Great discovery. Doesn't seem as basic a procedure when you read it. Seeing it definitely helps.

Looks like my JC Whitney order (CIS Tester and Gauge for Bosch) comes in next Tuesday, so will be trying it out. Your welcome to hook it up to yours too.

Most definitely. I've always been curious to see just where it's at.

One thing to keep in mind, don't drill the bottom hole like they did in the video. The 928's WUR also uses vacuum and unless you have some kind of plug for the hole you'll end up with one big vacuum leak.

Well Mike, as Joel says in RB, "sometimes you gotta say WTF." :lol:

After looking at the WUR a little closer, you can drill out the bottom plug to make it adjustable with an allen wrench. Now you want to make sure you take the WUR apart because otherwise you'll probably end up drilling through the rubber diaphragm and wasting the WUR. After making any adjustments, you can plug the hole with a dab of silicone.

Making the WUR externally adjustable, I think for the most part, makes adjusting it super easy and fast, but once you get it dialed in you probably will never mess with it again.
