THD fuel pin install on stock pump

Postby ggreenall90 » Mon Aug 07, 2017 1:39 pm

I installed THD's fuel pin in my stock injection pump and now when I shift from 3rd to 4th the truck will lug. Pump is completely stock other than the fuel pin and its a 5-spd getrag. Do I need to mess with the star wheel? Don't wanna turn the pump up at all.

I didn't when I installed the same fuel pin, and my pump is stock as well. I've got the same trans as you, though I've got 4.10's and duals.
Did you remove the plastic washer and bolt the pin right to the diaphragm? Or the little brass tube broken or loose where it bolts to the pump top? Did you face the ramp towards the front of the truck?
Just throwing out ideas,

I'd drop the star wheel a turn and see if it helps. I installed an M&H pin with factory settings and my truck bogged like that. Moving the star wheel down helped.
