NOTE: When a new timing gearcase cover is installed, to establish the correct position of the injection pump fuel rack stop before removing it from the old timing gearcase cover, the distance from the machined surface of the gearcase (Gasket surface) to the end of the stop should be measured. The stop should then be installed in the new gearcase and set to the same distance that was previously measured. Do not try to test operate the engine to establish if it has enough power. The adjustment must be set by a qualified service personnel for the injection pump.
