      Well shucks, it don't run, drive, OR have a wiring harness, but all be damned if it isn't going to be rocking that westy style front end! You ought to put a sweet sound system in it too.

      I installed one on my car. I noticed a difference when just backing it out of the driveway after the install. Much tighter, especially over bumps.

      The Cabriolet you got the fuel distributor off of may have been running. But that car is not your car.

      I suspect the Oxygen Sensor Thermo Switch.

      How to test this switch and all the other...

      I'm always out driving around here in AZ, and very rarely see another Mk1 on the road.

      I am one of those people that try and keep mine all original and in nice shape. It used to aggravate me to...

      Its definitely possible you have other issues and I'm sure in due time they will get sorted out. I will say from personal experience that you will probably find that the more you drive it the better...

      The item in the yellow circle IS the cruise control unit. No debate about it. It has a vacuum line that runs from the unit in the yellow circle, to a vacuum servo that connects up to the throttle...

      Id not recommend poly mounts, many who have installed them have removed them after because they just are too harsh and impractical for a car that is driven as a car.

      Also, this is just my opinion,...

      I just removed the hose end from the manifold, and the pipe end from the throttle body boot, and after the two allen head bolts were out, it came right off. You may be able to get at it from under...

      The top looks fine. In the photo it was probably not locked down. And as for it not folding, its just because they probably did not connect the two straps which help fold the top in. Mentioned and...
