Unfortunately not the case... Last Cummins 6BT to have a VE pump was in 1993 (1989 to 1993 production run), and the last VW sold in the USA with a VE was the 1992 VW 1.6. The US did not get the 1993-1996 AAZ 1.9 diesel VW that we got in Canada, and the next diesel available was the TDI in 1997 or so, with the VP44 based pump.

I'm not surprised that local shops don't see many of them. There is one guy I am aware of that really knows them inside and out, Giles at Performance Diesel:

performancediesel.ca

He does mechanical TDI conversions on VW engines and all kinds of adaptations, and gets pumps shipped in from all over. Very reasonable, and especially with the dollar being low currently, a bargain for the US guys.

Reading the rest of the thread, I think Dave is on the right track, the timing would not have slipped by just sitting in the shop... Must be something else going on.

Could you have a plugged return line or a bad filter? Fuel supply restrictions will affect timing on a VE pump.

There's a black plastic collar but it is cracked and spinning around not doing anything that I can tell.

Interesting you mention filter. Possible. Pic below is what came with the engine. #buyerbeware
