of the machine?

Donnie :

Is it a Delpi pump and Standyne pump?

Donnie :

Or Standyne, sorry for the typo.

Customer :

Fuel brand system - Diesel

Donnie :

Sorry, another typo, the brand of the fuel pump.

Donnie :

I may find the exact type of fuel pump with the serial number but, sometimes it doesn't show up.

Customer :

Looking at the fuel pump, it has BOS on one side and perkins on other.

Customer :

Number on pump is XXXXXXXXXX R997 2644N208

Donnie :

Is this the injection pump? Or is it the lift "transfer" pump?

Customer :

011 is also on the pump; 491 is to the right of 011; then to the right of that 438462; also under the bottom of 011 is 24218; this is all the information that we can find on the pump.

Donnie :

I realy need the machine serial number to find your information.

Customer :

We believe the brand of the fuel pump is BOS

Donnie :

Yes, some also had a Bosch brand pump.

Customer :

There is nothing showing to say if it's a Delpi or Standyne.

Customer :

Okay, just found something else on the pump; it's a BOSCH

Customer :

What machine number do you need? Are you saying you need the tractor machine number?

Donnie :

Yes, the PIN- Product Identification Number or even the engine serial number will work.

Customer :

Model is 416D

Customer :

Serial is CRS19194; there is another serial number AN514377

Donnie :

416D's have four different fuel system setups. That is why I am asking for a serial number. Each uses different tool and procedures.

Customer :

Product No. CAT0416DJBFP15219

Donnie :

BFP15219 is the number I need. Give me a few minutes to find the procedure.

Donnie :

Here is the install procedure. You will need the tools marked for the Bosch system. Click here for Installation

Customer :

Donnie, we are looking on how to time the engine; the pump has already been timed.

Customer :

Okay, Buddy, do you know the information on timing the engine?

Donnie :
