Re: Fuel pump

Is your fuel pump a mechanical or electrical.?
Push rod problem if mechanical fuel pump.
try fitting a pressure gauge at discharge to carb, you are looking at around 2 psi ideal.

Re: camshaft profile

Have been "told" the 5T cam denotes its a truck cam and good for the low down torque.

Re: 8BA Style Timing Cover Queries

I'm sure that hole should not be there also as per above.
As for the fitting of this bolt in this location it seems feasible and will refit when time to assemble and check on set up.

Re: bent axle

Not good Brian, hope none of your important bits suffered any serious damage. Vehicles able to be repaired damaged bodies not always.
