      hahahha, go look up the book value of a Rabbit truck & then compare those numbers to not just what people are asking but what they are actually selling for. Book value is in the couple hundred dollar...

      I see in the sold list you mention the CIS is gone. Did the rubber boot that goes to the throttle body go with that or is that still available? If you still have it & it's in good shape I need it

      I have a Projektzwo front bumper. It has a crack at one of the top corners but can easily be repaired. The only thing is it would stick out slightly at the back of the wheel arch since it originally...

      the main issue with water cooled Vanagons are the head gaskets. Check those or ask him if he's ever changed them. Other than that they are decent rides. Slow as hell but you already know that. I had...

      probably why they quote it as a 5-6 hour job. I did talk to a buddy that's a VW certified mechanic & he said that the o ring leaking oil will NOT foul the plug since the leak from an o ring is ABOVE...

      My buddy that has the XB12 now had the XB9 before the 12's came out. He broke not 1 but 2 drive belts in a relatively short period of time & it has less power than the 12 obviously. One of the times...

      Yea, you definitely want to post Caddy stuff in the forum for it's year. In this case Mk 1 Rabbit/Jetta since your car is basically a Rabbit from the doors forward...

      I can get a sweet Duc 996 or even a 998 with a crap load of after market parts for $5-$7K. Hell, you can get an 848 for less than that & it will destroy that Buell in the performance department. I've...

      but you lose a TON of money unless you're prepared to sit on a part for a while until you get what you want for it. Ebay has a monopoly & they use it to their full advantage with their ridiculous...

      yea, the 6 O rings will be more than the head gasket itself. They quoted $54 for the gasket & at $16 each for the rings that's $96. I guaranty they pay maybe 3 cents each for those o rings.

      When I part a bike it's roughly 150 auctions I have to list. I take about 600-800 pictures of parts when all is said & done. It takes several hours to list 150 auctions even when all i have to do is...

      after talking to the dealer about the oil it sounds like I have a blown out o ring under the valve cover. Each spark plug hole has it's own o ring as well as the head gasket itself. They want to rape...

    18. How do these I*&*&* plug wire clips come unplugged?

      Went to take my plugs out & I can't get these damn clips to let go so I can pull them out. Tried pushing in on the back piece that looks like you'd squeeze it but no luck, tried lifting, prying with...

      I had a nice system in my Vanagon. It was a Carat model that had the rear facing jump seats. I had a 3 channel amp that I mounted against the back side of the driver seat base. It fit perfectly on...

      the Japanese bike I parted was an R6. I figured since there were about a million of them on the road it'd be easy to sell parts for it. I listed the frame for $20 starting bid no reserve for over a...
