  2. Rotate the crankshaft 720° and measure the three cam lobes height. If the cam lobes are excessively worn, replace the rear camshaft.

NOTE

The high pressure fuel pump cam has three cam lobes. Cam Lobe Height Standard (New): 0.236 in (6.0 mm)

  1. Set the No. 1 piston at top dead center (TDC).

  1. Tighten the fuel joint pipe bracket mounting bolts and the fuel joint pipe nuts to the specified torque in the numbered sequence shown.

NOTES

  • A crowfoot-type special tool increases the torque applied by the torque wrench. Search Torque Specifications on the iN for details on how to recalculate the torque wrench setting.
  • Failure to tighten the fuel joint pipe nuts to the proper torque will cause a fuel leak.
  1. Connect the quick-connect fitting and install the quick-connect fitting cover.
  2. Set the power mode to ON, but do not start the engine. After the fuel pump runs for about two seconds, the fuel line will be pressurized. Repeat this two or three times, then check for fuel leakage.
  3. Install the high pressure fuel pump cover and torque it to 12 N·m (9 lb-ft).
