Hello, Welcome to Just Answer.
What you can do is remove the no: 1 cylinder injector. With the engine turn to firing number 1 cylinder at the desired degrees. The pump has three mounting bolts loosen them of and turn the pump until it squirt diesel. That should be very close to the correct setting. One can however also set it with a dial gauge on the camshaft to be very accurate. But that one I am not to familiar with. This guy on this site really knows this very well so you might want to look at it.
Did you have time to set the timing? Do you need more information?
You will have to have the diesel pump checked to see what the problem is. It is not possible to tel from where I am writing you on this site.
Okay thanks for letting me know
