My AFC diaphragm won't come out. It moves up and down fine, but won't come out. What am I doing wrong?

Can you spin the nut off the top of the pin, then you can remove the diaphragm and look to see if something is hanging up in there? Air tool etc to spin the nut off.

The pin that rides on the eccentric fuel cone is known to be sticky, I suppose it could be stuck making it hard to pull the diaphragm and fuel pin out. That pin does come out, I have not done it myself. It looks like the cover is press fit to me.

Better AFC removal photos and 3200rpm spring How-To,

You should be able to oil the pin from the afc side. With the cover off the pump, work the little pin back and forth. It will free up.

Oh trust me - I DID try to free it but felt I was going to break something!

It's free, but not by me.....

I took the pump cover to TRIPLET DIESEL INJECTION on Waco drive. Steve Baugh fixed me up. It took about 20 minutes and I was heading back home again with the pieces. They'll be getting my business again in the future.

Good to hear! Was it the eccentric cone or the pin that rides on it that was seized?

The eccentric cone slid up and down fine but would not come out, so I couldn't tell where it was "clocked" at. The small horizontal pin, about 5/32" diameter, was frozen solid. I cleaned everything up and oiled the pin, and also oiled the eccentric slide bore. Everything seemed to be working fine.
