Re: 7.3 - injection pump gear adjustment
Well the truck is running and you know which way you need to turn the gear. Take off the little cover on the front, mark the gear orientation. Now take off the IP and tower, loosen the IP nuts, and turn the IP so the timing mark lines up. MAKE SURE the gear does not move except for the distance it moves when you turn the IP. Mark the gear orientation again in case you bump it on re-installation, and put everything back together.
No need to go through the whole timing fiasco to just move it or or two teeth.
