I tried to advance my timing today for the third time and I must be nuts. I adjusted the three bolt that hold it to the pump, the bracket bolt, every hardline but the injector lines, and i think some bolts i probably shouldn't have touched. What am i doin wrong?! is there some kind of trick to it. Am i just not being forcefull enough with the pump. I thought i was being pretty mean.

Mine will not move eather. Don't worry about it unless you really want to take it completely off.

What it most likely means is the gasket is glued down on both sides real bad. If you force it enough it will move. But it will probably leak real bad from the gasket afterwards.

Various Options for Moving the Pump

Some guys have used a ratchet strap to pull it in towards the head. You can also make a tool to fit the holes on the bracket behind the pump head by welding some short bolts to a bar and use that for leverage:

It won't leak after doing that, either way.

from what i hear it will smoke less and help mpg. This is because the fuel is injected earlier and burns more completely inside the cylinder. On the flip side your cooling system will run a little hotter. As long as it is in good working order i wouldn't think it would be a problem unless you have heavily modified you engine.

Ps: I've heard it lowers egt's too.

It gives you top end performance in exchange for bottom end performance. Pull a little bit less on the bottom end, more on the top. And everything else spoken is true too.
