Re: Did Vw Line bore there own stamped DJ rebuilds?

I agree, it doesn't look brilliant. Grey "high" switch is 0.9 bar, so the later fitment to stop customers bothering the main dealer asking for free engine rebuilds, so the buzzer willl remain silenced The 2 bar at 2000 rpm actually looks good compared to the 0.3 bar on "idle" reading, which is what ...

Re: Did Vw Line bore there own stamped DJ rebuilds?

The year doesn't make any difference, except to what the factory originally fitted. https://www.brickwerks.co.uk/brickwerks-blog/vw-t3-oil-pressure-switches/ The grey one is the lower 0.9 bar rating. If the DOPS system is sounding the buzzer at 2000 rpm and the idiot light is coming on at hot idle, ...

Re: Tachometer ‘82 Air cooled

Not really, you can try and get what I got off ebay or similar. They just need to be able to work on a 4 cylinder engine

Welcome

On the air cooled you will probably need to run a wire from the coil direct to the tacho as the "green" wire will probably not be there.

Re: Did Vw Line bore there own stamped DJ rebuilds?

I'll ask the question again.... what rating is the "high" pressure switch on the back of the engine ? That's the one that will be the trigger for the buzzer. If however the oil light is on after 15 minutes of idling from cold, which might be what you are saying, then you have low oil pressure before...

Re: Engine only runs under too much advance

also known as a dial gauge

Dti method is superior, but if you don't have one available (my assumption) then the alternate can work.

Re: Heads Off Due To Pressurised Coolant

There's no difference between the bolts for the 1.9 or 2.1 engines that I can see. One should be 31.9mm the other 45mm

I suppose the only other option is that the threads in the DJ crank go deeper.... was a/c only fitted to the 2.1 ?

Re: Heads Off Due To Pressurised Coolant

I was just checking on Etka. One can only hope it isn't the remains of an old broken pulley bolt.

Re: Engine only runs under too much advance

Here's what my approach would be - as it is quite difficult to assess when the valve is actually opening do the measurement from maximum valve lift: Inlet opens 5 BTDC Inlet closes 34 ABDC Inlet duration = 219 degrees Point at which max lift is achieved 109.5 degrees after 5 BTDC so 104.5 degrees AT...

Re: Did Vw Line bore there own stamped DJ rebuilds?

Can you be a bit more precise on your oil pressure problem. The mention of the oil light flickering when hot and BOD may be indicative of a number of things On the BOD side, what switch is fitted ? 0.9, 1.4 or 1.8 bar. They should be colour coded, and the switch could be out of spec On the flickerin...

Re: 2.0 CU Engine Oil Warning Problem

Lucky guess :wink: ... helped by the fact that I have air cooled and water cooled. I'm chuffed that it's sorted for you, that'll let you enjoy the van a good bit more. On the fast idle I'm assuming you are on standard twin solex. In which case it's a matter of making sure there are no air leaks and ...
