    1) I want to get new injector pump timing bolts, the 3 that lock down the gear. Mine are a bit rounded and were difficult to loosen. I believe they are M8 20mm hex flange. Can you just replace with ones at the hardware store? 2) And a source for sump pan bolts for a 200 TDI? Thanks

    Anyone know if the mounting bolts for the turbo cartridge have a specific torque value? This is for a 200tdi if it helps. I don’t have the specific Garrett model number handy. Figured I’d ask here before shooting off an email to the vendor. Those have a tendency to get lost in space more often...

    How bad would it be to run the shock towers with one of the 4 bolts missing? One of the kids broke it off and would rather not take the whole shock/spring retainer apart

    When putting these back in I read to use locktite Will enough locktite seal the bolts so they wont leak oil? or should I use something else? And I also read somewhere that 300 bolts are single use, I'm hoping this isn't true for the 200. Thanks

    What's the best hardware to use so you don't have rust running down the galvy frame? I figure stainless for some places, rear cross member etc. But what about places like tranny cross-member, and transmission support brackets, etc, I assume you wouldn't use stainless in those places. I found...

    Hi Guys, Just skimming though the torque specs for my 300tdi head bolts and saw the manual stating that the tappet slider retains bolts be this totally necessary? Mine are in perfect shape, threads perfect and no corrosion or deformity, wonder why they are one time use bolts. I...
