p-pump conversion

hey guys im about to convert my truck and was wondering if anyone has done this and could help me out with any suggestions or tips to make it as smooth as possible.

id really like to know the best way to get the cam gear off and back on without hurting anything and the best way to time the pump in.

any help would be great thanks guys

Well in my case I had the cam out and took it to a machine shop and got them to press it off. To put it back on you need to bake it in the oven at 375 for 30 -45 min. then install it on the cam. It helps if you have the cam in the Refrigerator over night and I perfer the frezer. You will want to have a couple of blocks of wood on hand and a 2 or 3 pound dead blow hammer.

I put mine in the freezer too! The girlfriend was all like, "Uhh, whats for dinner??"

Then she found the gear in the oven. Priceless!

Are you getting the mild steel lines? I heard big lines on VP injectors will give you a weird idle. The stock size lines on a VP injector will idle a lot better, but I do not know first hand. This is something I read on another board.

I have .75 lines.
The truck is a daily driver that is not finished the pump is out to the shop and will not be back until after the first of the year. If I was going to a 13mm pump I would want bigger lines they have .093 .120 and .187 that I know of and I wanted mild steel just because I was told they are having problems with the stainless cracking. I do not know if that is true or not but I will paint mine to make it look more like a 12V to the unknowing.

We are old enough that when I do something like putting the cam in the freezer she will just ask what I am up to and how much is this costing?

What are you guys running your timing at? Also, there is a fitting for the oil feed that you are supposed to run to keep from over supplying the pump resulting in too much pressure inside the pump and improper operation. That is the only issue that we ran into on my friend's truck.

For the cam gear, I personally pressed mine off when I did mine, but the cam I installed switched over to a bolt on style cam gear instead of press on.
