Are you sure you got the end of the QA shaft in the hole in the collar?
It feels like it. I have lined it up and when I drop it in it feels like it is seating. Other than feel, I don't know any other way to know if it is in the hole.KLXD said:Are you sure you got the end of the QA shaft in the hole in the collar?
I can not get the link to work,When i click on the link I get this messageTonyJetta said:Pic server is back up!
Here's beowulf's reseal how-to.
I have also had very good luck with a $50 electric pump installed between my filter and the injector pump. I found priming to be an absolute breeze when I use this. It forces fuel from the tank to the intake on the injector pump. This method has given me nearly 100% first-crank success.clannewton said:I was a little confused about where to hook up the vacuum pump. I will give this a try. Thanks
Okay maybe then I have over-tighened the bolts then So maybe I should loosen them and then re-tighten them hand tight as opposed to using the 1/4" ratchet and socket. I am wondering now if I could have damaged the seals I recently just replaced (both upper/lower)?TonyJetta said:I looked through the only VE pump document I have; no torque values listed.
When I resealed my pump, I just tightened it hand tight. No leaks 14k miles later.
Others may have some torque values for you.
It's possible the top cover is warped. I doubt it, but it's possible.SheeB said:Okay maybe then I have over-tighened the bolts then So maybe I should loosen them and then re-tighten them hand tight as opposed to using the 1/4" ratchet and socket.

All the of my hose s are looking pretty bad , I'll like to change them
Thank you Jean-L
TonyJetta said:clannewton, no. Have you read up on how to prime the injection pump?
Basically, you use a vacuum pump on the fuel return, to suck fuel into the pump. Remember this is a suction fuel system; there is no fuel pump in the tank! After the pump is primed, you need to slightly loosen the injector high pressure lines on top of the injectors. While they are loose, crank the engine. You should be able to see fuel squirting out from the loosened nuts. It may also be helpful to wrap a rag around the loosened injector lines.
Post back what you find.
