  First, post the last 3 digits and letter of the VW part number 
(068-130-XXX X) so we can tell you what pump you DO have.
Then make sure it is indeed timed right, cold start knob in, check 
the lever on the back to be sure it is indeed all the way to its 
stop.  Make sure you don't have the pump 180 off, etc.  
  Did you dink with the throttle levers on the top of the pump?  
It almost sounds like they're on the shaft wrong and that would 
make it race with no respose.  If you removed the lid then you 
may have had something bind or catch and that's holding it at 
full throttle.
