      Since he hasn't spoken up, I'll confirm, that is indeed Stratos Blue. I am a bit of an expert on that particular color...

      Bought this Fox for $500 in 2008. It had about 250k miles on it. I've put another 150K+ on it since then. Not a bad investment......

      Feeler posts for nice Mk1 S models quickly become more than feelers. ;) Wish I was in position to snatch this one up.

      Wow, I quit hanging out on the 'tex and next thing I know Ric is selling off his stash. Sad day indeed.

      If I had the cash I'd take it and find good homes for 'em all.

      Rough running when cold is likely either the coolant temp sensor or a vacuum leak. Neither is a big deal. :) GLWS

      If you can't adjust it enough at the bracket by the oil filter, the bellcrank arm at the transmission may have slipped on the shaft, or there could be larger problems with that arm and the throwout...

      Sounds like your problem is getting resolved, Marcelo. And yes, we did get that model here in the US, where it was known as the Dasher coupe. They're rare as hen's teeth, tho.

      Welcome to the Fox forum. There's not a ton of us so traffic is light - immediate replies don't always happen. :) Sounds like you're very savvy (living in Alaska I would imagine you'd have to be!)...

      Sorry, this was all on the main pump. Thanks for the ideas, good to know for next time. I ended up jacking up the wagon, disconnecting the main pump, pulling the lead out a bit, and connecting my...

      Wow, Poland? I bet that is an interesting story.

      For getting body parts, things will be tough. As SourKandi mentioned, you'll either have to get used parts from a source here in the US, or maybe...

      Meh, taildraggers. Cayman is a great car but wrenching it yourself would probably require going to get a doctorate in mechanical engineering. $30K could buy or build a damned fine 914, tho, and you...

      Good deal, where was the leak? Also, the intake boot itself can leak after 20+ years of use, even if it looks OK there can be cracks at the base of the ribs.
    17. Anyone try testing an unknown fuel pump out of car?

      Fuel pump died on the wagon. I have a couple lying around but don't want to install a bad one. Has anyone ever tried hooking up 12V directly to the pump to see if it works?

      The pump is easy, lots of internet order sites carry it. The sender and the rest of that stuff would probably have to come from a donor.

      It'd be a bit humorous having someone in Brasil waiting...

      Getting a windshield out is fairly easy. Getting it out *in one piece* is not so easy. I strongly suggest you let a professional install it anyway, so I would just get a few quotes from reputable...
