Different pumps on my old peugeots but they were cav and I set them to the info I had and they ran cr*p with lots of white smoke, then found out there was a number etched into a cap on the side that needed to be added to the book figures to get them right, each pump has a different number determined when the pump is built.
A tweek by hand while running found a sweet spot and the smoke cleared and ran much better.
A diesel fitter timed them the same as I did and made the same mistake till he consulted the cav manual in depth.
I think they were dpc pumps.

That's interesting, Dave, thank you.

That is logical: in addition to the manufacture of the timing drive system, the manufacture of the pump is not an exact science to the nth degree of tolerance.

I was anticipating having to tweak the thing once up and running, but have been trying to make sure that I have the pointer in the right kind of area to begin with Smile

I'll be doing some more work on it tomorrow - replace the timing cover, sump and the bell-housing casting. It is then ready to go back into the boat.

I'll update with the results, but it is likely to be some time before I get it all fitted up and running again.

Regards,
Terry
