, can someone confirm if a 1.5 pump of an '80 Rabbit will work on my '81 1.6?
IMHO no need to time it with dial indicator. ---Book figures will not do
--because the two engines are different.
Install 1.5 L pump in normal fashion. Then turn it as far retarded as you can.
Clean up elongated holes with a rat tail file.---you can not retard it too much.
Start it up and let us know----what is does.
Only two things to worry about ---- fueling and getting injection point too
If it does not smoke on start ---turn fueling screw in (clockwise) 1/4 turn.
How do I know ? -- I did my 1982 1.6 L NA Rabbit exactly like that. --shit
it works better than it ever did with the 1.6 pump.
1.5 pumps are not hard to get. VW 068 - 130 - 107 A.
Wish you luck and have fun ---- its a piece of cake to do. And like Loren said
do not over tighten belt.
PS : Do NOT use cold start if not needed.
