I would do the wooden dowel down the lifter hole and use rubber bands to hold them up and just pull the cam shaft out. Just on a side note I do not remember the size the dowel has to be but you will cut a slot into the end with a band saw or hack saw so that it will compress into the lifter.

I use 1/2 inch wooden dowel rod and just tapered the end and tapped it in the lifter or tappet

Since it's out i stood the engine up on it's end.. pulled the cam out, found 3 bolts finger tight, gaskets came off really easy, it was supposed to rain good again today so spent all morning cleaning and sticking heat/sound barrier on the floor boards.. got everything but DS from the seat back done.. roughly 36sqft stuck on..
Ordered new balancer.. be in tomorrow
Tried checking timing... Rolled the crank 35 both directions backed 35 then 70 the other way...could not find the TDC hole...
Hopefully Engine will be sitting in the truck tomorrow night

Did you have the marks on the cam and crank gear lined up?

How are you setting timing? You have a P7100 pump, right? The cam pin hole to set TDC should be directly behind the timing pin when the motor is at TDC with the cam and cranks timing marks lined up with one another. Once that is done, you can set pump timing by measuring plunger lift and using a lift to timing chart.

Yes that's correct,
Pump is pinned, I'll back the Engine 17 before TDC and tight the pump gear.

I wanted to know what it was before I pulled it apart as my TDC was broken at the time I advance timing an additional 5 over what ever the previous person set timing at

Yeah new radiator, ect stay cooler now as well
Egts run 200 hotter while cruise.. 1600rpm seams to be the "on/off" point of the power band, not much lugability, at 1700-1800 I can hold it to the floor and it makes out around 1350, the 66/74 doesn't seam to choke out either like it did with the 62/68 turbo,
Going to bump timing to 22 today,
Gotten 7.8/8.3/9.6/9.5 mpgs to the tanks since back on the road
