My neighbor recently got a caterpillar backhoe given to him with a 3054 cat in it that wasn't running, he decided the cause of this was the injection pump and changed it but he did not time the engine before removing the pump. I believe it is a stanadyne pump I can get the serial number if neccesary, but would anyone have access to the correct procedure for timing this engine and the engine to the pump. Much appreciated.

Ryan, the 3054 is a Perkins badged CAT, which you may already know, used in 416b and c's along with others. It can have a bosch, lucas or stanadyne pump. I have replaced several, though ususualy pre-time before removal, I can fax you the procedure, or, even scan and e-mail you if that would be of assistance. Please e-mail me and let me know if I can be of help. The lift pump requirement spec is during a 10 second crank to build to 6-10 psi, however I have seen several shut down valves fail also, even with voltage to them. Please let me know if I can be of assistance, take care and good luck, Matt.
