      What is a 1.1 busy?



      The DFQ trans is an 020 out of the MK3 2.0L cars, so it'll have the larger 24mm input shaft so make sure the clutch disc fits the input shaft by hand fitting it. It should...

      It'll help drain more.
      Drain it level until it stops, then tip it to get more.



      I can't say for sure on that one, it's been too long since I messed with the linkage much:P

      The only sure fire way to know what gear it has is to count the teeth.

      27 : 38 = 0.711
      37 : 52 = 0.712
      38 : 51 = 0.745
      44 : 58 = 0.759
      33 : 41 = 0.805
      34 : 40 = 0.850
      42 : 47 = 0.894

      No, it most likely wouldn't be the cause of the issue, but it could be. If the clutch disc isn't free to slide on the trans input shaft splines, then it can stay in contact with the spinning PP or FW...

      You checked the flywheel fits the pressure plate (the flywheel should have a single 7mm , the PP a single 7mm notch for the pin), so how far up is the arm on the trans being pulled by the cable when...

      They never completely drain, so expect some ATF to still be inside. Each time you drain and add gear oil it will dilute the ATF out more and more, but there will always be a little fluid in the trans...

      The only thing I'm not sure on is if the 210mm flywheel will fit inside the 4 speed bellhousing.
