      Filled the transmission and adjusted the front camber (so the tires aren't sitting against the coilovers), and drove it down the street and back. Took tomorrow off to work on it, in hopes that I can...

      Got the radiator and coolant bottle in. Either the lower radiator hose is too big on the radiator end or the outlet on the radiator is too small; but it's clamped in place right now. Drove it about...

      They actually are still available, but they are such junk. I had to take a file to them to even make them fit....

      Agreed. I was looking through pictures and initially was thinking how nice of a truck it was. Then I got to the interior and suddenly turned to "why the hell did they do that??" (like cutting the...

      Probably a stupid question, but your alignment is good, right? If the alignment is off, it could still track straight (but wear out tires); but have funny characteristics when the amount of grip on...

      Seriously. Surprisingly, Wal-Mart replaced the battery, no questions. I wasn't even the person that bought it originally, either.

      In any case, small update. Fiddled around with it and finally...

      Is the tach the only thing that doesn't work? Check T14/5 to make sure it's getting a good ground and T14/7 to make sure it's getting power. I would think that those two would provide power and...

      12 pin connector will not work. 14 pin connector is still available new, though. Part #321 971 998. 1stvwparts.com lists it for $7. :thumbup:

      I made this while I was putting a scirocco cluster in my truck. Basically, take all the wires from the 12 pin connector and put them into the middle 12 spots of the 14 pin connector. Then just make...

      Update for the weekend... Time for (another) new battery. Came home on Saturday afternoon to find a something leaking from the truck... Turns out to be battery acid. :banghead:

      It's getting there. I'm going to have to take a break from it and do some work on the (green) Corrado that I've been putting off, though. Coilovers and a B4 sunroof cartridge being the big ones....

      Very busy time of year for me... Small update, though. Did some voltage testing and found that while I have 12v coming out of the fuse box going to the coil, it's down to 5.5v once the wire reaches...

      I actually replaced the entire hose on mine. The lines under the car are (just about) the same as any mk3, so I just pulled some out of a late mk3 (I figured the newer the better) in a junkyard and...

      Another thought is check how many amps your alternator is putting out. And verify your alternator ground is good. :thumbup:

      Another small update. Changed the oil and oil filter (and found that my oil pan leaks), plugged all the vacuum ports on the intake, then put a battery in it to see what happens. No smoke, so that's...
