Pulled injection pump 603A

I had my pump rebuilt and noticed when I pulled the pump the assembly alignment cage 601589051400 (keeps the IP cam aligned) was still mounted. I can't seem to find any definitive answer as to if the cage should remain in the motor when installing or should it be removed after the pump is locked in.

Never mind. I found the answer.

And in case others have the same question, could you share your findings?

The Alignment Cage can be left in place with the old-style "non-dammed" vacuum pump gasket. With the new style "dammed" gasket, the cage must be removed as it interferes with the "dam".

If you remove it, hang onto it. They're expensive to replace and make life a lot easier if you have to pull the IP.

+1 The cage was still in place when I put the new vacuum pump in. The dammed gasket interferes with it, so you can either set it aside or cut the gasket to fit over the bolt.
