As long as you use a return regulator rather than a deadheading regulator the pump will be fine. How it will react to diesel rather than gas is a whole other story though.

Yeah, I used a return regulator on mine, and haven't had any issues with it.

.010 TDI pistons are at the machinists getting coated. 2 weeks or so and the block is going up. Get the machining done when it is cold and when spring comes it will be on.

question:
         Is it a problem to use the newer tapered style small end connecting rod with the older style piston that can take a straight connecting rod?

The shop I use usually has my things back in less than a week.  Never more than two.  Why the 5+ months?

He is good and lazy. Everyone brings stuff to him and he gets done what he feels he can make the most money on usually *my opinion* It is race season and those guys get the nod, and I bet he charges them quite well when they bring him something on Monday and want it by Wednesday. I called and he said it is in the plans, whatever that means.

So I brought my stuff back from this guy. Over 2 years and nothing is done. I have another guy a little closer and he will be getting the stuff. Bad news, he honed my block and coated the pistons *which I didn't have to pay for since it took so long* but he found what looks to be a wrist pin scratch in #3. So I will have to use my other block and find some bigger pistons for this one.
