Remove/replace 2H injector pump without timing mark sight hole

I must remove my Series 60 2H injector pump to take off the leaking aluminium cover underneath. The workshop manual states that if the pump does not have a sight hole screw to look at the champhered timing cog mark, then the timing cover must come off to correctly align for replacement of the pump.

Has anybody ever carefully removed an injector pump and replaced it by simply refitting it with no cogs having moved?

Regards, Rob

SOURCE: Leaks oil looks like from valve cover

You have to remove the spark plugs cables and remove the four nuts that you see when the cables are removed.

When the four nuts are removed, simply raise the valuve cover. When replacing the gasket, make sure you get the gromets as well. Those sometimes get worn or crack since they are more exposed than the value cover gasket. Make sure that you clean the cover from oil and replace the gasket with no use of silicon.

Good Luck.

I need the titening torque specs on a Isuzu 4hk1, big end bolts,cilinder bolts and injector timing marks on the flywheel and cam gears

head bolts
98 N?m (10 kg?m/72 lb?ft) ?147 N?m (15 kg?m/108 lb?ft) ? 30° - 60°

big ends
39 N?m(4.0 kg?m/29 lb?ft) ? 60° ?30

flywheel is dowled pined to crankshaft so it goes in correct cant get that wrong unless someone has removed dowel pin.

timing mark on front pulley in middle of pulley aligns up with mark in front timing cover, and cam should have dot or "B" (depending on year) that aligns up with outer edge of head when TDC No1 firing. in this position the injector pump if common rail has dot on gear that aligns to casting mark on pump near where shaft for gear comes out of pump (can only see when pump is removed) white texta mark the tooth with the dot and fit pump while all other marks previuosly mentioned are still in correct position, in side of bell housing there should be an inspection nut or plastic bolted tear drop cover to remove close to chassis rail look inside with mirror and torch and white texta marked tooth should be in middle of this inspection hole to confirm its not a tooth out.

Do I have to remove crankshaft pulley to remove engine front cover (timing cover) on a 2008 mercury mountaineer all wheel drive 4.0L

If it is an aluminium housing I would say you have to . If there is a nut holding the harmonic balancer on use a 1/2 rattle gun(impact) and undo nut . You will not be able to hold the crank any other way. Use a harmonic balance puller to pull the pulley. Wat6ch for the crank key as you pull it off. I think that there may be a more sinster problem awaiting you as the cover covers the chain or gears and has no water behind it except what leaks through the back of the cover from corrosion holes behind the water pump impellor.. Do the nut up with the impact gun. You may have to remove the radiator to get enough space to work on the cover.

Type your problem for a to time when instaling injector pump

When you remove the pump, be careful with the fuel lines! There are two places that you need to be aware of when it comes to timing the pump. There is a dowel pin in front, that must be lined up with the hole, and there is one mark on the flat spot directly above the pump. That mark lines up with scribe mark on the engine where the pump bolts up to. Remove the filter housing, and clean the area if you can't see it.

I have seen timing belt overhaul kits. They may be worth looking at.
You can check at the library for Hayes or Chilton's repair manuals and the do it yourself instruction website.
Here is instructions from the UK. They have pictures.

If you need to remove the crankshaft pulley nut with rope method, you can determine the TDC of a cylinder by tracing the sparkplug cable back to the distributor cap and looking at the rotor position. It should be in the firing position
Here's some info in found if you want to remove the water pump as well, or you can ignore that.
From my research the idler bearing probably should be changed. If it goes the belt will slip and destroy the engine.

The real work is getting to the belt, not replacing it
When you get one set of marks (camshaft or crankshaft) to line up then look at the other set. It is right since the engine is working. Probably the crankshaft gear will have 2 teeth with lines cut in them, one line in the valley or a chip on a tooth. You can mark the unit also. Remember do not rotate the camshaft/crankshaft with the belt off. Keep them aligned with the marks.

Remove the serpentine belt using a 3/8" drive breaker bar or ratchet to release the tensioner.

Remove front timing belt cover
Remove splash guard under engine
Remove vibration damper guard
Remove ignition coil cover from top of engine

Note: the belt can be replaced without removal of the splash guard. The vibration damper guard can be removed from the top. It is held on by two 10mm bolts. One is toward the driver's side (about 4 o'clock if looking at damper) and the other one is toward the bottom (about 6 o'clock). You'll have to feel around for them, but you can get them with a ratcheting wrench. If you cannot feel them, they are visible from below with the splash pan removed

Turn the engine clockwise until the timing marks align as shown on the upper cover.
Remove upper timing cover

Removing timing belt:
Remove tensioner upper mounting bolt.
Undo lower mounting bolt.
Twist tensioner to free plunger.
Remove bolt.
Remove tensioner.

Note: If the timing belt hasn't been replaced, it is a good idea to replace it at this time. If the tensioner is leaking fluid, replacement is necessary. Even if you are not replacing it, it must be removed to compress the plunger for installation of the belt when finished. Be sure to make note of which side of the tensioner unit faces out.

Do NOT rotate the camshafts or crankshaft with timing belt removed. Engine damage will occur!

Spin the tensioner and idler pulleys. Replace if excessive bearing noise or grinding is heard.
Remove belt.

Install timing belt:
Place belt around crankshaft pulley and right-hand idler.
Place belt over camshaft pulleys.
Position belt around water pump and press over tensioner pulley.

If reusing the old tensioner, you must compress the plunger again. Make sure the hole in the plunger lines up with the hole in the body of the tensioner and place in a vice with the side that faces out pointing up. SLOWLY compress the plunger using the vice, stopping frequently to allow the hydraulic fluid to move. Once the hole in the plunger is even with the hole in the body, insert a nail, pick or similar through to hold the plunger in place. Make sure it is long enough to be grabbed and removed once tensioner is installed.

Install the tensioner, torquing mounting bolts to 25 Nm (18 ft lb)
Remove locking pin/nail/pick
Install upper timing cover and make sure timing marks still line up. Wait 5 minutes for tensioner to fully extend.
Rotate the engine by hand clockwise two full revolutions, making sure marks line up each time.
Reinstall covers and serpentine belt as shown:

Also, there is a mark on the crankshaft gear that should line up with a mark on the engine when the timing marks line up. I do not have a picture of it, but you should see what 'm talking about..

Actually replacing the water pump is quite simple. First, drain the coolant:

When the belt is off, remove the 7 bolts that hold the pump to the engine. Clean the gasket mating surface and install the new pump. Then continue with installing the timing belt.

Timing diesel fuel pump

first remove the timing cover afer remove also remove the crankshaft pully.
now you can see timing belt clearly next remove the valve cover to see valves.
Rotate the engine by hand you can see where you remove the engine bully key grove that key should be top side while you rotating the engine there is mark like -- on the cover behand where you remove the pully so that mark and the crank shark key should in lined.
after that look the injection pump pully you can see front side mark --- look the engine direct behand the bully you can see mark that two mark should be in line have look the engine valves first cylinder should be close and the 4cylinser exhaust valve open.
i thing that will help you.

dont worry this language is my second language.if i make any mistake how i typing.
