I don't think that method is necessarily wrong. I think your pump timing setting process should give a successful reading, assuming you are using the method of loosening the four fasteners holding...

Be careful with that way of thinking. Are you familiar with how tight the torque on the front crankshaft bolt needs to be (much like on the D5252T which is highly similar) and what happens if the...

Max governor RPM (aka "high idle") should be something like 5000 rpm to the best of my memory. So, a little more than you are seeing now, but not a big difference. Maybe a small enough difference...
