    You can see it doesn’t go in quiet straight and that’s with a bolt without a lock washer or anything

    You need to get a tubing bender & tweak the tub around the button head fastener. DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT try to bend it while it's in the block, you will crack the tube or it will break.

      FYI: Magnum 5.9 blocks do not have a provision for full pumps. Yours in a LA 360 block. However, demonracer has the answer to your issue. Good luck.

      I can’t remember what year exactly but some I think 2 years had a fuel pump added and the la timing cover is the same size
