Re: Replacing fuel (petrol) hose from injector rail to injector

Nobody knows how Bosch fitted the hose they may have used some process to bond it but general common sense says fit a hose clip. I can't believe you are bothering arguing about it. Don't fit one if you don't want to but please don't promote such bad practice as others may copy you. you may not find ...

Re: Replacing fuel (petrol) hose from injector rail to injector

I think you would be mad not to fit a fuel clip. I'd take those bits of metal off or the clip won't fit well.

Re: Replacing fuel (petrol) hose from injector rail to injector

you may need to cut the hose as spigot is barbed , just be careful not to score the spigot too much it's aluminium so cut gently repeatedly so you cut just a bit at a time.

Re: Replacing fuel (petrol) hose from injector rail to injector

cut the metal ring off with wire cutters and the pipe pulls off. then use standard fuel pipe clips. it's just a barbed spigot underneath.

What is the gauge and sender. electric gauges can be inaccurate. better to fit a wet gauge and repeat.
Does sound like it needs a rebuild.

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

10 mins is not enough for hot oil but your figures imply it's not too bad or it's a wiring fault so I'd say safe to give it a run for 20 mins and test again if not too bad get it stinking hot and test again. Does seem like if we wait long enough the NLA unicorns will come back to graze. In the meant...

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

I just checked min order is 1000 sets at 75 euros a set. You would have thought thats not a huge sum for a Company like Heratige or Brickwerks. Can make 100% profit on that.

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

Strip it and measure up. even if main bearings are NLA they may be good enough to reuse. Mains seem to last well, built like brick "pooh". People tubo these up to several hundred BHP

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

Big ends and bearings are often ok. so even if line bored you might be OK reusing bearings.
Cam bearing usually knackered.
I Rebuilt a DJ with all new bearings but still has lower oil pressure than I'd like, only just in spec and I think it could be tappet bores worn. nobody sleeves them it seems.

Re: Changing the rear (pulley end) crankshaft oil seal (DG)

I just use a large screwdriver and brute force, you can punch the seal with a pin punch or screwdriver too to distort it as you can see which helps to break the seal to the block https://itchyfeetuk.files.wordpress.com/2020/04/p1060088.jpg and fitting new... https://itchyfeetuk.files.wordpress.com/2...
