Found the fucking starter.

This motor is slightly different, had to trim 1 of the studs on the turbo to get it in. I think this turbo sits about an inch lower.


Started running power cables, this was fun.

Oddly didn't have any 1/2" heat shrink. The stuff I had just turned out the be wire sleeve. FYI, it just melts and makes a mess when you put the heat gun to it. Motherfucker.

So, took the vacuum pump off the head to see if the inlet could be pointed to the D side instead of the P side. Short answer is no.

I always wondered how these work. It's a simple rotory vane pump that is lubed from the back cam journal. Fun thing is, it exhausts into the valve cover area. So any vacuum leak pumps unfiltered air straight into the cam area. Fucking brilliant! Going to have to figure out a filter for it. Fucking Krauts.

220 grit, throw a little tape on the edges and figure 8 away. A little wd40 or other light oil will keep the paper from loading up.

Thanks for reminding I forgot to take it with me this morning.
