Update: I checked what I had....039 in. Reset to .038 (.95mm) Starts good, smokes a bit for a moment but clears up , smoothes out in about 45 seconds ,no smoke, good throttle response. I am happy. I ran a can of Diesel Purge through for good measure. Then I read here that my injectors are probably worn out (164K mi.) :-( Oh, well. More fun. Someday. Till then, I fix some of the other things. Thanks to all. Todd P.S.- How do I access the Vwdiesel Archives? When I go to the vwfans.com site, I find "under construction" Thanks, Todd Todd Braman <thaanow at yahoo.com> wrote: Date: Tue, 2 Mar 2004 21:25:15 -0800 (PST) From: Todd Braman Subject: Re: [Vwdiesel] Remember smoke? To: Vwdiesel at vwfans.com CC: Ok, so this is really embarassing. When I compare it to a "6", it is a "G". Thanks for your patience. So just to double check: Bentley is right, it is not a "yellow dot" pump, but he is mistaken at the 0.86 mm (.034 in.) optimum setting. That seems to fit. My plan (when I get some time and borrow the dial ind. again): Put the dial indicator on it to see where I am now. Then advance to(or possibly stay at) 0.95 mm and try that . If it is in the suggested area ( .88 - .95 mm) I will leave it and be happy with the way it is running now which is pretty good. This is progress. Now I am going to have to fork out for new tires and an alignment and some cosmetic fix-up. Thanks to all, I appreciate the assistance.

It's suggested to go to, I think it's .95mm if .88 doesn't give the proper performance. I've come across probably the most 107 - AG of any one pump. They don't time as a yellow dot pump. :( Since you're timed at .86, you can easily advance even more and yes, rotating the pump body toward the engine advances the timing. :) Loren _______________________________________________ Vwdiesel mailing list Vwdiesel at vwfans.com http://www.audifans.com/mailman/listinfo/vwdiesel --------------------------------- Do you Yahoo!?
