  2. Unscrew the fuel filter cap.
  3. Disconnect the engine wiring harness from the injector unit pump.

  6. Drain the fuel from the engine through the fuel gallery outlet on the return lines.
  7. Remove the end cover from the lower right side of the flywheel housing, then attach the engine cranking tool (J-46167) .
  8. Carefully loosen the injector unit pump mounting bolts about 6 mm (0.25 inch), but do not remove them yet.
