Actually...
Pulling and/or replacing a CAV pump on a 3 cylinder Ford is Very simple.
Remove the throttle rod and shut off cable.
Remove the fuel, injector and leak-off lines.
Remove the cover plate on the timing cover.
Inside, remove 3 bolts that bolt the timing gear to the pump shaft. Remove the 3 bolts that bolt the pump onto the engine. The back one needs the right combination of extensions and socket to remove it.
Remove that one first..
Now just pull the pump.
The pump shaft is indexed to timing gear and can only go on one way. The gear is held captive by the timing cover. It can Not skip timing.
Reinstall pump and lines in reverse order.
Note the timing marks on the engine plate and pump.
Set the mark to 0.
Done.

Hi UD,
I agree. It is simple if you know what you are doing. But I've had more than one try to wrestle the pump out without pulling the gear. And in one case the timing was off by 2 teeth when he got it back together.
Sheesh!
I guess I will need to start saying something is simple - If you have an IQ that is above room temperature :)
