Good idea. Start there and it will only get better!

If there is diesel fuel in the cylinder, it will run, not smooth at all. No power, no get up and go, sluggish feeling.


However, before you take the front of the engine off, recheck everything that you did. You may be able to loosen the Bosch VP44 where it is and make it run better.

I know its way off because we had the gear off from the pump shaft and we did spin the motor with the pump out while trying to get the fan clutch off. So I'm sure its way off time

You may find it is only a tooth off. If it was 180* off you would not be able to get it to run.

What is the actual process for setting the timing do I have to make sure that 1 of the cylinders is at top dead center and the keyway on the pump is at the top and then match the timing marks on the gears?

Pull the cover off the front of the engine and line up the timing marks like the drawing I posted shows.

So i dont need to worry about any cylinders being at TDC or the position of the pump? Just line up the gears and put it together?

You need to make sure that cylinder #1 is at TDC, otherwise you will have to remove the front cover again. You can start the truck without everything hooked up, you just need to make sure that all the oil, coolant passages are plugged before doing this though. This will tell you if it will run or not.

Yep. Line up the marks and the keyway will be exactly where it needs to be. If you had a way to determine when #1 cylinder is firing then you would need to have the piston at TDC, otherwise just line up the marks.
