IDI Engine / Re: Would You Run This Cylinder head?
« Last post by libbydiesel on Today at 07:07:18 pm »
If someone said they were selling me a new head and then sent that, I would be right pissed.  Send it back and get your money back.  If someone gave me that head for free, I would replace the pre-chamber inserts and valves, maybe guides. 

A little while back I got some new inserts from the UK.  http://vwdiesel.net/forum/index.php/topic,36096.0.html

IDI Engine / Re: idle adjustment after fuel screw adjustment
« Last post by RunninWild on Today at 06:11:39 pm »
Yes turn it counter clockwise about 1/8-1/4 turn and see if the idle settles down.

On that note does anyone know if its possible to calm the idle down from turning the screw in? My giles pump is as far in as i can get it without affecting the idle and im not getting enough fuel for my Holset. Sorry to thread jack but i figured it was relevant to the topic...

IDI Engine / idle adjustment after fuel screw adjustment
« Last post by zuhandenheit on Today at 03:05:35 pm »
I'm currently running an IP bought from another member of this forum. It was resealed and possibly rebuilt (recalibrated etc) overall. I have a number of questions about the pump, but to start:

The seller mentioned that he adjusted the fuel screw, and I suspect that this is why I have a high and sometimes hanging idle. I haven't done this nor the idle adjustment myself and am not exactly sure how to proceed. I don't yet have a tach (I've heard there are smartphone apps -- I'll look into this), so I can't say exactly where I'm idling, but it is definitely too high, and again, sometimes it hangs even higher after revving the motor and between gears.

I've looked at some diagrams and I believe that idle adjustment is made with the screw on the back of the pump, on top of the rod that attaches to the cold start lever. Is that correct? Can I turn this screw with the motor running to adjust idle?

Even if you could get the motor running with this head, you would never feel good about it. Send it back. I've had my share of bad experiences buying parts for these motors. Unfortunately there are a lot of unscrupulous sellers.

I'm going to guess:

Jack of Ohio. Why do I say THAT?
Because he bred me just like this on one years ago.
Ruthless preek.

Name names... or give us a good hint. Who sold this head representing it was new? A vendor to avoid.

Yeah definitely a bummer, thanks for the input though. Honestly after typing up all of this I've more or less convinced myself I don't want it. So unless a few people have an argument for keeping it, the question becomes where can I get a good head?

Bummer about that head.  I'd return it in a heartbeat.
