When I put a new lift pump in my OBS, I had a little trouble getting it started but more trouble getting it to go straight. After having to redo the threads in the pump numerous times, I, very carefully, slightly moved the fuel line fitting hoping to get it lined up better and it went right in. It took many attempts to get it adjusted correctly but I finally got it.
Good Luck

When I did mine i sandwiched that second washer between the fuel fitting and pump and put pressure on the fuel fitting to keep it there. The bolt started right up but if it doesn't just slide the fuel fitting around on the hole (to keep the washer in). It just takes patience. Luckily mine went right in...

I tightened down the pump then threaded that damn nut in there. Hope that works for you too. Good luck bud.

Did you loosen up the lines that go to the rear of the heads? I had to do that on mine b/c mine didn't want to line up right and I didn't want to mess it up either.

Put a washer on the banjo...slide it through the collor...at this point i found it easier to hold the banjo with a retreivel magnet....put the second washer on ...then pull the banjo into place with a "hook" tool....then its a matter of many small turns with an 1 1/4...Can be a PITA...Greg

Leave the pump loose a few threads....so it has a little movement.
