So I have my pump and injectors off being rebuilt at the moment. I was installing new GP's and decided to clean the bores and threads on both the GP and injector bores. As I blew air into the one of the bores, the engine rolled over and the pump gear moved, obviously. I lined my witness marks back up, but it shouldn't matter anyway, right? Gear rotated 20 degrees or so counterclockwise. Just checking that it can't somehow jump time.

Nope. I tried it on mine when i was putting it together just to see if you could. Furthermore, you have gravity on your side in this situation.

Thanks for the reassurance. I was positive that it couldn't, but I am making a lot of changes at once. Should I have any issues getting up and running, I didn't want that in the back of my mind.

Other than a little air from having the pump off, should roar to life just fine.
