>>>* for high fuel rate at idle: ... might the high fuel inlet pressure have anything to do? ...
Pressure has nothing to do with it.. What is happening is the computer is trying to maintain a certain speed and to do so is calling on the IP to inject more fuel. A bad chain could retard engine as well as IP timing. Timing that is off will require more fuel.

I think if I ever need a DS4 pump for some reason I might go through rockauto and pick up one of their acdelco reman units.

IIRC, I believe Kennedy Diesel and Badger Diesel also advertise a new pump as well
They could I just remembered for sure that Leroy did. I'm hoping I'm not going to be in need of one for a very long time

I haven't started the timing cover dismantling work yet
... I'm waiting for some pieces😔 ... was looking at what to do to get ready

... for Camshatf gear bolt torque to 125 ft / lb I would be a little doubtful
before 1996 was 65 ft / lb ... find also 75 ft / lb torque for this bolt... but after 1996 GM changed the values to 125/126 ft / lb

GM changed because they found that this bolt tended to loosen as DieselPro already mentioned .... OK

but did GM also change the bolt grade to 12.9 to withstand the increased torque?

Timing Chain, Cam and Crank Sprocket replaced
changed woodruff key, ....
BUT.......PROBLEM NOT SOLVED
desired timing average is always low compared to TDCO

now I have TDCO -1.58 and desired timing of 4.8/4.9

change the chain produced no effect

my old chain was sloppy near to 0.7" deflection

TDCO -1.58 is good enough, I think?
How is the truck running?

truck runs as before ...nothing changed

always a DES/ACT timing 4.9 (very low timing value vs TDC )
fuel mm 12 (too high at idle).

low performance compared to when was DES/ACT timing to 8.5/9.0
and low mileage compared to was before the problem happen

some update

tried to test CPS and it is working.
I also tested Opctic Sensor by disconnecting it and alternately disconnecting OP and CPS. some hesitation but then the engine starts. so they are both working.
when disconnected you have the codes DTC 17 OP related, DTC 18 OP related, and DTC 19 CPS related. clean DTC and with both sensors plug-in, no code is present.
I also replaced the CPS just in case....
TDCO procedures
the strange thing is that even if the TDCO value changes from -1.50 / -1.58 / -1.94 the DES / ACT timing always remains at 4.9 as if it was the maximum allowed value.

I must say it works
have not DTC 34 - Injection Timing Stepper Motor Fault. when engine is cold i can see DES / ACT timing to 7.3 then as the engine approaches the operating temperature it changes until it reaches 4.9
however ACT timing value always very close to the Desired ECM timing value. so I would say it works
