DIY Fuel Injector Cleaning & Repair
This is the end result of a few hours of work and $60 because I didn't have
a 1/4" NPT tap in any of my kits. I could have done this for less-than
$40. The BG products were donated to the cause.
The REASON you want to use 20 PSI is precisely because of how peak-hold
type injectors work. The injector signal sends a 4v spike to open a
peak-hold type injector quickly, then maintains its open condition with
only 1 volt. Really, it's a current thing and there's a longer
explanation, but that's it in a nutshell. When you put the injector in its
operating pressure, it takes more than a AA battery to open it, but you
don't want to sustain that much current with a momentary switch and your
expensive injectors. This isn't in the video because this warning wouldn't
be as clear. Unless you can simulate the injector pulse precisely, don't
try it. 1.5v is enough to open it below its operating pressure. If you
open it and THEN apply pressure, you can flow as much pressure as you can
throw at it.
I don't discourage anyone from getting their injectors professionally
cleaned and balanced, but in my case, I didn't feel that was necessary.
In my first video, I thanked the seller for these injectors and happy to
know I got a great deal on high quality parts. My gratitude is even
greater because I had problems with them. It gave me an opportunity to
help others troubleshoot these kinds of problems when purchasing used
parts. A different idiot might have blamed the seller for peddling crap,
demanding their money back... but that would only be because they didn't
even know what they were looking at.
This particular idiot knows what high quality parts RC injectors are and
how to clean 'em. $250 + $60 still means I saved about $150 on a brand new
set. We all benefit because I bought these and I'm grateful! Let the good

Weber 32/36 fitted to 2l vw engine
I fitted a 2l vw engine in my vanagon and tried a single vw carb. good fuel
but low on power. Tried a 36DCD and very powerfull but economy sucks.
I reconditioned this 32/36 weber. Polished the carrb barrels and the
outside. Fitted it I must say best carb so far. Pulls like it should the
vanagon feels light and very drivable. Idles on 900 rpm constant.
1988 VW Fox Wagon, (2.0 8V ABA, CIS)
I sold my '85 Skylark and found this really neat little '88 Fox for a
commuter. Just about everything is covered in the video. I always end up
with bad video clip organization, so feel free to ask questions. I am new
to Volkswagens, and am still learning, so be easy folks!
BMX Pro John Ludwick's VW Fox wagon and mini-tank
John Ludwick's and his friends take to the streets in a Fox wagon and
mini-tank for a behind the scenes look at his feature in eurotuner
magazine. The November issue is in stores now. For more information check
VW Jetta to VW Fox engine swap compleat.
Well dispite the fact that the conversion book says it cannot be done. The
conversion of the VW Fox grom gas to diesel via the VW Jetta engine is now
done for the most part. The engine is in and running, car is drivable, and
on the road.
We did have to meke some concessions however to get in done. Relocate,
repostion radiator, change out some parts from other engine, and such. But
is is done.
Still need to finish up some minor things like glow plug relay and or
switct, and cold start cable. But nothing that keeps us from driving it
now. Had to use Fox gas tank, and modafy it slightly to do so. All is
listed in this video. Enjoy
