I cannot believe the last poster said "distributor"...well any way
The pump was not tight enough on the gear. It slipped I've done that half a dozen times intil i started cleaning that shaft well. Or you could have not adjusted the valves correctly. Everything in that gear cover has a keyway and key except the fuel pump. unless you have the only vp44 that year. Its been a month sense you posted so i guess you got the distributer in correctly good luck..

The distributor could be off by 180 degrees. You want the number one cylinder to be at top dead center, between the exhaust and intake strokes (after the exhaust valve closes but before the intake valve opens). Line up the timing mark on the balancer now and install the distributor, per the instructions.

My 5.9 dodge cummins diesel won't start, I've replaced the fuel lift pump, and the fuel filter, turns over. But will not start?


Most likely you just have air in the lines.Crack them open one at a time and bleed them with the fuel pump off and on till you get fuel.If it fires dont hit the throttle let it sit and idle and close the line.Does it fire up with a small whif of starting fluid?

Engine replacement


any of the non computerized aka 12 valve cummins will interchange going from the p7100 pump on the 94 to the ve injection pump on the 92 may mean rerouting some of the fuel lines to hook it up. make sure you use all the sensors from the 94 engine though so all your gauges read correctly other than the fuel system the engines are identical though so should have no issues doing this
