      Do the pushrod bushing and seal at the same time. The bush holds the pushrod and the seal seals it... if either are worn, it'll leak so if you put a new seal over a worn bushing, it'll leak.

      I'll take one of each item on your list, please, good sir.
      I assume you accept damaged gear parts as payment.
      If you ship fast, I will include a portion of a crushed 5th housing as a generous tip...

      The input shaft size won't matter, you're just swapping in the R&P so the input shaft won't be affected.

      The output shaft is different though possibly, where the 4th gear splines are.

      The VW dealer is the only place to get shims, they may have to order them for you though.
      The problem is you won't know which shims, if any, are needed until you are actually assembling the trans...

      I don't know the MK1 very well but you would have to run 100mm inner CV joints, and then the original smaller outer CV joints if you wanted to go with 100mm flanges on that MK3 trans... if you use a...

      I can't speak on the hydraulic clutches from experience, but my guess is that they cannot be adjusted to change the resting point of the pedal. This is done via the clutch parts geometry and the wear...

      Yes, the DFQ is a MK3 2.0L trans code, it will have 100mm flanges on it and the MK1 will most likely have 90mm inner CV joints, so you would need 90mm axle flanges.
      There are 3 kinds of flanges,...

      Yes, but there may be an issue with the clutch. It could be wear due to age, it could be driver error (like not releasing the pedal fully), it could be a mechanical failure (broken spring or...

      I admit I have never tried preloading without some lube on the bearings, but I am surprised it made such a difference at the low speeds and loads present when turning the shafts by hand.
      I would...

      You are correct.



      Yes.



      The grinding you hear is not the brass sync rings.
      The wear to the brass occurs on nearly every shift. The higher the RPM when you shift and the faster the shift,...

      I would say one of the shorter R&P trans codes, like the MK2 diesel codes would likely be a good match.

      Someone swapped 90mm flanges on it then, the CHE had 100mm from VW.
      The CHE was only used in the MK3 2.0L cars... VW used the AMC, then the CHE, and finally the DFQ in the MK3 models. There is a DGD...

      They can work out big number problems like this one:

      Do you use the trans to hold the car when parked or do you use the parking brake?
      Does it only occur on slopes?

      They should be easier to spin together the same direction when the trans is out of gear, so something is amiss.
      When spun together the same direction, you're basically spinning the diff+spider...
