Well let me ask you this. How to install a new pump? I know it won't be as easy as a dial indicator. I heard I would need  a special tool. Do you know? Something about dynamic timing cannot be set by ear or something.

You line up the dots IIRC.

You scribe a line on the pump housing and pump bracket. When you get it back put it in the same place. There is a special timing tool for doing this job that uses the injection line pulses I think. Don't take the gear cover off, that will mess you up bad.

I have the factory service manuals if you need some pictures.

You access the 3 pump bolts from inside the cover plate  and once they are undone, the pump simply pulls out the back side of the cover, and the new one goes in exactly the same. There is a dowel pin, which must align inside there, and you'll see it. It isn't difficult.

Unless you mistakenly removed the gear, it which case you will have to find the dots.

ok sounds good; are the three bolts a turn-to-time affair like our pump?

Yes, you want a  tick of advance, maybe 1/8".

The pump has in and out screens that will shut you down if blocked.
Start with the out fitting, the inlet one  is much more involved, and transfer pump parts can fall out.

You need to scribe a line though because the pump can be rotated. There are 3 15mm bolts externally and then inside the gear cover there are 3 more.

You just crank the fuel screw, or you can specify  a heavy duty pump at the shop, and they will turn it for you.

I want to hammer out the specifics of the Ford IDI Conversion.  I have done a fuel routing schematic and have a list of suggested parts.  I could use the specifics of what size fittings you need to tie into the stock fuel systemlike at the stock filter.
