TIMING, GEAR TRAIN & FRONT COVER
The gear train lies under the crankcase front cover. The
gear train is simple in design. The idler gear (2, Fig. 3),
driven by the crankshaft gear (1), drives the engine
camshaft gear (3) and the injection pump gear (4 or6,
depending on pump). If equipped, a tachometer adapter
(5, Fig. 4a) mounts to the injection pump drive gear
access cover (6, Fig. 4a). The tachometer driven by a
slot in the end of the injection pump camshaft for
engines equipped with Robert Bosch Model MW Fuel
Injection Pump. For engines equipped with UTDS*
Model 100 Fuel Injection Pump a plastic tachometer gear
(5, Fig. 3) meshes with the injection pump gear (4, Fig.
3) to drive the tachometer.

The idler gear is supported on a set of tapered roller
bearings. The camshaft gear is keyed to the shaft and
held in place by a press fit. The injection pump gear (5
or 7, Fig. 4 or 4a) is fastened to the pump shaft by
means of a hub.
For engines equipped with UTDS* Model 100 Fuel
Injection pump, the tachometer (6) is fastened by two
nuts and a thrust plate, as shown in Fig. 4.

The Crankcase Front Cover (2, Fig. 4 or 4a) serves
many purposes. In addition to housing the gear train, the
front cover carries the water pump (1), lube oil pump (3)
and fuel injection pump (not shown).
