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 ...

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.

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...

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
