Second, Yes the "switch" (really?) or adjustment screw on the injection pump (not fuel pump!!!) allows you to adjust the amount of fuel that can be sent to the engine.

Instead of giving no useful information that is based off someone else's experience, in a post that contains almost no punctuation, give something someone can use.

For instance, if you do need to turn up your fuel to realize the gains to be had from a turbo, check this link out:

"Fuel injection pump adjustment article"

But be warned that you should have an exhaust temp guage before you ever touch the fuel adjustment screw or you could burn up your engine fairly easily. Especially, if you do not have a turbo!!!

Basically, you gave no useful info and misinformation that could ruin this guys rig if he were dumb enough to do something to his rig based on what you said.......

End Rant.

To the original poster.....sorry about my rant. Good luck with your rig and just don't act like a 16 year old kid with your rig and you will get tons of usage out of it. My bad if I came across harsh.....

Thad

Thanks Thad!

Wow, great attitude for a "seasoned diesel veteran" to have.
