SOURCE: Diesel fuel pump/installation
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.

SOURCE: air in fuel lines wont
Did you replace the filter and lines because of the airlocked injectors or did you get the problem after changing the filter and lines? Did you replace the injectors?
On the TDI's it takes a lot to get them bled. Even just replacing the fuel filter can be a pain. It is recommended to fill the filter with fuel through the center opening when replacing. I usually just take the old filter and pour it into the new filter. Try this and you still may have to crank it several times(many, many times). Let me know if there is any change.

Did you check to see if there is power to the glow plugs if not then that may be the problem and if there is power when you cycle the key not to start but for the plugs to warm up you may have a bad glow plugs.

Make sure that the idle is set at 40Hz. You do this by placing a frequncy meter on one of the 120Vac outlets. If frequency is low, the engine will run rough at idle. There is a 3/8 nut next to carberator that needs to be turned to the right to increase the idle speed.
