[Vwdiesel] VW Parts Place catalog

I have been getting their catalog for like 15 years,
it is a nice source book to keep around.
Pretty good place to deal with over the years, prices
are fair.  I have gotten many hard to find parts from
them and the guys on the phone KNOW VW and diesels.

Only 1 bad exp. I had with them was swapping a TD
injector for a rebuild one with them.  It said 130 bar
on the injector body they sent me.
I know that does not mean it was not rebuilt to 155
bar.  I sent it and my other 3 true TD injectors to an
injector place in PA to have them all checked before
starting my rebuilt motor, that injector they sold me
was indeed 130bar, so the place re-shimmed it for me
to 155bar.

When I called the Parts Place a few weeks after
getting the injector suspect injector to ask for
something back they said if you would have sent me the
130bar mistake, they would have swapped it, ?????? I
was hoping for a different answer.

Anyway, glad I had it tested, more money to the VW
obsession gods I guess.
