Hi It's Dan. I will be glad to help. bare with me while I pull the info

always verify the settings right on the engine tag on the front cover if the tag still exists.
It sound like either the prior settings are not correct or the acc drive may be out of time. What work was done to this engine?
Okay. You had the MVT conversion.. I know who you are now. It has been a long day.
To answer your question"Could the injection timing cause such an issue ?" No, it can cause such an issue. You have the right table it is Table 14-9, that is the only one out of the 4 pages you need.
First off, you need to find out what stroke the engine is on.
So i need you to put a wrench on No. 5 Injector Rocker Lever, and turn the engine in rotation watching that wrench..when it just starts to go up.. you should have a mark coming up on your pulley to align with your notch on the cover. It should be A.
The wrench is just something to watch for so you know you are on the right stroke, then you can follow the instructions on that chart.
Hi, I do not know where the additional attempted help came in but I agree to disagree. I have rebuilt many 855 series, N14, L10, M11 etc. If the Acc drive pulley is not in time You can set the valves and injectors in the wrong position causing them to be too tight. This will cause the engine to bind while trying to bar it over.
It will also result in bent push tubes if ran or attempted to start. Keep me posted.
Ok what injectors do you have? Tops stops I recall you saying? What part number? The engine will get a tighter overcoming compression.
Are you using the 6 inch lb t handle torque wrench to set the injectors?
They are on the side of the injector body.... Are they all matching injectors? Just make sure that adjustable is 6 in lbs. I have never used anything other than the 6 inch lb t handle. Not sure if I would trust the adjustable.
Sounds good. Let me know. I am not sure either. I never used anything other than the T handle one.
Ok good. Do you think there is a chance that the injectors at any time could have been adjusted too tight? Reason I am asking is that it might be worth having them tested if you have not already done so.
I would have them tested to be sure there is no damage to the nozzles. A little insurance to not have a smoking or misfiring engine to have to go back in again.
Yes you might need a different PT pump all together to match the injectors and non MVT configuration.

I agree. The pump needs to be matched and calibrated.
