I am not asking whether it is what people rocomend. I know it is not by the book. I understand the hub on the pump will be mis-aligned in relationship with facotry procedure, but the whole pin-in-hole thing is just because most people changing a belt doesn't have access to the DTI procedure.
I haven't heard anyone claiming the timing pin being more accurate than the DTI-procedure, but many claiming it is not accurate enough if it is not done by DTI.
My suggestion above would be just as good as any, using the DTI, correct?
It will leave me with a mis-aligne hole in the hub, for using the timing pin procedure, which I am ok with.
It will allow me to put in a boost ring while the pump is out.
It will allow me to change my dubious pump for a known good pump.
It will NOT allow me to align the cog wheel for the one tooth out at this stage, but soon enough the engine will go out anyway and the pump hub misalignment can be fixed then. After summer.
So what is wrong with my suggested procedure. Why will it not work?
