      Well, that suggests that the linkage is working properly and finding all of the gears.

      I've never ordered the 40% kits, but if they don't come with new center cap seals, they should.
      I can understand them not being in an 80% kit as it comes with the steel center caps and o-rings.

      I don't know the MK1 cars like the MK2, but check to see if the ball cups have locks on them. Once locked, it shouldn't be able to come off the ball.
