Default Turning Up A 3406

A buddy has a '85 Pete with a 3406B. He wants to turn up the pump. Anyone have any experience turning up these pumps? Pics and details would be great. A while back on cumminsforum someone posted a link to a website that had instructions on turning up every kind of pump imaginable. Anyone know that site?

Thanks in advance

On the 3406, I thought the only way you could turn it up was you had to replace all 6 of the sleeves and plungers in the IP?

Or, I coulda posted so you would have found it easier. I also updated the 3406 section by adding another method.

I know this is an old post but I need some help. I need to reset the torque screw on my pump how do I do that? I don't know if I made the three turns out, not quite sure, so I want to reset it then start over. Do I turn the screw all the way in then back out?

I think the only way you could really reset it is know how many turns you made.

Either that or find a Cat tech or someone that happens to know how many turns out they were from the bottom from the factory
