Installing New Lift Pump

Tomorrow am putting a new lift pump on a 1998 Rexhall Motorhome with a B5.9 Cummins Turbo Diesel. The pump is mechanical and all I need to know is whether the gasket should be dry or "Permatexed"

I always permatexed them , but in the shop I figured that the chances of me being the one who would have to clean off the gasket to replace it next time were thin.
You will want a friend with you , you need to feel through the opening in the block for the lobe on the camshaft and have your friend roll the engine over, by hand ; batteries disconnected; to find the low spot on the cam.
Otherwise forcing the pump lever in and trying to line up the bolts at the same time will make it a very , frustrating job.

Sounds like a lot of fun.... i did'nt think they sold permatex any more. Use the red atv, easy to remove if needed and good for high temps. I use it on my ex. manifolds on high hp engines ,works great....

I have a bucket in my tool box, probably like the good old white wall tire cleaner that they outlawed because it was bad for the environment , but I'll keep using it till they find me.
