Timing

welp, recently spoke w/ the [apparenly] only dieselshop local to me. i mainly called to inquire about bringing it in for getting a timing bump, as this is not something i want to try myself, nor do i have the special tools needed.

so this shop (which has a pretty good name) quoted about $400 to do the timing - they want the pump pulled and put it on the bench vs in the truck. that sound right? why that way?

oh, that's plus $175 to pull the pump off and reinstall if i don't do it. so, timing would be a $600 job.

seriously.

that's a bunch of clams to shell out for a motor that i'm not even sure is healthy (blow-by stories).

thoughts?? anyone local that can help??

laugh Sucker born every second they are just checking! Pump doesn't need to come off. You can do the timing in less than an hour if you know what your doing! Find someone with the tools and supply the food! Or drive out to my place! :Thumbup: :smoke

I've heard of this before actually. You still have to re-time the pump when you reinstall it, so your doing 50 extra steps. For that price and the reassurance of not going to that shop I'd buy the tools and do it myself. Or find someone who will rent you the tools, like this guy

yeah, so that's the part i didn't understand. reading the tips and threads on timing, i thought you basically HAD to time it on the motor. i kinda feel like calling them back and asking WTF, Over?? :mafia

i've been asking around to everyone i know that's mechanical. we've got a PSD club here and i'll have to ask those guys to search harder for someone that knows the 12v.

or, worse comes to worse, the rental thing may be the way to go.

why's everyone gotta try to snowball you??? :squish

They may want to advance timeing internally on pump which makes things easier if you take apart and change timeing often. But if your gonna stick with one timing dont do it that way.

I have timed several with the pump on the truck. I have had no problems except with the 95 model trucks, some reason they will start to bust up around 2600rpms. I live just east of Charlotte if you are interested.

i hear it's about 2 hrs to get to east side of charlotte from here. thanx - i'll keep that in mind!! :Thumbup:

yeah, ideally i just wanted to pay someone for their time but can't seem to find anyone local.

or, if i'm looking at spending a few bux, maybe i should just get the tools and do it myself.

someone on another site mentioned that they bought the tools for like $120. i can't find anything that cheap. anyone got a line on the tools required?? best i can find is $236 from snapon. anyone else?
