    I bought a rebuilt injector pump and have a problem with setting the timing. Is there a timing mark on the pump when you put a new woodruff key on the front of the pump? How does the connector for the gear align to the pump? And what size woodruff key do I need?

    Do you mean there's nothing on the end? Just a shaft and no pulley?

    correct there is NO KEY on a alh... the 3 bolt hub is a press fit...

    It's a tapered fit... extremely tight...

    The "rebuilt" pump (by any chance did you buy it from a seller in North Carolina???) should have had the hub already installed and timed... you'll need to send the pump to a Bosch shop to have it properly timed unless you're a fan of Roulette...

    Good luck,

    your correct... id also consider that a "press fit" as it requires the nut to tighten it soo much it does not slip.. much like a cam gear... but even more so on the pump it seems...

    if you wanna "prey" method it... the key way slot in the pump should be in the 10-11 o'clock position... imagine a straight line thru the pump.. the #1 injector fitting off the pump it should be dead nuts in line with...

    but yes.. the 3 bolt hub is not supposed to be removed.. when i did my disco pump on my ahu i had to remove its "hub" different then vw anyways.. most put a alh pully set up on it... i had my ahu pully modded so i could reuse the key.. and also prevented more bs of finding a later set up and thinning it out machine work to fit the newer pully on a ahu.. this was for a mechanical tdi project in my kubvan..
