I have been contacted by some owners of OLD  VW Rabbits and Jettas .
Condensing the procedures for getting power without smoke  --- may be the t=
hing to do.It is a lot easier to see the mistakes with a LOT of hindsight. =
Like Earl Logan used to say ----it hard to remember you are there to drain =
the swamp if you are up to your ass in gators.

Firstly ,   you fiddled with the thing and it still smokes and lacks power.=
 Then it may be time to apply        "  Injection timing of old Volks --- b=
y old Volks. (hillbilly volks).# 1. "      ( thu 31 july 2003 ).

Why does all the NORMAL things fail ?  like taking it to the dealership. Th=
ey have to go by the book.  Money  ,  lots of money. If I was the dealer , =
I would send the pump and injectors to a repairshop  --- got the drift ?.

I promised to say why I became so good at fine tuning Rabbits in only 5 yea=
rs .    LOL by  fiddling with them every day for hours.And using this place=
 every day. Began fiddling with diesels in 1945.

Finding a cheap replacement pump ?  easy at junkyards and private sales.You=
 do not NEED to use the exact type for 1.5L and 1.6L engines.   any of the =
bosch VE pumps will work , for a billy.    Remember a quote from dealer for=
 a 1882 Rabbit 1.6L NA Bosch pump (NEW) was 5000 dollars Canadian ---  that=
's what set me on fire.

Before doing anything drastic ---test internal pump pressure.(if wrong timi=
ng does not work)    Pump RPM versus pressure as follows.      500   2.4  t=
o 3.0  bar       750  3.5  to  4.1 bar        1000     4.6  to  5.2 bar .  =

PS:   One more big THANKS  to Gary from Orlando - he got me started.
