    1. Backing plate hole plug replacement

      Anyone have their plug in the timing belt backing cover disintegrate, the one next to the alternator bottom pivot?

      Looks like it is 33.6 or close, diameter. I don't see the part listed separately...

      I see, you are correct, but what misled me was that the click pic at the bottom of the page blows up to be their bung-hole model.

      True, some nice stuff. I run their SS exhaust and mk2/3 manifold...

      Thanks for the link.

      Those have a return bung welded in, for Turbo, I suppose. You can make out the brand on the picture, and can purchase them plain elsewhere.

      Under some grime, looks like one of my inner boots has "U.S.A." on the metal flange part so I'll have to check it closer and also check the other. You can take a guess and I'll report back later.

      My next predicament is whether to re-use the rubber gasket. I won't say it was a perfect seal, but it was 10 times better than the old cork.

      Also, I noticed that on several websites of parts, the...

      They really gobbed it on in the back, making great places for moisture to get behind and rust the metal.

      On that point, I don't think so. The ICM does its own thing separately of the Jetronic. In this situation, I think the only way ignition timing is adjusted is by a digital idle stabilizer (which I...

      Sounds like a loose connection. Perhaps the previous owner noticed the same thing, and thought the problem was a bad connection in the idle stabilizer plugs, hence the butcher and splice of the three...

      Lobro cv boot kits after 7.5 years.

      I'll bump up this thread instead of starting a new one. It is the only one I could find relevant in a forum "search".

      I was shocked to see both my inner cV boots gone to pieces the other day. I...

      I can't remember where mine came from but they have a built in washer which bites into the surface as tightened down. They are a black oxide finish.

      Part number is N90008401.

      2.75$ each (!)...

      How do you like the camber/caster plates? How do the bearings hold up? Any harshness?

      Since that is near the ignition module, it could be the wires to the digital idle stabilizer connector. The cars had plugs for the stabilizers, but many did not have the units, so Vw just plugged the...

      Any difference in quality between these? I see Dorman, Spectra, and a couple other brands.

      Well, my reason for considering a replacement cable was that the rubber seal between the original cable and the well which goes into the transmission was leaking out trans fluid. The case is not...

      weber DFEV idle settings

      Perhaps someone will find this useful.

      I had been running a Weber DFEV 32/36 on my 1.7L Rabbit engine.

      Base timing goal was 6 degrees BTDC and the idle speed target was 850 rpm.

      Previously,...

      I think the first thing I am going to try is a heat shield under the carb gasket. Basically , the heat shield would be mounted where the carburetor mounts and would fit down on the manifold and be...

      Another thing to be aware of is that the pads are different too. For the wire anti rattle clips, the pad backing plate should have a small notch cut for their...

      Quite beautiful and good restoration.

      Wonder if anyone ever tried chrome-plating the stock 13" "steelies"?
