VW cabriolet MK1 1.8L oil pump priming
bought a 1990 vw cabriolet engine is seazed up can i prime the engine with
the oil pump while oil pump is still in car and not taking engine apart.? if so
how do i do that ...i see online they say to use a drill to turn the pump do i
need a special adapter?
Yes that is just what I did with my spare engine. I used a flexible piece of plastic tube in an electric drill, then made an aluminum adapter to match the slotted bottom of the distributor gear which is what drives the fuel pump. You need something to center it though - to fit the hole in the engine block. I used a cut up fuel pump inlet.
