injection timing yanmar 1gm10

So I'm at the boat trying to adjust the timing. Dumb question time. If the injection pump squirts fuel after the timing mark has gone past, is it retarded and I need to remove shims, or advanced and I need to add them?

Not much experience on that engine but know that is retarded. One standard shim equals one degree. Putting in shims will advance it. Makes the pump piston meet the cam follower sooner.

Well turns out it needed less shims. Adding shims moved the timing even further off. Managed to get it close (within a few degrees) and that was the best I could manage since there are no shims at all there now, runs all the way to the redline now with no white smoke, and started on the button. That'll do.

Congratulations Paul on dueling this dragon and winning.
