Alan, as I recall from the teardown, the cap bolts hardly showed any wear, and that was after years of driving. However, the pin was worn on one side of ONLY one arm for some reason. Anyway, after I added the washers, I pulled the cap of the pump and turned the gears to make sure the cross pin was hitting the cap bolts.
