Supposedly, you rock the crank back and forth until fuel comes up, then you check the crank position when it spills.

First off, anybody ever done this?
Second, any idea of a shop that might have a short piece of injection pipe as scrap that I can make this tool out of?

I've removed and reinstalled the pump a few times on the 3B, with uses the same SST (short piece of injection pipe) as the 13BT.

In the end, I decided that it was just much easier to reinstall the IP to the timing mark.

It's a calibrated length of pipe that you're looking for, and I don't know precisely how long it should be. Otherwise, I'd imagine Central Motive Power would be able to make you that section of pipe.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
