vwdiesel.com looks good, but lacking in some respects - ie, priced at $25 on one page, 
and $29 on the order page. Also, no contact info, nor info on specifics of kit (who 
made by, type of material, etc).

Does your kit come with any instructions, or info as to o-ring type, etc?

Okay, will do.  Should the NA pumps (these are the ones without an 
aneroid-looking thingie on them) and the TD pump have the same depth 
to the distribution block? 

What about stretching of the o-ring; also, do you coat it with some kind of grease?

Alright then, guess I'll spend some more time with the two NA pumps till I'm sure 
of what my results are...

Talked to a guy the other day, the closest thing to diesel service is sixty 
miles away, they'd want $450 to rebuild it, which is reasonable, I suppose,
but totally unaffordable at this time - I really can't even afford to make the drive 
right now, my heftiest yearly bills always come during the winter months.

Thanks for the tips!
