I would say if you are bothering to check it then you may as well replace it.  :smiley:

Whats the purpose of lining up the arrows at the beginning of the DIY guide? I thought they were just for doing the timing belt etc and I'm not sure why that needs doing just to pull the fuel pump back?

Possibly something to with compression on the fuel pump cam lobe, but I didnt set it on mine or steves and had no problems.

I don't suppose anyone knows the torque setting for the bolt that hold the fuel pump to the engine? Gonna be doing this inn a few week and I wanna make sure I don't over tighten them.......which I have a habit of doing with my sausage fingers.

10nm is general setting for bolts of that nature

Just 'tight' without over tightening  :happy2:

On the US forums it's stated as 7.5 ft lbs...
Do not overtighten as you'll strip the threading...   :scared:
Without traction power is nothing!
