If you're getting fuel to two injectors you should get it to all. They all get their fuel from the same place. There's one hole in the distributer shaft that feeds all four cylinders. Analogous to the center pin on distributor cap.

I don't think the QA motor could bend the pin.

I don't think a bent pin would go into the collar but if it did it would probably bind. The pin is a close fit in the hole.

You could take off the top cover and rotate the QA shaft by hand. It should turn freely against the spring's resistance.

I think, and hope for your sake, that you just have the QA in the wrong place. Have you tried repositioning it?

I have. I think what happened was the pin was to the right of the collar. So when I turned the car over the cam in the pin pushed it? I don’t know. It’s not bent much within the adjustment range of the QA. I’m really puzzled by the not getting fuel to all cylinders though. I had someone crank the engine over while I had the pump open and watched To see what happened. It spun, I don’t remember if it moved back Andy forth as much as it should have. I wasn’t as familiar with the pump as I am now. I’m just going to get another pump I think. Maybe take this one apart to see what I find and for fun. Is there any core value to a non working pump?

I've got a good working 10mm pump from my 2003. It had 329k on it when I switched to an 11mm. Still working good. I have it wrapped up in plastic bags in my garage. $200 shipped it's yours. Or I can drive it out to you Saturday, I live in Redford.
