I assume my problem is on the adjustment of the residual fuel screw and on the seesaw thing that also controls idle.
My throtle lever almost rests at the pump body,because i needed to turn down the idle by all means i could find.
Also i change the indexing point on the seesaw thing because the vertical rod was out of the adjustment.
If i adjust the residual screw it may solve the idle drop but also will raise idle...
I want to get as much fuel as i can without plunger change(vnt2052 can clean the burn) but retain a good idle..
Any idea on how to do it?

Yeah,something as to make me work on it everyday...
If i screw the fuel screw more it will make it smoke more,and i dont want to. Also,idle will be up again and lower it will make me mess with screws even more...
Strange,it looks like the pump cant compensate for load at idle,even wipers make idle go up and down a bit...
When going to stop at a intercection idle will go to 700rpm and then climb slowly to normal...

Tomorrow will be buying a new temp.sender(its the 4 wire one i think) as it might be out and causing glow plugs issue.

Almost sounds like you don't have the fuel screw on the drivers side screwed in quite enough.  Like lacking 1/8 to 1/4 turn.  Also I think you may need to look for a loose wire or bad connection on the temp sender for the glow plugs.  Mine is around the coolant flange on the Rabbit, 1.6 engine.  With that wire on and a warm engine the glows don't turn on.  They draw lots of amps and may be setting up the alternator to come on in an instant if anything else is going.
GP's on all the time is going to burn them up too.  Not so good.  Maybe a 12 volt measurement check on the most accessible one after about 10 seconds to see if indeed they turned off. 

Very odd behavior, But hey it's a VW, what do you expect?

Hello.
Regarding charging components: its a 90a alternator,new. Did that already with the previous one.
Battery is a new 90a too.

My guess is that the problem might be on some adjustment as it started to do that after some more fiddling with the pump in order to get the most out of it.
Idle is fine,but only after all power consumers are off or not in need.
If i turn the power steering with the car stoped the darg of the steering pump will cause the idle to drop,but as soon as its not in use idle climb back to normal,around 800rpm.
Higher or lower idle wont matter,it behaves the same way.
Glow plugs work longer than 10s,and work every time i switch the ignition off.
Dont know if its normal in that model,its a passat b3 1993 1.9ecodiesel from factory,latest idi engine model before the arrival of the tdi engine.
Other than that it works fine,its just annoying to pull the cold start to bump the idle a bit every time i start it...

NAPA did have a composite gasket.
 Rock auto sold the same  one and listed that the holes for the cylinders were too small for the pistons.
How much for a aaz valve cover?
Because i was in a hurry and didn't have the 1.9 valve cover, I just put the 1.6 head back on with the reused gasket and  newish prechambers.

it should work but the lines may not first quite right. because a 1.9 has a taller block. the lda is not easy to swap. 1.9 injectors will work too, theyre two stage so theyre quieter like you said

I ordered one from the dealership.
 Had no idea it would get here this fast. 2 weeks.
 they must have imported it from Canada.
 $75
i'm probably too late to help you, but i have a few aaz valve covers and i would sell.

napa can definitely get aaz parts, i've ordered a valve cover gasket, precups, and a headgasket from them before, but you need to have the part numbers because they may not have the stuff listed, that or the sales people don't know enough to differentiate the parts from a tdi to a aaz. napa has an "altrom" line of parts that carries lots of vw parts.

a lot of the aaz stuff is available here because of the industrial and marine uses of that engine.
