    1999 GTI Recharge pill

    Bought a very clean GTI off a coworker and redid the motor, all new seals, carb kit, and top end. When rebuilding the carb I did not touch the accelerator pump and have since learned this could be the cause of the sluggish low end performance on take off. I also learned that one of the accelerator fuel lines has a "recharge restrictor" installed in it that apparently slows down the accelerator diaphragm.

    Does anyone know which line the recharge restrictor is shoved into? Before or after the little accel pump?

    Its a little brass orifice in the lower tube that feeds the acc pump.

    The concept behind the "recharge" thing was to restrict the refill stroke of the accel pump, so as not to pull too much fuel from the carb chamber, possibly upsetting fuel flow through the regular carb mixing passages.

    The reason for the "restrictor" in the lower hose is to keep the motor from going rich if someone would "pump" the throttle lever.

    The restriction causes the accel pump to not fill up as fast. Really not needed if you dont pump the throttle.
