So you have this OLD Rabbit -- 1980 -----1986 range , and you really don't
know condition of nozzle's and pump.
What to do first ? .
Remove top timing belt cover ------and expect to drive with it off for a while.
Remove Plug ---big plastic plug from tranny.
We are almost ready to time from scratch. (this is timing not TUNING)
For "TIMING" from scratch and Hillbilly TUNING --- all tools can be made by a DIY
at little cost.( not a dime cost here).
You will not need a dial indicator.
The timing part is a procedure for getting camshaft , crankshaft and injection pump
lined up at the starting line (gate?).
If you can manage , install BRAND NEW nozzles first. ---if not , at least clean them.
Loren told me to get new nozzles and it can not be overstressed how much better
a set of good nozzles are to work with. Injectors are very sensitive to rust ---they rust
if not stored properly. So if yours are old ,take them apart and inspect.
Working on step # 2. it may follow.
PS: This is the time to change timing belt if you are not sure of condition.
