Re: Ohh that's not going to buff out

I've always felt like the most everything about the mk4 jettas were a little better than the golfs,
except that it's a sedan.

Re: Ohh that's not going to buff out

Good save picking up the pieces of that (wtf?).
I've never seen so many things wrong about a tailpipe. :lol:
Exhaust, bumper, barber shop sign, rain gauge - all in one.

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

It came with an alh intake too. Just found a post where andrew gives the part number for the oil pump bushing, https://www.jimellisvwparts.com/products/Volkswagen-VW/Passat/BUSHING/5134960/056103541.html better pic https://www.brickwerks.co.uk/oil-pump-bush-general-vw-use.html One of the few discuss...

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

I know this has too many possible factors going on, in addition to me not knowing how the engine was really put together, IN ADDITION to me not being willing to just start taking things apart to measure gaps. Even just plastigaging the cam caps - after reading posts about people cracking caps like i...

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

I ran the same filter in the previous engine and it had no oil pressure reduction.

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

Pentius "UltraFlow" PLB3569
I'm thinking it doesn't put up much resistance. Pretty large. Despite the fancy name, it's Made in China
My 1.6D filters get put on a little more than just hand tight, I use a filter wrench.

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

The new rubber seal in the vac pump gear looked much better, tighter, but didn't change anything significantly. I dropped the idle a bit and am surprised the oil pressure stayed the same. My dynamic numbers are about the same as the OP in this 5-post thread https://www.vwvortex.com/threads/1-6-diese...

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

Reading up on removing cam caps, might be a bad move for ME to start playing with those things. Reading up on oil pressure vs oil flow also has me thinking I may be wrong about this being a real issue. Now most of this is just hear-say, as I didn't even remove the head: I bought this from a guy who ...

While waiting on the little vac pump seal, I been searching for a 36mm oil pump and those things are practically NLA. there's pretty much ONLY this https://www.partsplaceinc.com/vw-diesel-oil-pump-20712/reviews/ I did find something on ebay but the part number I can't cross-reference anywhere https:...

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

Central Florida on the East coast. Cars rust from the top down quick. I'm surprised that most people here still don't understand how rust works. My efforts to thwart rust without doing a full paint job has ended up with ospho, cosmoline or epoxy resin/putty. Doesn't look nice, but it holds the rust ...

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

This is for the scirocco. I wouldn't say it's a nice looking car. No a/c and a bit clunky but it's pleasant in other ways. No strange smells of decomposing plastics, everything is pretty much fossilized. The 86 golf isn't plated, just stored in the back waiting :roll: Thanks for the deal link, but t...

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

It's tough having to mess with older cars, but being able to legally use the older engines and gearboxes is gold is this crazy car-world we live in. And yea, shredder scrap is going for .10/lb here. Bad news for old cars, bad sign for the Dollar. That engine is said to be bored .30 over and have for...

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

Those are some great endeavors. Mk2 golfs have gotten rare now. Someone did a recent thread about that on vortex. IMO should have never stopped making mk2 golfs and mk4 wagons! (lol) With the idi and mtdi diesel power plants, those platforms became the last of best for people that want the "lux...

Re: Rebuilt engine low oil pressure

Not having any engine building experience, I didn't check anything involving plastigauge or micrometers . Just ASSumed that this longblock was done and went straight into the install (Doh!!!) . Reminds of the saying, "hurry up and fuckup". :lol: The 10-12 psi I get at hot idle is also with...
