Setting up an oil pump

Good day everyone

I am trying to revive a 1995 400L 2x4 it has not run in 5 years. The oil pump cable is rusted and the spring is broken. I am installing new parts and my question is how do I set it up. Do I turn the screw in all the way till it's closed and then back it off a couple of turns to open then hook up the cable.
My son had a book at one time but can not find it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i believe the screw you are talking about is the air bleeder screw,take it all the way out and let the oil flow until you see no more bubbles,then put screw back in. after you have the cable installed and your idle set,then at idle adjust the pump ,you should see to slash marks (one on pump body and one on control ),line those up and you're done. you should still run premix 40 or 50 to 1, until you verify that the oil pump is working,usually 2 tankfuls and measuring the oil tank start and end, will give you an idea
