I just changed a fuel pump last week. The old compressed top gasket measured out at 0.23 mm or 0.009 inches.

Interesting thread. There is at least one other size. The aftermarket spacer that I removed recently was 13.81 mm. This spacer was about 30 years old and had the VW/Audi logo, the same as the new CIP1 ...

Yes. Febi is a nice kit. My Ď60 was the old style front end that uses 40 shims total. The Febi and most kits have 32 shims and the 4 caps and 4 O-rings. So you need to use 8 of your original shims. I ...

Update: The wear was definitely in the bushing. The new bushings pressed in perfectly. I used the Febi link pin kit. The new shims all measured out @ 0.51 mm while the used ones ranged from 0.42-.049 ...

New pump is installed and working great. Kudos to Bill for the high quality of his rebuild work. Managed to get very close to the 13 mm spec with the new fuel pump rod and spacer.

Thanks Bill.
The old aftermarket fuel pump pushrod was not exactly helping things. It was worn down to 107.4 mm. Another example of why original is best.

Thanks Glenn. Exactly what I wanted to know.

Another difference between the two spacers.
This is how the Dansk ( on the right) came out of the box. It had been sanded to reduce height. Who knows ...

Clean up the fittings and lines as best you can and then try to pinpoint the source of the leak. Seems to be a drop of brake fluid on that right hand fitting. Possibly cracked. Worst case scenario, re ...

Try a new bushing in the suspect torsion arm link. (Or one of your old tight ones) If it's tight, then the wear was limited to the old bushing. The suspect bushing may also have worn shorter, if it ...

The other thing I was wondering about was what actually wore?

1) Was it the actual thick bushing or 2) the bore in the carrier or 3) a combination of both.
Not sure what material the bushing is m ...

The length of the link pin bushing bore in the torsion arm link must be checked too. If the link pin adjustment was neglected, play develops where the adjustment washers seat in the torsion arm link. ...
