be patient, number your injector lines with tape and a number!!!!, it should take 3-5 hours out and in. dont tighten the banjo bolts too tight on the injection pump, i had to buy a 2 just because i stripped the **** sucker...other than that its pretty simple

I just got done watching all of the videos, it doesnt seem "hard" more like tedious. Dropping the key definatly has me nervous.

oh ive done about a hundered or so, id love to come and help, but im swamped the next couple of weekend. here's some pointers, make sure that you barr the engine aorund so that the pump shaft position has the keyway pointing at 12'oclock, that will greatly reduce the change of dropping the keyway into the gear housing. when you take the fuel lines off, they come of in 2 bundles, (3 lines per bundle), just look at the way that they are routed off of the pump, you'll see the ones that the tied together, dont remove the fuel line isolators, just take out the intake plenum cover bolts that hold both the isolator, and the cover down. you dont need to remvoe all the cover bolts, only the ones that hold down the fuel lines to the plenum. use a socket, and about a 8"-1ft. extension to get the to the inner gear housing mounting nuts. take your time, you'll do just fine. they look scary, but they really arent that bad.

I just did mine a few weeks ago. I have a puller and all the tools. I live in Fairfax, VA if you want to drive down this far, you can borrow the puller and stubby wrenches. The next weekend I have free is May9th.
