Hello folks, I have a stupid question here. When I removed the fuel pump and the rod before I did the cam, I did not pay any attention to how it came out. Duh on my part. My question is, when I put the rod back in and the fuel pump, I am assuming that the stem of the fuel pump will go under the rod, am I correct on that? Your responses are always well appreciated, Thanks again....Dave

Put a little stiff grease on the rod to help hold it up so it won't slide down and put the fuel pump arm under it.

If it´s a chevy V8 the arm on the pump goes under the rod.
Look to see if there is a bolt on the front of the block corresponding to the pump rod.You can take this bolt out and install a longer one that will hold the pump rod up.
In the attachment it´s the ugly bolt nearest.
I was unlucky mine is not drilled through, the motor was to be served by an electric fuel pump.

It'll help to put the Crank at TDC on the compression stroke of No one. That get's the pump cam lobe away from the pushrod.

I Agree

Henry Highrise took the words out of my mouth. A little wheel bearing grease and your good to go. I also put a dab of white lithium grease on the end of the rod for some prelube.
