      Unhook the EEC line in the engine bay, crack the gas cap, and try blowing some compressed air through the line to make sure it is all clear.

      Don't expect a huge passage of air though the open...

      I'd be inclined to switch over to the mk2 style with the post type connectors. I think the wires were a higher grade, mag core, not sure, but worth looking into. You would have to change distributor...

      Interesting. I appreciate that you posted this.

      Perhaps there is some variation in the part among years and models? It would seem that would have to be the case if we are both to be correct.

      On my 84 Rabbit non AC, there are actually 5 screws that need to come out.

      4 in the raintray, as already mentioned, and 1 inside the car, behind the controls, which holds the front of the lower...

      almost all the shift elements are different, except for the big long rod under the car. Even the shift box around the shifter is different.

      You should be able to pull up some info with an archive...

      Were not stock on all mk1's.

      All the ones I have seen installed have been on diesels. I do grab them if I see them in a junkyard, but they are a bear to get off without breaking the aged plastic...

      Some flywheels don't have timing marks, so I remember reading, only the TDC circle. However, using the pic above, you could eyeball it close enough. Put a little paint or white-out on your TDC circle...

      If it is a distributor with vac advance, only, I'd suggest 6 degrees BTDC +- 2 degrees at spec idle.

      Probably not.

      Might be something else causing the noise, such as alternator bearings or the belt rubbing on something below you can't see, like the outer cover or inner metal shield.

      You can...

      As long as the bolts didn't stretch, then no problem. You can feel them stretch at the very last of the tightening, so, yeah, you probably would have noticed it if so.

      sure you can as long as they are the second generation 90mm flanges. Same seal and everything.



      That is another option.

      You would have to swap the flange too.

      Just use the larger shaft and joints, then.

      Use a 90mm inner or the larger shaft for the larger joints.

      You should be able to get Pilkington glass new. I'd rather buy new glass than use old because it isn't sandblasted.

      They let the pipe flex at the joint.

      Braided sections also serve the same purpose.

      The reason is the exhaust is attached to the engine, and the engine rocks around on its rubber mounts. The...

      I usually rough-up the back side of the broken pieces, use crazy glue on the crack, let dry, then gingerly mop some construction adhesive on the backside to reinforce it. Barely noticeable.

      "Pulley offset" is the measurement you are concerned with.

      The 90 amp mk2 ac alternators will fit, as mentioned. They are a little bit larger because they can do 90 amps instead of 55-65, and the...
