Great write-up and very informative. I am just wondering if anyone has a preference for suppliers of the timing belt kits and other than getting the metal impeller waterpump, is there anything else to look out for?
Also are there any preferred suppliers for Canadian customers?

locking in crank and cam shaft

Im in the process of doing the timing belt change myself. I got all the specialty tools and the metalnerd crank shaft tool (the second gold one pictured in the how to).

My problem (so far) is that when I get the cam pin in place I cant get the crank pin to line up. if I put the pin into the block the holes are off by one hole. By that I mean the smaller holes that the bolts wont go through line up with the bolt holes on the crank shaft. I even turned the cam shaft all the way around while pushing the lock pin the entire 360 degrees of rotation o see if there was a second hole it would line up with.

On the crank shaft the "crown" cut out points at the throttle body. Comparing it to the pics in the how to it seems like its not pointing in the same position.

its an 06 BRM Jetta Engine.

Can you take a pic just so there's no confusion? if not sure how to post pic : http://www.myturbodiesel.com/forum/f23/how-post-pictures-videos-files-pic-vid-rules-1044/

If it's a tiny hair off, it's OK because it means the belt has drifted slightly. just remove belt and reset cam-crank to TDC positions. But the crank tool should look like in the pics. Regardless of your crank or tool, both t10050 and t10100 still have the crank sprocket at same positions, just the tools have hte arrows in diff spots and one sprocket is oval, one is circular.

Here's a pic of the metalnerd too used on a t10050 type sprocket (yours should be a t10100 type)

BRM... Fuel Pum Timing

Chitty,

I read most of your installation blog. Very detailed. My brother-in-law are seriously debating the changeover of the timing belt and water pump on a BRM. The big question is do we need a computer to reprogram the injection?

We read this last night and now are in fear that we wont be able to get it all done...

Thanks.

Reprogram what injection? Read all of the instructions, not "most" and you'll get it :)

Is there a way to determine which Crank sprocket my car has, without having the car all apart? we have a very early 2005.5, one of the first to hit our local dealership.

Thanks, I'm away for a few day at the race track. When I get back I will check out and post the code.
it's a BRM.

I've never heard of one having the older style but the manual says early build might. Personally I think it's a manual error but I could be wrong...but there are a few significant mistakes in that expensive manual!

if lock tools both went in fine after turning engine over a few times back to TDC it should be very close, definitely OK to drive. Worth checking with VCDS afterwards though.
