[Vwdiesel] More injection pump stuff

Okay, today we finally took the stinkenklankenkampenwagen (SKKW) for a
little drive.  Turning the fueling screw out one turn stopped the black
smoke (finally!!!) Retarding the timing from the Rabbit setting of
1.05mm to the suggested .95mm brought some power back. Now the question:

This thing has NO power below about half throttle. It ain't got much
above half throttle either, but it takes half to get it going.  On my
20 mile test loop it ran fine but it was full throttle all the way. Do
I need to pull the timing back some more? (stock setting for this pump
on a 1.6 is .88mm) If not that, any ideas? I may add a bit more fuel,
but at this point, I'm just so happy to not have little black speckles
all over the tailgate...

Once again, thanks in advance for your suggestions.
