I had the injector pump and injectors rebuilt on AC 180, D2800

This answer was rated:

I had the injector pump and injectors rebuilt on AC 180, D2800 engine. I want to make sure I put them back in correctly and get the pump on right. I know the injectors are supposed to have a copper washer on them (the rebuilt ones came back with new washers) I can't seem to get the old ones out if they are even there. I have tried a little hook tool.
Hi I'm Wayne
I will help you with this

OK, Pump timing,
make sure it is at TDC, both rockers loose on #1
pump are preset from rebuilder to slide in
with correct timing

as far as copper washers, they normally stick to bottom of injector
some times they stay in head, take a thin brass/aluminum punch
tap on them in hole , if they are there they will loosen

thanks--how do I make sure the engine is at TDC? Alos, assuming I get the old washers out, how do you make the new ones stay on the injector while you put them in? Thanks

Hi thank you for that

remove valve cover , like i mention #1 , rockers both loose , and the pointer on damper/flywheel , at TDC

washer drop in the hole, then install injector
