Cam shaft lobe for fuel pump

Does the cam shaft on a new body style block have the lobe for a mechanical fuel pump? I am not sure of the year of long block that I got but am not getting any fuel pressure. Pulled the freeze plug and installed a new mechanical pump. It will run on either, so all electrical should be fine I think. The new pump did have the plunger with it so if the lobe is there it should be pumping.

Yeah if there was a freeze plug in there you do not have the lobe for the fuel pump.

Re: Cam shaft lobe for fuel pump

Water under the bridge, I know, but couldn't you generally tell if there's a lobe there by pulling the plug and just looking down there while you turn the motor?
