But it wasn't completely tight and did have movement. I proceeded to getting it out after that. I then removed the plumbing from the old one and then decided to replace all of that also. That took up a lot of time to install the plumbing on the new one to mimic the configuration of the old one. Installing the new one today. I talked to an older gentleman who was very familiar with these V92's and he said to just use a pry bar to pull the pump to the drivers side of engine, pretty much as far as you can with bolts somewhat loose to set the lash and it will be fine. Your way sounds way more accurate obviously, and I think I may be able to sleep better doing it your way. Thanks again.
Yes the lash is pretty tight. The gentleman you talked to is pretty much right, you have to pull on that pump pretty good with a prybar to get the lash that tight. It is a good idea to check, I just have a cheapo dial indicator from harbor freight that works well. I am planning on upgrading the dial indicator at some point but it has worked well, I also used it to set all the injectors and check that the valves and injectors where in the proper position when doing all the adjustments and the engine is running great now.
