      That's the universal joint shaft. When I swapped for a manual rack, those two bolts on the upper half were holding the lower half in and lower half had holes for the bolts to go into. Looking at used...

      I'd guess bad ignition switch or crank sensor. Do you hear the pump prime at all with ignition on? Maybe try jumping the fuel pump relay and starter. You can check the resistance on the crank sensor...

      Can anyone recommend a shop that can clean and check a block? Need it deglazed/honed for new rings too. Picked one out of the yard yesterday and want it prepped for a rebuild.

      Yeah, I'm pretty sure I could use any 12V VR6 block, even Mk4, and just swap what I have. I know a yard with a couple Mk4 VR6 engines, but not sure on condition of the one and the other has high...

      The horn wires are part of it. You have to disconnect them where they connect to the steering wheel to fully remove. Just the one in the bottom center.

      That's the clockspring. Just swap the whole thing over. You might want to try and remove the damaged one first to figure out how to remove it without breaking it.

      Use a spark tester or pull the wires one by one from the plugs and ground to metal and see if spark comes out when cranking.
