I thought you meant james H from here.

Ok cool.

looking at that rail it looks like there may be enuff material outside of the fuel channel to drill some mounting holes??

CrazyDave also used the same stock for his I believe.

I would imagine there would be enough of it to drill and tap a few small holes for brackets.

Looks like the way forward. I guess you'd need a pillar drill ideally to get the holes for the injectors right. That rail from Demon Tweeks was only £35 as well.

Actually I am not sure the 1.8t one is a looser now.
I might take it to someone on Monday to see if they can do anything to help secure it down.
This isn't the actual one i'd use but you get the picture...
Not quite pushed on properly,those things are as tight as a ducks arse. Smile

You can see the mounting holes and how they don't quite line up with the holes in the manni. Smile

Crank pulley came from Deutschland 2day.
New one on the right is offset for the wider 16v crank pulley.
One more piece of the puzzle.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

You just want the pulley?

You can get a nice alloy one from gruvenparts in the states. I've got one, which is nice.

The passat fuel rail is my best bet i think.
The best fit in terms of fitting inside the ports of the manifold and properly seating between the rail and the tops of the injectors.
Try as I might because the other 1.8t rail looked smarter it just didn't fit right and made me nervous.
Speaking of nervous,I took the billet rail to a couple of machine shops and they wanted no parts of it.Well one specialist did.He was a car fanatic too but he was busy until at least Feb fulfilling government contracts for the MOD.Shame as the quality of the work would have no doubt been good.
I think the passat 1.8t rail shows the most promise so i'm going to run with that.

I have made the angles of the intake and return fuel lines less acute so I'll hopefully get bonnet clearance.

Was that from Strictly Dubs? They're distributors for Gruvenparts in the UK, but seem to charge the same in pounds ans GP do in dollars...

I can see why they would be nervous. 3 bar of fuel spraying out the side of a fuel rail wouldn't be very good, I shouldn't think Sad

Well, at least you can fall back on to the 'specialist' if you have to.

yeah,I hate being reliant on people tho so I thought fluck it,i've wanted to learn to weld for a while so I bought a mig and attached some steel brackets to the golf 1.8t fuel rail.
Needs tidying up but it does the job of securing down the fuel rail.

I have bought some steel off cuts from a local merchant so i'll be getting more practice laying welds..
Fun experience so far.
