[Vwdiesel] More Quantum Questions?

Pushing the Pump towards the Engine advances the timing.  Till Monday should
do it if it's going to.  Like I said, I just filled a new Filter with ATF
and ran it and that was enough.  Wouldn't hurt to pour a quart of ATF in the
tank also.

Thank you to whoever suggested I soak the IP in automatic transmission
fluid, I presume to swell the seals & stop the leaking at the cold start
lever. I'm glad I got the suggestion before removing the IP, which I was
preparing to do. I still have an electric fuel pump in line between the fuel
filter & the IP. So, today (Sat.) I stuck the fuel line where it attaches to
the fuel filter outlet into the fresh ATF fluid, ran the pump until I could
see the red color of the ATF fluid in the IP return line. Then I turned the
engine over for several seconds, hopefully to get the ATF fluid into all
parts of the IP. Wondering how long I should let it set before the ATF fluid
has minimum effect? It will have to set until at least Monday.
Second, refresh my mind. Does rotating the IP towards the engine advance or
retard the timing? As I recall, someone said retarding the timing would
improve fuel economy which is opposite the effect on a spark ignition
