  I'm must be missing something.  Two of the nuts for the injector pump are 
welded to the bracket so you have to loosen the bolt.  The bottom one is a 
locked in place bolt and you do loosen the nut but you go through the 
pump gear/pulley to get at it.  Both of them in fact.  So not sure to what 
you refer.   Easiest to tell the cam is right by the lobes on #1.  :)
