[Vwdiesel] The importance to lining up oil pump gears with markings on ea...

Thanks all, I will give them a try and see how she runs after I get the new coolant line in and the fuel tank back in.  It would only be a temp. setup, so if it seems to run ok, I will go with it until I get the other injectors back.

I will let you know.

And of course, you can increase the amount of fuel on the pump that turns out to be an issue. However, I'd agree with Loren, it's probably a minimal amount of difference anyhow.
