      The auto alh had a larger 11mm pump and the manual came with a 10mm pump factory.

      I haven't done this.

      If you want a good pump CRSMP5 on vwdiesel.net/forums can get an 11mm land rover pump once...

      It looks normal to me. The coolant has to say in the block long enough to collect the heat so it can transfer it in the rad. That is probably why this is like that.

      I used autometer. That being said, I would try to find VDO as they are the stock gauges in these cars and will not require adapters or drilling and tapping to make them work. All the autometer I have...

      I am sorry, I meant that the AHU and the aaz are different from the 1.6L vac pumps. I have never had an AHU in hand to confirm, but from what I know about it the AAZ and ahu are the same pumps. As...

      Yeah, I thought you asked this on the GTD?

      The AAZ and AHU have different Vac Pumps. The block is slightly different, IIRC the IM shafts are as well. If you are asking is it ok to use then I...

      an AAZ crank should work a ton easier than that ALH. I don't know what would be needed for CPS or if it is made in the crank at all. If it is a bolt on deal then the AAZ crank will be perfect. Canada...

      If you do cut the .001" off there are thermal coatings that can be reapplied. I think it is not a huge deal to put a 2 notch on or to have the 1 piston machined and coated. You may not even need to...
