    Yeah, I've never liked the 3 spoke. Now the same thing in 5 spoke on the other hand...

    And so the saga continues, this thing must be cursed.

    Changed the injector lines this morning...and it runs BUT.

    It's running on 3 cylinders and is making a LOT of noise, almost like a rod knock. Take a normal running diesel and multiply the ticking noise it makes by 10.

    It's also belching grey smoke out of the tailpipe.

    I can't look further in to it right now as I have to help a friend buy a new car today. But in any case I'm stuck far from home without a car again

    I really have to get this thing on the road so I might pull an all-nighter.

    Any tips are greatly appreciated!

    Well...I'd hate to admit defeat. But in case I can't get this thing running right this weekend.

    Does anyone know a good VW diesel mechanic in the Portland area? I really have to get this car back on the road!

    Thanks guys. I hope it doesn't have to come to that. But if I can't get it running right Sunday I'll have to...

    Mind you, I've never set the injector pump lift in my life. But I found a nice tutorial online and followed it to the "T". Could be the cheap dial indicator I got on ebay?

    And I'm absolutely sure the timing belt is installed correctly, I double checked, quadruple checked all the marks and then turned the engine over by hand at least a dozen times to make sure nothing was hitting.

    If I had any diesel knowledge I would gladly give you a hand. Wishing you luck on figuring it out.

    Thanks Gordy! I've been without a car for too long now. One way or another this thing is getting on the road.

    I took the bunny to see Double J Motorwerks. Sadly what I expected is true. It has a rod knock.

    So I'm out a bunch of money and back at square one. *sigh*

    Anyone have a GOOD diesel laying around? I've gotten so much practice lately I can probably do a full swap in one day.

    Oh man, that sucks. Rod knock in a diesel is super loud. I wish I could offer something, but all I have are cores.

    Yeah, I have 3 cores now...guess I better look for a good diesel re-builder.

    No chance of getting my money or even some of it back. They're not returning my calls, goes straight to voice mail.

    My fault for trying to get this thing back on the road quickly...$980 lesson.

    Still no word from the people I got that motor from. I've sent them a final email.

    If I don't hear back I'm sure going to put the word out on who these 2 are.

    Some good news though, the person I bought the bunny from says the extra 1.5 I got from him should be a good motor, not a core. I'll have Joey at Double J check it over and perhaps just install it.

    Time is of the essence now as I'm running out of cars to borrow At the same time I'm really running out of money fast.

    But who knows, it might actually be back up and running in a week or so. Wouldn't that be nice!

    would it be worth it to you to take them to small claims court?

    Is that something I can do? I don't have a receipt or anything on the sale. How would this work?
