Default The arrows on 2001 camry oil pump

Do the arrows on the oil pump drive and driven rotors have to be timed in any way and if so how? All I can find is they face inward twoards engine block. Just want to be sure they do not have to be indexed in some way? I just replaced the formed o ring and appon asembly I saw the arrows yet can't determine what or how they index so i just put it together and it runs just makeing sure i did not miss something in this reguard. So if they dont index then why are they there? Other than face inward?

The outer gear is going to walk around the inner gear. With this, change any tooth alignment the two gears had at one time.

Orient the gears as you describe.

A suggestion is to oil or grease lube the gear faces and circumference to improve pump priming. It has happened, pumps fail to prime.

So it doesn't matter how you orintate or ix the pump in reqaurd to the arrows on the gears? So why are they there ? Anyone have a factory service manual im sure that will give the story of the arrows.
