    2. Re: Saving 'Fintail Charlotte' [MB W110 progression thread]

      I have no idea! And I looked for some servicing documentation or any info on the 34 PICB and found nothing. I did find out today it came on 63 190c's though.



      I had my friend in parts look it...

      Monday update!

      Ran out to work on Charlotte tonight after work. Left the Marvel Mystery Oil sitting in the cylinders, decided the best way to get it out of the cylinders was to turn it over with...

      I'm dreaming of air!

      Threw together a kit on bagriders for a rough estimate of what it would cost to bag (minus brackets and shocks, but after talking to the owner of Hardtail Sally, I found out...

      I think last I checked the fuel screw thingy (still learning carb terms forgive me) is all the way in meaning it should be running as lean as possible? It could be jetted way wrong or have an...

      Very! Its beginning to look like the carb is screwy. Which then means adapting the 32/36 is jumping up my priority list!

      Also worth mentioning- all 4 spark plugs (barely a month old) were completely solid black. All -4- that is. Even the one that's "missing". Riddle me that!

      I talked to the dude who owns this beauty...

      Weekend update:

      Compression test done. Read 150psi on cylinders 1 and 4, 180psi on cylinders 2 and 3. Its good we have compression around the board but the 30psi difference has me scratching my...
    10. Re: WTS/WTT: polished Audi TT Fat Fives (5x100, 17x7.5) w/ 2 sets of 225/45-17

      Yeah I hear ya. Had to get these from a guy in Virginia. If I had other wheels on the agenda in the near future I'd do this for winter beaters, but I got a project car now and that's taking all of my...

      Didn't get a whole lot done this weekend on the account of having to do homework and other errands. I did get the tachometer hooked up, and I think I picked a bad ground because it was erratic at...

      I agree but I'm pretty sure that's a 3.5 cabby, that's definitely a mk4 Golf front end!

      Excellent information! So in addition to the diesel idle switch being useless, the choke switch will also be useless on the dash :laugh:

      I was told its 10 year/100,000 miles for the 2.0 mk4 platform your dealer can check and see if its been done already if you're not the original owner!
