I think so -- no way to get the IP back far enough to clear the mounting hole otherwise. You can try, but it weighs quite a bit, and wrestling it in and out is a pain.

Everything I've seen suggested it could comeout without pulling the housing. Mercedes doesn't say to pull the housing... it should come out.

I didn't think a diesel injection pump would be an "FIP". I have always seen on the news groups the reference "IP" for a diesel injection pump. Maybe it should be "DIP" =0)

Well, I will be calling it an IP. If you can figure out how to set the Instrument Panel to 24* before TDC, let me know .

All I need to do to it is get the old gasket out, the new one in, and make sure the timing marks line up. Will it hurt anything if some little flakes of gasket get in the IP mouting hole on the block?

I think the abbreviation "FIP" was used before fuel injection was commonly used on petrol/gas engines therefore the term "fuel injection pump" would refer to a "diesel" fuel injection pump. Is that a "DFIP"??
Stricly speaking gas engines don't normally use an injector pump. Usually a pressure pump and a fuel distributer.

Nevermind I just found a quote from gsxr searching that states the opposite. Thanks Dave.

FYI, a tip is to set the injection timing to the far side of spec advanced. Meaning if spec is 24 ATDC +/- 1, set it to 23, not 24. You can pick up a smidge of power & MPG this way. I went 2 degrees advanced on my car and it made a noticable difference in MPG and low/mid RPM power, but I did get some smoke at full throttle over ~4000rpm which was not there before. I plan to set it back to only 1 degree advanced but haven't gotten a round tuit yet, as usual (I keep getting square and triangular tuits for some reason.)
