      Missing tooth every 180? That's crazy. MS doesn't even support that (now). I wonder if they do that to sync up faster (together with a cam wheel of course).

      Yeah I'm not too crazy about the press...

      Can you get into a little more detail on the rain gutters? Did you leave the black trim piece on? Was this piece in good shape? Pics please.

      That raised part is there so that for small throttle inputs, you get small amounts of air. Otherwise, you'd get a whole lot of air past the throttle as soon as it cracks open. The throttle would be...

      That has got to be the cleanest and nicest 010 I've ever seen (also the first one I've ever seen). But seriously, most 020's wish they looked like that.

      My dream for an "automatic" is to add...

      I think out of the block. Here's why. Water is pumped into the block, then goes through the head gasket up to the head, then through the radiator and back to the pump. So the block is at the highest...

      Awesome, I really like that solution. Why didn't I see this a year ago when I had my freeze plugs out? I'd TIG a -6 AN fitting to a factory plug if I were doing it.

      I also just wanted to make the...

    11. The "How Did I Get Here?" Chick's Scirocco build thread

      I've tried super glue, axial scribes on the shaft, and even drilling through and pinning the gears. These work temporarily for me. I find that the problem is that the odometer mechanism wears...

      The engine mounts look fantastic. Is that powder coat or paint?

    13. The "How Did I Get Here?" Chick's Scirocco build thread

      Why not just swap the speedo bits from one odometer to the other. There's only a spring and a magnet that determines how the speedo reacts. It's been a while since I've had mine apart but I seem to...

      What's the issue with the rear crank seal trigger setup? Do they tend to fail or are they difficult to get working right? Just curious.

      I'd love to see what you come up with for the clutch reservoir. I have almost the exact same setup (except on the DRIVERS SIDE) :beer::laugh:

      It's just two pieces of steel welded together. One has the two holes for bolting to the power steering bracket, the other has one big hole for the sensor. They are welded at 90 degrees.

      You're talking about a four pin connector? I don't think it would be. One reason is that the wire that energizes the starter solenoid on a manual car comes out of D24 on the back of the fuse panel,...

      OK so here's the rear mount taking shape. Same method, use a jig to transfer the location of the mount from the old transmission/mount to the new transmission.

      Yet another guy making 02J mounts

      I've found that there's lots of variation in the 02J (or 02A) mounts into A1 chassis out there so I decided to make my own. I needed to be sure that everything would be aligned. I didn't want to...
