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: My lincoln welder/generator Ranger 8 will not idle

Sounds like your CT or CT board is bad. CT stands for Current Transformer. A CT senses an increase in voltage draw or current, which will trigger the idle solenoid.

Lincoln diesel welder not working

Put a 9 volt battery across the slip rings of the exciter for a moment to "Flash" the exciter. If the first attempt does not work, reverse the polarity of the 9 volt battery. It only takes a few seconds. This creates the initial magnetic field that makes it work.

How to install oil pump on 300d lincoln welder perkins

It is most likely an accumulation of hardened oil deposit, which can get quite hard. Pushing pump shaft in and pulling out repeatedly should slowly knock it clean. Since there are not many suppliers of those parts, best to not pry on anything.

Hi, i have a lincoln 300D welder and the problem is when I have it on auto/idle it wont work. it only weld when I have on high/idle. please help. it a 2006 lincoln 300D classic with a perkin engine

You can try to turn the screw on the carb to slightly raise the idle and see if that makes a difference. If not then there is usually a type of inductive pick up that has part of the wiring going through it. When it sense a current draw it releases the engine from low speed. Some of these set ups don't work well if the idle is turned down too far so that's why I suggested trying that first. Plus is that works it is a cheap repair.

Lincoln 175hd mig will not feed.

Make sure your roller motor is spinning. If it is, then adjust the rollers tight enough to spin out the wire. If power is available and motor does not spin, check the fuse on the control board. If it is ok, then it is your control board.
