300 TDI timing pin question

I'm hoping this is a really simple thing that I've just haven't come across.

I'm in the process of changing the timing belt, tensioner, idle crank pull my etc on my 300tdi after having a belt fraying.

In regards to the injection pulley, I removed it by first inserting a pin(drill bit) then loosening the three bolts. Once the belt was off I removed the pully (wanted to check it over thoroughly). When I went to remove the timing pin, as per the manuals directions, the injection pump shaft rotated counterclockwise enough that the timing pin could no longer be inserted through the flange and into the hole. Is this normal to have some pressure that would rotate it out of position? Can I simply rotate the shaft by the big nut on the end until the pin can be re-inserted?

I'm really hoping I don't need to reset the timing of the pump and adjust the flange position.....

Yes. That is normal. Just rotate with the nut so you can insert the pin, and nip the three bolts up.
Eric.

Phew! Thank goodness.

So really there's not a lot of need to put the pin in until you are tightening it all up. As long as flange stays fixed to the shaft you could turn the pump 360 degrees and once the pin lines up again you're good.
