      Yep. theres a screw on it, find it and slightly turn it to the left. Dont do it too much as you might melt your pistons. oh, by the way, dont mean to be a dick, but if you need further help then this, buy a damn bently and learn yourself. or better yet, when you run across a problem, try and figure it out in a few different aspects before needing to get spoon fed your answer. have a good one

      you'll never get the exact setting back by eye balling it, even using a mark it will still be off from factory.

      Once you shim the governor and turn up the fuel, I doubt you'll ever want to go back.

      Turning the fuel back down isn't rocket science. You may never get it "absolutely" where it was, but running lean in a diesel is running cool and slow.

      A simple search on here or even google would avoided this question. You got an answer with constructive criticism, sure may have not been needed, but it was to only help you for future reference. How are you supposed to be able to figure out something if its all gettting "said spoon" fed to you? Nice generalization of me though, I helped and didnt even throw out a swear or name call yet people like me are giving this forum a bad name? yea right.

      your the one who claims you can never get the settings back to stock..

      if you cant set an idle screw, and a fuel screw, then you have no reason working on an injection pump..

      to clarify 'correct setting' as i worded it; is the factory stock setting. not all screws are made to be played with. its not like a carb at idle, stick a exaust gas read out in the exaust and adjust your fuel mixture.
      the pump is set at factory and will be impossible to get stock setting exactly back with out a diesel tech.
      ME, i wouldnt recommend 'tinkering' with that screw.

      i find myself messing with every single pump on any car ive ever owned..

      there is much to be desired over the stock settings..

      usually i find that the idle screws are set too low or high..

      Why you still bother to help so many of these sorry excuses for enthusiasts I just don't understand....Oh ya that's right it is amusing!

      Turn up the fuel, turn up the boost, and let her rip!

      Aircooled, you can stay in the slow and stock lane, if you are afraid of making adjustments, then stay out of someone's thread who isn't

      because there has to be SOME voice of reason in all these retards over here.. if we all just shut up and let Aircooled guide all the newbs, we would be SCREWED..

      plus, it IS entertaining to stir the pot sometimes over here!

      seems to me if your adding more fuel to get more power you -will need- more lube in the fuel, so double the add to fuel. more fuel goes thru the pump so more lube is insurance.for injector pump.
      -added, if you adjust fuel; your in the ballpark, get a tech to fine tune it adjusted for power and mileage. this fine tune can save you and prevents running for more power and being out of tune. can also save parts.

      this guy knows how to rock up some AMAZING crack..

      because his answers are ALWAYS OFF THE FRIGGEN WALL.. lol

      more lube in your fuel because of more power? for real?! are you serious?!

      you dont need more lube based on your power.. you just need enough to keep the pump happy.. the pump doesnt care if its pumping 4hp worth of diesel, or 400hp worth of diesel, it still needs the same amount of lube.

      sure, take it to a tech, who may or may not even know as much as YOU DO..

      but tuning for power and mileage means to tune it, and run a tank thru it, see what your results got you. then re-tune as necessary.. you CAN tune these things to have grat power, and insane MPG as well..
