      it's an inspection hole so that you can set TDC based on the flywheel. i would just look for a part out in the classified and get one that way, unless you've got a junkyard near you with a VR6 mk3....

      I would say if you file down the sharp edges and get all those ding up smooth smooth again, you'll probably be ok.

      how does the cam look? the bearing cap can be replaced but the groove in the cam journal is definitely cause for some concern. I would take it to a cylinder head shop and ask them if it's possible to...

      I've got the 262's and would recommend them. There's lots of info on 262's in VR6's, just search the forum and all your questions should be answered.

      you didn't replace the tensioner... and want to know why the belt is losing tension? I would wager a guess the belt tensioner is shot.
