Hello All, I had an issure with a slow starter. Narrowing it down the offending part i replaced the cables, better grounded also, though finally tested a spare i purchased and Lo, It was the starter. The offender actually  could have been used as a musical instrument as it rattled at the bearing end so much.
Vacumn, I have a 91 jetta Gl that sat for several months
in the winter as i waited for warmer climes to change a
water pump, new timing belt also, Now i don't seem to
have any vacumn. Bentley seems to be hiding the info
on it though the archives suggest a simle rebuild
This is all good though in the back of my mind i am wondering if the "key" securing the intermediate pulley
could have not locked in and therefore the sproket spins on the shaft with the vacumn issue begining there.
which way would yall verify this. pull the upper t bellt cover or remove the vacumn producer looking for rotation.
