    I have a good running diesel engine (1982) but the injection pump is leaking now where the cold start valve cable connection mounts. Can this seal be replaced without taking the pump apart? I have a complete rebuild kit for an injection pump, but I'd just like to replace the cold start valve...

    I'm trying to identify and replace what I believe is the voltage regulator on my 1977 Fuel Injection Beetle. Unfortunately, nothing I see on the internet matches up with my part. Can someone confirm what this is and if it's unusual or if there's a newer version that will work? Thanks.

When it happens the Rpms go up and down and then the car wants to die if I don't push on the gas. But sometimes it just dies. I...
