(10) Adjust the graduated wheel on the test
stand so that the zero mark on its rim
lines up with the pointer.
(11) Recheck the number one pump element
for port closing to make sure that the fuel
stops flowing from the delivery valve
holder when the pointer lines up with the
zero mark on the test stand wheel. THIS
(12) Having thus determined the port closing
position for plunger number 1, remove the
delivery valve holder and re-install the
delivery valve and spring previously
removed. Make sure these parts are
clean. Replace the delivery valve holder
and tighten it firmly, but not excessively.
(13) Now proceed to the next pump element in
the firing order which is 1-5-3-6-2-4.
Determine port closing of the next pump
element in the same manner as outlined
for plunger number one, except that it
should occur 60 degrees later. Proceed
until all six pump elements are timed at
60 degree intervals in firing order.

number five plunger, the fuel should stop
flowing when the graduated wheel on the
test stand indicates 300 degrees. Add or
remove spacers as necessary.
