Keeping the larger diameter drive on the 300 LR pump is the best way to go.  I had a AAZ 1.9 pump on that I transferred all the LR parts into and used the older style 17mm shaft & pulley and then it's pretty much a bolt on (doesn't have a lot of miles on it yet).  But I will be doing exactly what you are suggesting as I just bought a ALH and I have a 300 LR pump that I will be fitting onto the ALH.   I assumed you just had to machine the adapter on the pump and/or pulley just for line-up for the timing belt.   There are posts on here that I will be reviewing as I know others have done it.

Vanbcguy -  what do you use as the actuator - I understand there's a control box that moves the actuator, but what is actually moving the vane control.  Just curious.  I've read your posts about it, seems to work very well.

It would be nice to setup the needle valve to be adjusted by the throttle cable.

It looks like the dawes device will keep it at full boost until roughly 10 psi depending on the way its set, it can go lower and of course higher.  Until that time it will be full on.  the needle valve is there to adjust that if needed.  I might mount that so it's adjustable inside the car as suggested.  then if you want to set it lower you can for highway and increase for city, maybe....

I don't know, I'm going to try and and see if it works.  I should be able to tell if its working or not by the way amount of vacuum the control can receives.  If I test it as is (original ALH setup) and see what the vacuum is doing, and then swap over to the LR pump and the dawes device I should see it either react the same way or do exactly as you've described. 

The diagram shows a needle valve as well that will be helpful to set the can to the correct amount of vacuum to start with.  I'm hoping it's going to work as it's much easier.  I don't have a background in electronics, so I can't setup what you have, which is much more precise control.

It's not going to be setup as a 'boost' can.  It will be essentially what the ALH already has, minus the electric control valve - n75 I think.  Vacuum will still control it for the most part.  what the dawes-device does is a boost starts, it starts adding air to the vacuum line, essentially starting to back off the vanes.  The sight shows a very linear backing off of the vnt control.  I think for the few dollars I paid for the device, it's worth a shot to set it up and see if it works as expected.  At full boost the vanes are backed all the way off, as no vacuum is present.

I was wondering how I was going to run the turbo.  I think I'm going to try the dawes-device and keep the vacuum can and see if I can run it manually.

above site has both running with the original electronic setup and adding better control with dawes-device and also running a complete manual setup with no electronics interference.

I'm hoping disconnecting electronic pump, (going Mtdi), removing EGR valve,and running the turbo in manual setup above in 2001 ALH, basically keeping everything else connected will not interrupt too much of the rest of the functions of the tach, speedo, door locks, glow plugs, etc.

will do, thanks.

thanks for that - shouldn't hurt the setup, I plan on using a dial gauge anyway to get it started.  Do you know how much has to come off the hub on the LR pump to have the vw pulley work properly?

I've also been wondering how to get the turbo working properly-although I should have more room to set something up to work the vanes once the cooler and EGR valve are gone.

I've got a new pump for my alh and I want to change seal before installing it.  I know they some with a tapered mount for the timing gear and I have to pull this off to replace the front seal.  I'm just wondering how to re-install the timing gear mount.  Since it's tapered, does it need to be pressed on an amount so it stays in place?   Or mark the shaft before removing so you know approximately where it was and press it back on to that mark?  (not talking rotation wise, but length along the drive shaft)

I have one other quick question, what's the best way to drain the coolant in an alh?  Just pull the bottom hose?

Actually, it's page 3 -
How easy is an ALH m-TDi?

I will be trying this- removing all the egr system and turbo control - installing a 2252 waste-gated turbo and hoping all other items are retained so the tack and glow plug systems are maintained.  The vss should not be affected (hopefully).  I'm not too concerned about an engine maintenance light staying on - I'll likely pull the bulb if that is an option.

Will be reporting back as soon as I have a Mtdi pump to install.

sorry, I see there's a thread on second page covering this subject.

I've moved up to a newer car with an ALH in it.  I have one question as I'm not-so-good with computer controlled cars.  I a 99 Golf with a 1Z or AHU that is mtdi that is a blast, and easy to fix any issues.  How does a ALH car respond doing away with computer controlled pump and installing a mtdi.  I will likely get rid if the egr stuff as well - cooler and egr system.  Will the glow plugs, speedo, tack, etc work if a mtdi pump is installed?

Just for info - Mk3 Jetta/Golf/Passat with 02A tranny (4 cyl in Canada 93-to maybe 97?? unsure of end year) came with smaller flywheel with the exception of the VR6. This does take a 215mm clutch - my alignment pins were a bit beatup, so I had a minor mod to make to get it to fit,   I hoping the difference in size (I had a 228 setup previously) with a 1.6TD will not cause any slipping issues.  Anyone need a 228 pressure plate and friction disc that maybe has 20 k miles on it?

I have had a mishmash of clutch parts I bought online - flywheel, pressure plate and friction plate.  I had a problem and the teeth on the flywheel, about 9 of them were broke off.

I had a spare flywheel, a proper vw replacement (SMF), but of course the friction surface is smaller than the friction plate and pressure plate.  This is a proper clutch setup with flywheel bolts to engine, not the early style.

I know the larger sizes as they are all over the net 228mm seem to be popular.  I need to know what the smaller sizes were as the friction surface on the flywheel I have will work with sizes under 222mm .   Did they come in 220 & 215mm sizes?  I actually order a 215mm and today I get to see if it was the right one....
