      How much are you looking to get for it?
      I could probably swap the bell housing side to use on my Syncro.

    3. Engine sitting for a few months. A way to pre-lube the charger before starting?

      Hey all.

      So I'm tossing my Syncro together for a move out west.

      Is there anything I can do to pre-lube the charger before I try and start it? It's been sitting for 8 months.

      They are Gen 1 tails. Decent shape but the right one has a piece missing out of it above the seal. Doesn't leak though. I'll get pics later this week.

      So I bought a 98 Jetta as a dependable daily while I rebuild my Syncro B3.

      I just did valve cover and pan gaskets as they leaked and noticed the timing belt was cracked.
      I changed that out and...

      I'm still lurking, still have my ridiculous Fox project. I think it qualifies for longest project.
      Gotta put the Syncro back together before the Fox gets work done.

      Corrado springs are rumored to be taller than Fox springs as the Corrado is heavier. It will likely make for a rough ride though.

      I could have sworn I had read something about using a set of BMW lights as replacements for the DE's but maybe it was a discussion, not a definate answer.

      So what do we DE owners do should the...

      Angel Eye Hella DE's.

      So I have a set of Hella DE's and I'd like to have angel eyes. I've heard that BMW E30 lights are the same lenses. Any truth to this?

      So I'm done with daily driving my fox. It has issues so I bought a MK3 Jetta instead.

      I'm likely keeping the nose panels and maybe the front doors but everything else is available. It has rear...

      If you run a crank case vent some where else, you can delete that. It requires a 40mm frost plug for the round part and the ABA block off from TT for the other part. I did the same thing on my ABA...

      I have never heard of that happening before. At least you know what it is. Replace the rear main seal while you have the transmission out.

      I forgot that you're in the US and didn't think about the wonky seat belt setup that you were cursed with.

      Glad you figured it out though.
