I am installing an injector pump on my 1985 ford 555B 3 cyl

Customer Question

i am installing an injector pump on my 1985 ford 555B 3 cyl backhoe. The manual says, be sure to line up the mark on the cam drive gear mark with the 3cyl mark on the injector gear. I have removed the pump timing gear access cover but the cam gear is not exposed enough to spot the cam gear mark. Is it necessary to remove the grill, hyd tank, radiator, fan, and water pump to expose the cam gear? HELP!!!

Hi my name is ***** ***** will be glad to try to help. If you have the CAV style pump copy and paste this link in your browser for the procedure. Let me know if you need more help or if you have another style pump let me know the make and model pump you have and I will be glad to help further. You should be able to t get to #1 TDC and install the pump locked onto #1 TDC. The injection shop can set the pump at #1 for you.
