      Grumpy Hermit what they tend to do is increase the max feul flow as wel and then they might make power beyond 4700rpm. The way those old pumps works is that it starts to decrease feuling when the rpms go near redline. So if redline is 5200 it starts dropping feul and maybe timing(dont know for sure anymore) at 4700, about 500rpm before redline is normal. So the 1.9 would actually drop off at about 4100

      SV Seeker - Cool. I'm anxious to see it cruising in the water. :-)

      Walker Vaillancourt - I hear you. They just don't produce any power up in that RPM range. My Duramax, for example, has max torque at 1600rpm-1700rpm. Max acceleration is before 2000rpm, so shifting would be the wise thing to do.

      That's about the range I found too. We measured it around 2400 at wot.

    its way easier to get the turbo off if you use a metric adjustable wrench. most turbos are metric sized

    Awesome use of cranial matter to determine the problems. Two thumbs up!

    I'm sure someone has already mentioned this, but the VW diesel was used for many years in boats. A company called Pathfinder marinized them back in the 70's and 80's. My friends S2 sailboat has the 50hp naturally aspirated model in it.

    Love to see the turbo rebuild always sounds like voodoo mechanics

    I was sitting here thinking "just throw in a diode", then you go and flash it on the screen lol.

    The term you were looking for with the turbo impeller was 'radial'. Moving across the radius.
