The neat shimming jig was about the only part that went well tonight. I though I knew how the springs went back on, I was wrong. I found a pic of a pump that seams to have the the same spring system as mine. Anyone have a detailed pic of an '83 NA pump top they'd like to share. For the difficulties I'm having with this I better be able to do 2nd gear burnouts in this hog  :P

Any picture you have seen here in this thread will work, especially the ones in my initial post.

1.6 NA? Yeah right. lmao.

The pics were great for everything except the accelerator return springs. Both my NA pumps use different springs than my TD pump.

I hope this isn't a serious derail but 3 days of cranking and my ole gal hasn't fired up yet. The only thing I didn't do correctly was I reused the seal for the head and the oring for the accelerator lever rather than replacing them. I cleaned the surfaces and seals and lubed with diesel fuel before assembly it must be drawing air from somewhere??? I have fuel at the injectors when I crack them but it just wont fire. I've started a somewhat dry pump multiple times granted it wasn't 15*F outside for a week but she's been plugged in around the clock. When I decided to do the gov mod I discovered that my alternator bracket was held on my two loose bolts, leaking water rapidly, great discovery I know! I checked timing of my pump before the gov mod it was .95mm and then I rechecked timing after addressing my other issues and it was .965mm. My fuel isn't gelled from what I can see. I've checked motor timing a hundred times, what is going on!? I did the big no-no, she ran for 2 seconds from a glowplug-less shot of ether. I'm using a New Holland 8260 for a jump vehicle so I'm getting plenty of amperage. Should I twist in my main fuel screw more? I'm stumped fella's.

Usually it is the fuel screw that needs twisting in at this stage.

Go half turn at a time until you get it to run, be prepared. It could take off on the RPM's.

I have the screw 1.5 turns in, great crankng speed, smoke out the tailpipe. The motor is shaking rapidly, something can't be right.

Did you properly reference the throttle arm when you took it off??? If you've got smoke, its getting fuel in to the cylinders.. either the GP's are toast now from the repeated glowing, or its not enough fuel. Hold the pedal down while cranking, if it catches and you can hold it running with the pedal, you are off on the throttle arm to shaft orientation.

The GP's are doing to job I think. I've been WOT while cranking. So my arm to the shaft relation must be wrong.

I got the car running tonight! It seems like short blips of the throttle it returns to to idle but longer bursts the RPM's don't drop like they should between shifts? I guess I could be a spline off still? Otherwise it feels a wee bit spunkier.

If it still drops, I'd say your plenty close. Back out the fuel screw and up the idle screw to compensate. The springs don't quite have enough pull on the internal lever to pull it back to idle when you let off the pedal.. You are close :)

Gratifying isn't it? ;)

Good Job.
