Nope, just ordinary pump diesel.... the blue smoke I saw might be due to the WD40 I sprayed into the IP to lube it while it was bleeding from bone dry....

I’m going to ask my mate to come and time it with the proper kit once these injectors are back... then there should be no excuses for smokiness...

once your injectors are spraying properly, you won't have any blue smoke issues. you can easily hammer mod your way to close enough to drive it. also you cant get the timing set properly as everything within VCDS requires it to be running and to operating temperature first. you have some time.

sorted now! ��

Blue smoke gone, white smoke gone, no smoke to be concerned about at all now.
The old girl seems to be running great with new nozzles....

Glad I asked here, thanks ��

told yea!
lesson learned here, when storing your injectors, put then into a glas jar with diesel submerging the entire nozzle.
if they are stored on an engine that has fuel in the IP and ran when last shut down, they are usually fine with a once over with a cleaner in the fuel system.
