But if you didn’t bleed the fuel system, how can you be sure that the IP is faulty?
I’m not sure what you mean by "adjustment to the valves right on top of the i.p.”
Are you sure that the rack is moving?
You need the timing tool, a.k.a. a drip tube, to time the pump. You remove an install a pump at begin of delivery (24Âº BTDC in the compression stroke of the first cylinder). The pump has to be on its mark.
The absence of a prefilter would not kill an IP, because of the main filter. It can clog a main filter more quickly or it can cause problems with the lift pump (dirt getting stuck in the valves of the lift pump).
