|lg1969||The bolt you referring is a hold down bolt. You suppose remove it and use a long bolt to hold the fuel pump rod up so you can install the fuel pump into the block without fudging around. Once you installed the pump you remove the long bolt and the rod will slide down. After that install a short ("1/2) bolt to seal the oil leak without jamming into the fuel pump rod.|

Should only have about 3/8 inch movement and may have some preload on high po pumps.

Take the plate off, your problem will be a lot easier fix with it off.

you could also remove the plate and remove and check fuel pump push rod

Also when you get it loose, put a little grease on the end that goes toward the cam lobe, it'll stick and hold it in place while you put the pump in.

Hope that helps.
