one week ago today i confirmed in a personal email to you that my 86 jetta
gli (rd motor) has an in-tank pre-pump.
i replaced both pumps myself <2 years ago.
i still have the old ones to prove it.
the fuel supply chapter in my bentley manual (for 85-87 golf/jetta) makes
numerous references to the care and feeding of the transfer pump.
there are photos and illustrations that show the in-tank transfer pump in
the 8v, 16v and (turbo)diesel(!!) models.
is this still a random assertion or do you have to see it to believe it?
