IDI Engine / Re: mk1 rear tran mount where to buy?
« Last post by sgnimj96 on Today at 09:19:19 am »
The only time i've broken that mount was when I jacked up the transmission without removing the bolts.     I wouldn't think they would normally break unless something is out of place or you're other mounts are toast.   Mine is a diesel,  maybe others are different.
 
 Anyway, I hardly ever buy old vw parts from autozone, etc. unless I'm worried about needing a warranty (which isn't often).  There are lots of places;  find the correct part number and you can search more sites.

Maybe the 4BT is the same.



I need the bracket at is around the delivery valves. I think it holds the throttle cable?

Anyone have one?

You can just buy the head and plunger combination and not replace the entire pump.  You know that right?

There's some rebuilt pumps on eBay I might just do. Half the price a Giles. If I had a td maybe it would be more worth it. Eventually swapping something bigger in it but not for a few years.

Well I might see if I can find a used functioning pump and see. I'd like to get a Giles but not sure if I can find or afford one right now.

Yes Giles still builds pumps. I agree with the snapped plunger idea.

I'd recommend not turning the pump over any more until you've completely removed the head to see what's wrong in there. You may still be able to dodge a bullet.

Plunger could be snapped without the dial indicator showing it.  It will still ride up and down with the camplate lifting it and the dial indicator exerting spring pressure to return the snapped part.  It just wouldn't pump fuel because it would all leak out the break.  You'd have to pull the head out very far for a camplate roller to fall out of place.  The little shim at the end of the plunger is the concern.  If that falls out of place, it can put uneven pressure on the plunger foot and snap the plunger.
