Somerset?! God no! :lol:
Debs is working most of the weekend, so if you're around, that'd be great. You can come see the workshop!

Sorry mate, the weekend happened and as usual, loads was on.

She is busy with school stuff most of this week, snatching weds and thurs evening which are supposed to be for me to go and do things :evil:

So I'm on childminding all week. Saturday and Sunday are already filling up, it's possible but doubtful to be honest. If sunday is sunny I'm car booting - A better way to waste a decent afternoon has yet to have been invented, sure dear I'd love to spend my day off in a field, haggling with people on the chance that I can clear a small section of the loft and make maybe £10 an hour in the process :roll:

Next time, I think I might go straight to the tip, then spend three hours down the pub before returning home to glory in the fact I sold the whole lot and made £40 (which i got from cashpoint on the way home)

hmmm a cunning plan.

I've digressed a tad, but to summarise, maybe on the weekend or next week any good? :wink:

Whenever you're free buddy. The car's useable in the meantime so it's not a major panic
Oh, bring your boost gauge when you come too - might be worth playing with the wastegate while we're in there..... :wink:

This is one of those funny T25 - T3 things isn't it? - I've rather had my fill of working on inaccessible T4 engines.

No, even easier than that - it's a Passat, so everything's at the right angle, with a big engine bay 8)

Ok managed to get a pic of the timing with the Crank set spot on.

Where do you get that view Mike? I've re-tweaked mine and it's better, but still not right :cry:

Hi Rich

This is a bigger view of the same area, Looking straight at the end of cambelt .

Image

The hole is actually in the Injection Pump case at about the 2 O'Clock position. I couldn't see it myself so just stuck my phone in the general direction.

It is a 6mm home in the ABL engine/pump.

Thanks buddy
So:
1) I take it that the hole's supposed to be completely centered at TDC?
2) How did you find TDC?

I don't think the AAZ has that arrangement, but anything's worth a look!

Just had a reread as you must have been typing

you have an AAZ and dont think it has the hole, you could follow this

You have to set crank to TDC via hole in gearbox, notch in flywheel.
but you will need a Dialgauge to get it spot on.

Been too busy getting Myrtle off for her new exhaust :D
And toying with keeping the Legacy GT instead of the Passat...... :twisted:

Sorry man, keep meaning to get down but life is getting in the way.

How about next wednesday evening?

Taking any reference from the locking pin hole may not giive the desired results, the tolerance of fit and slop on the hole leaves a lot to be desired.

However - if you want to set the pump up on the locking pin....

when timing a pump up on pin alone I tend to pre-load the pulley against the locking pin using a 19mm spanner before I nip up the bolts on the pulley slots.


so doing the belt goes like.

crank on TDC notch in bell housing (vehicle in top gear)
pump pulley locked and slotted pulley bolts slack
cam locked with 1/4" (6mm) plate
cam pulley bolt loose 1 turn and pulley knocked off taper using 6mm hole in back plate

tension belt
tighten cam pulley
use 19mm spanner to turn pump main shaft clockwise against locking pin and tighten slotted pulley bolts
remove locking plate and pin
check belt tension

It's ok - you're a busy bunny! But yeah, next Wednesday should be good - I'll put you in the diary :)
Might be worth bringing your boost gauge while you're at it...... :wink:
