    Don't forget.. your gonna need a "puller" to get the gear off the pump drive..
    You might wanna go look at the front of the pump before u start making plans..
    The gear has 2 threaded holes in it for "a puller"..

    Its made to be serviced w/o removing the rad.. "IF" u have the proper puller.
    I doubt seriously, a steering wheel puller will fit.. & "that's" what most people think of when u say "puller"..
    Have u asked around to find out WHY that engine has sat around for so long?? Bad bearings, low compression??

    Bad gasket on t-stat housing. Couldn't keep coolant in it. It's a residential stand by genset, so not really high priority for the owner.

    Regarding the puller, i have several different ones - 2 jaw, 3 jaw, flat bar, etc, including some that i have made for other things. Will see what it takes.

    Well, I am able to report good news.

    In the absence of a matching plug. I was able to remove the shut-off solenoid and then removing the plunger and spring from it, and reinstalling the solenoid, I was able to to completely fill the injection pump with the primer pump.

    I then was able to start cranking the engine to purge the fuel lines to the injectors. And then just a small shot of ether got the engine running.

    The mechanical shut off functioned as it should. It appears that the shut-off solenoid is weak somehow. Will order a replacement.

    Thanks again for the help.

    You like the fact that there's about 60 unnecessary posts wasting everybody's time?
