2. The cam rotates and the pump plunger covers the feed port. The spill valve remains open and the injector valve is still on its seat.

3. Further rotation of the cam pushes the plunger towards the end of its stroke. The colenoid now closes the spill valve. This causes the high pressure fuel to lift the injector valve from its seat and injection takes place.

4. The plunger has now reached the end of its stroke. The colenoid has opened the spill valve and the injection process is completed.

The commencement and ending of injection can be varied by the computer control of the colenoid and spill valve.
