My question is what length bolts are you all using that have changed to 944 front inner on the Syncro and did you keep the spacer?

My second concern- Am I losing 2mm of axle play with the 2mm wid ...

Doing a search I did not come up with an answer so thought this seemed the appropriate thread to ask the question.

I have just replaced the front original inner CV's on my Syncro with Lobro 944's. ...

Was it your ECU?

I thought I had updated this a while back. Been busy with big remodel project on my house.

Yes it was the ECU. I purchased a used one and it fired right up. Although it still ne ...

The six wires going to the crimp connection between the fuel pump and injectors looked good and clean. I went ahead and cut them back and reconnected them. No change.
I then went back through all th ...

Those tiny numbers on the wires in your photo mean something. I think that is the crimp splice you are looking for.

If you look at the wiring diagram for the year that harness is from you should be ...

I have searched and searched, cutting open many sections of the harness (the tan color) and have only found a crimp connector with three wires going to it. Even feeling the length of the harness for a ...

If you have power out of the relay but not at the injector you should check the connecter I was talking about. On mine it was wrapped up in the harness. The wiring diagram in the book shows it. It was ...

I performed the test on 24.41 and had no light as I cranked the engine either. With that I think I need to look for the possible causes.

When the key is on 1 pin of each injector connector should have CONSTANT 12v, measured between the pin and chassis bare metal. DO YOU?

Since you say you are getting spark the hall must be doing som ...

On a Bay it is common for people to hook the trigger wire to the wrong terminal on the coil and thus get no spray. I can't visualize the 1.9L coil wiring to know how likely it would be for the same t ...

If you think you have the right power to the injector you should back probe a ground to it and see if the injector clicks and flows. My injectors were not working on a van I bought. Turns out it was a ...

The CLK wheels that are popular for Vanagons, are forged which makes them lighter and stronger. These wheels are pretty thick and beefy and I have no concerns about their strength. I have taken them o ...

Thanks, now I'm torn between these and the clk320 wheels. Any benefit if one over the other?

You mean like this? I think were covered in this thread a few pages back. Those are on my van. Pretty straight forward fitting and a good offset.

Has anyone tried these Mercedes wheels? From what I have seen the dimensions should work.

If you have spark on cranking then the Hall is fine.

I don't see where you have tested for 12V at one pin on each injector connector with key on. With what you've said it's possible your ECU isn't ...
