Hi Loren, brake rebuilding update. My caliper "un froze itself", the car did 
sit for awhile
in the northeast winters. so no surprise. I will rebuild the calipers and 
have already
procured a donor cal from the bone yard so i'm ready to go on the fronts. I 
have seen
a tool (at a tdi gtg) that allows one person to push new fluid through the 
brake system
via pressurized tank, and thus bleed the brakes. autohasaz doesn't sell it. 
is that
something you're familiar with. next, the owners manual calls for dot 4 
fluid, yet my
stock of dot 3 meets the specs required. BTW sunday a rear brake cyl let go 
so the
system is stressed.
Next, in hagars recent Hillbilly tuning he listed you as a contributer to 
the information and
that this info was to be used for tuning 1978 -1984, NA and TD motors. Would 
there be
much difference to apply this to a 1991 td (jetta). The engine runs good and 
with cold cable pulled put (advanced) and i never see smoke when i mash the 
So i thought i could advance the timing and increase fueling some, change 
the intake
filter and check the injectors for optimum performance. It doesn't quite 
idle smoothly
so i suspect an altered injector spray pattern
