  Ok, I'm coming from like dead head VW enthusiast land.  Trying to learn about the mechanical side now.  My head has the hump between 1 and 2 so oh well.  Thanks for patience.

The block will have a corresponding hump between #1 and #2 if it is hydraulic.

Yes on 12mm bolts.  Not sure about lifters, I suspect they are hydraulic though from talking to guy who helped rebuild motor.  Damn.

Up for sale I have a rebuilt 1.6TD full aneroid injection pump.  It is has the cold start setup of the mk1 without the fast idle setup.  It has been modified for moderately increased fueling potential.  It has the stock 9mm plunger and camplate, but has a more aggressive boost pin/aneroid setup.  It also has a single governor spring setup with increased accelerator lever offset.  It would work in a stock application but would likely be a bit smokey at full pedal and stock boost.  It is more suited to increased boost and fuel.  Price is firm at $300 shipped in the lower 48.

If your current engine is a 1.6 with solid lifters and 12mm head bolts, your head will bolt on.  This block has the piston cooling oil jets so it is able to better handle increased fueling than a non-turbo block.

Hey.  I have a 1.6 NA motor that I am planning on doing a eco-diesel type conversion to.  I am gathering up parts and was looking for an AAZ K03 turbo and saw this ad.  I think I know you from the Samba.  Would my head bolt right to this?  iIt would be testing my abilities but hey.  That would let me also increase fueling right?  Thanks

To answer my own question you can rotate the pump with the injection lines off and if the pump is pushing fuel you will see a little bubble at the delivery valve each injection event. My pump was not 180 out but I'll start a different thread to address my lumpy vanagon.

In your response you do not say anything about making sure the shaft keyway was pointing at the #1 delivery valve when setting the plunger lift so I want to make sure you really get what I'm saying.  You can get the same plunger lift reading 4 times per pump shaft revolution - once for each injector.  The rover hub/pin is set for VW's #4 injector.  In order to correctly time the VW, though, you need to set it for the #1 injector.  This means that the VW hub needs to be installed rotated so the slot is 180 from where the slot was in the Rover hub.

Does the ALH hub have only one keyway slot? I didn't ask my pump rebuilder to make any changes in this regard and my pump was installed with the ALH hub timing slot in the vicinity of the #1 injector on the VW engine. My van is gutless at highway speeds and it sounds like I need to rotate the hub 180. Is there a way for folks to know which delivery valve the pump is at without special tools or opening the pump? Thanks

Wow, you are great! I am happy timing is OK. I set pump on bench so maybe when belt was putting up it decrease a little bit from 1,54mm.

And you hear good with ticking like hydraulic lifter but they are almost brand new (maybe 15K Km). I fighted with this sound a lot but dont find what it is doing. Oil pressure is at iddle 1.5bar so good enough. I Give up about this, maybe engine is worn out because engine is from Golf Mk3 old taxi with 600K km. :) I bought it very cheap and it started excelent cold/warm. I told myself "it sound like hydraulic lifter so easy to change" but changing them didn't help. :(

And also alternator bearing is bad, hopefully i will fix it as soon as possible because while glowplugs are ON alternator is squeaking a little bit (like a bird) so for now i have taken out glow plug Relay-60. :)

As far as timing it sounds fairly reasonable.  I don't hear a lot of diesel clatter.

It could just be the recording vs. being there in real life, but I feel like I hear too much tick and hiss.  Almost like a combination of a soft lifter and an intake or vac pump leak or something rubbing or a bad bearing in the alt/water pump.
