Hi Joe,

I’ve made a lot of progress the last few days.

Some fine tuning on the injection pump and I’ve got a runner on my hands! The injectors are new remanufactured units, but I’ve gotten similar advice on getting them all synchronized.

It runs well now, just smokes a bit and is slow to start when cold. I’ve fixed a bunch of little stuff already and this afternoon did some paint correction. This car really is nice!:

Ben:

That is awesome, great video! Yes it takes much effort to make a black car shining like this: It will be a show stopper on every cruise in! Great that you were able to fix the engine in such a short time!

Regards, Joe

P.S.: You may know I've got a 1975 Audi 100 LS in L041 black, too. I got to admit that sometimes I whish I had it painted in NATO olive or camouflage grey/brown/green. Saves so much time in cleaning and polishing!

Hi all, small update here

I feel like there is still an issue with the fuel system so I sent the injection pump and injectors off to Giles for a rebuild and refurbishment.

I also revamped the glow plug system for better performance there

Stay tuned!

Still waiting on the injection pump but started thinking about the body and getting it all sorted out before I take this car to a show in Pennsylvania this spring.

I was able to source a new fender from Audi Tradition and its on the way via a friend in Canada. I really wish they would just ship direct to the USA!

Excited to get this thing back up and running and then send off for the hood and new fender to be painted

Hi,
great to hear this news from you! We are looking forward to watching your progress! I wish I was able to get to the Penn car show. Do you know the exact date and location?
Regards, Joe

P.S.: Funny that you have to order a fender in Germany via CA. I just had to urge to order a hydraulic pressure line for a 2002 Jetta 1.8T AUQ from Rock Auto in the US as VW in Germany were out of stock.
