      Well I'm taking everything apart again tomorrow, I can't remember if I properly torqued down the timing tentioner on Saturday.
      It's been bugging me since Sunday morning, can't take it anymore... not driving it until I check. I really think I did, I remember torquing everything else down... but that. ugh

      that sucks, if it makes you feel any better I broke the oil filter housing. there goes $120 on a piece of plastic and one of the bolt heads for my diverter valve is stripped so i cant get to it. real piss off

      I checked that nut and put it all back together. All of four hours of work plus time to make sure I have enough coolant.
      My filter housing leaks, don't know why, I'll check next oil change.

      Bolts like that are a pain, did you spray them with a penetrating oil?

      edit: The nut was fine.

      Any Winnipeg Dubbers wanna do a favour for a dubber a little outside the area? I know it's a long shot but I need some parts from Western Turbo Diesel. Problem is they're open Mon-Fri closed weekends. I'm pretty well only off on weekends. If somebody would be willing to pick up and pay for roughly $40 in Misc rebuild parts I can come up Saturday and/or Sunday to pay for and pick up the parts from you If you're a nice guy and want to give me a hand shoot me a text and let me know and I'll give you the deets on the parts etc you'd be asking for.Cell 1-Eight0Seven-220-058six (formatted so bots can't read it)

    13. 05-10-2012 10:22 PM #663
      Anyone offer yet? I don't know if I'm available Saturday but Sunday is possible.

      What needs to be installed?

      Only if its powered by the smoke I exhale It's an injection pump for my 92 Turbo diesel Jetta.

      Cars were originally built with hemp, and run by hemp seed oil tho.

      Yeah that's a painful drive. I did Vancouver - Winnipeg two years ago in 22hours. Never again.

      And with the TDI you never got any breaks, because you never had to refuel!
