If we're talking about the thing that has a pipe to each of the cylinders on your engine then the answer is Yes, your injector pump must be correctly timed in order for the engine to run properly. This is the part of the diesel that does what a distributor on regular car engine does, namely ignition timing.

The exact procedure for setting the timing depends on what model of engine you have, get a manual from Perkins to be sure.

That said it usually goes like this:
1 - make sure the engine has the correct cylinder at TDC, this makes the gear connected to the camshaft be in the correct position.

2 - Set the pump at the correct position, this will either involve looking at a mark in a window on the pump (standyne pumps), or looking at the keyway in the shaft of the pump, etc.

3 - Bolt the pump into place on the engine making sure the gears/drive meshes nicely. Connect all the fuel lines to the pump.

4 - purge the injectors by loosening each fuel line at the cylinder end and cranking the engine until fuel comes out of the pipe, then tighten it back up.

5 - Crank the engine and start it, check the rpm.

Miller trailblazer 302 diesel welder, full tank of diesel, gauge shows empty, starts but then stops


the Trailblazer 302 diesel, has a fuel level sensor that tells Control PCB2 if there is fuel in the tank. PCB2 sends a signal to CR1, which lets voltage go to the Fuel Solenoid. If the sensor is bad, PCB2, CR1, or the fuel solenoid, fuel will not get to the engine. I am including the manual for the Trailblazer. Now keep in mind, the circuit may be a little bit different based on serial number. In the center of page 46 will be the fuel circuitry. Good luck https://www.millerwelds.com/files/owners-manuals/O217454U_MIL.pdf

How do i align the timing gear on my perkins dk 51280 engine


Timing gears? have you pulled it that far apart? On timing gears there are usually stamped onto the gears a small dot. lign them up. Not sure why tore down so far? If you take off the diesel pump align the timing marks in the small window plate first else you will be in a mess.

Check the fuel solenoid is getting power. It may be locked out by loow lube oil pressure and other things.

ALSO when restarting a diesel one OFTEN must "bleed" the fuel lines at each injector... same as when one inadvertently runs a diesel out of fuel. Crack the connectors at the injectors and crank till fuel comes out and tighten each one. Yes, it is a pain...
