Aw, come on, ToolMan,you know darned well there ain't no turning back once you start twisting those screws...I turned up my pump by using these....hope its ok to post them. just take your time, and mark where you originaly started so you can go back if needed....good luck man :beer:
And have the JB Weld standing by ha haWell..aaa..well..ya.... your right :happyfinger: I take back what I said, turn everything all the way in, drill out your injectors with a 1/16 in drill bit, and locktight everything down cause its gonna get hairy...LOL bounce :rasta: bounce
*** Pleas note *** Don't drill out your injectors,let a diesel shop do this and they need to be flow tested after your done.The new injectors don't cost that much !Well..aaa..well..ya.... your right :happyfinger: I take back what I said, turn everything all the way in, drill out your injectors with a 1/16 in drill bit, and locktight everything down cause its gonna get hairy...LOL bounce :rasta: bounce
The high idle screw will limit throttle travel. I screw mine way out. It can't make it rev higher than the governor spring will let it.CrewCab59, what you said about Diesel modifications / tinkering can be applied to ALL things.
My "day job" involves batting cleanup on computers after people "tinker" with them. A lot less potential for bloodshed with computers, though..
Now, while we're on the subject of "turning up the pump".. I found out mine does NOT have a 3200 RPM spring put in it. But it does turn 3200 RPM, give or take..
I got to talk to the mechanic yesterday that had performed the "turn up" on the one I have, and he indicated that you could increase max RPM via some adjustment without replacing springs, etc. And in looking at the information in the Yahoo group files for the VE pump, that does appear to be the case. P 26 of the PDF shows "Adjusting screw for high idle (maximum) speed."
So, the questions are:
1. Why hasn't anyone put up a guide for doing this?
2. (And this may answer #1) What, if any, are the "gotchas" on doing it via this method?
