      im guessing aviator gray? but its more silver than gray. The pictures are almost at dark. I have this thing on my camera that makes it look not so dark.

      Thanks for the good words!

      This is a good place to get super cheap parts from:

      http://www.dieselvw.com/1619FrontSeal.htm

      Keep in mind the parts are VERY cheap and generally from China. However, there's times when cheap will do. Just don't send your pump there for a reseal. If you are ready for a full pump rebuild and want to keep the car for a while, get a real Bosch seal kit.
      Once you go "clack", you never go back.

      But I do like the car and I do want to do a mild restore on it one day. Early Jetta's are kinda hard to come by in Florida.
      Pics are ok.

      Good luck with that. Florida salt air does do a number on paint, but that looks pretty straight and a nice restorable vehicle

      Loosen and remove the "OUT" banjo on the IP. Fill the IP with diesel or better yet ATF. Reinstall the "OUT" banjo onto the IP. Let the glow plugs warm up before trying to start. If the engine does start and run, make sure to increase the engine speed so the IP can pull a vacuum on the inlet side to pull in the air and diesel through the clear line from the fuel filter. After your engine can idle on its own for some time, shut it off. If you engine cannot start after sitting for a quite some time, even with warm glow plugs, more than likely you will need to reseal your IP. You can replace various seals on the IP without fully taking it apart. That way, this will buy you more time and you didn't change the internal pressure settings of the IP.
