  I guess once you pull it once, you can put a mark on the pump pulley, it
turns at the same ratio as the cam.  Of course the cam pulley isn't keyed
so marking it is kind of pointless.  There's probably already a mark on the
pump pulley, but a little paint makes it easier to see.  :)  Of course you'll
have to pull the cover in order to set the cam timing, which is part of
the timing process, even if it's a tuneup.  :)
