      It'd probably take some significant lip-rolling action, mainly due to the width. Probably need spacers to keep the inner rim from hitting the A-arms.

      There was actually a tow hitch available for the Fox as a dealer add-on. I recall seeing a few on eBay over the years but haven't looked lately.

      Honestly tho, just go to Harbor Freight and buy...

      Check the ground strap from the back of the head to the grounding lug where the negative battery cable attaches to the body.

      Ah, and in there is a wire that ends up at the tach, I remember that now. Anyway, this was the problem. Exciter wire broken at the alternator. In true Fox fashion I stripped the end of the wire...

      Yep, that's it. The other end goes to the distributor IIRC?

      Remind me about the tach wire issue?

      Worked on the wagon some this weekend - new front brake pads and adjusted rear bearings (which are gonna need replacing again, dadgumit)

      Honestly, you're better off finding a 5 speed linkage and transmission and making the swap.

      Did the kit replace *all* the rubber parts in the shifter? Sounds like it is still really sloppy. If it is actually getting all the way in gear and popping out, that'd almost have to be the tranny.

      Not sure why a carbureted car would have a coolant temp sensor or an O2 sensor. I'm thinking you have more vacuum leaks.

      Yeah, that hose has been unavailable for over a decade, to my knowledge. I keep meaning to take a spare fuel pump assembly to one of these hose manufacturers and get a kit together, but time/money...

      Have you gone thru the Bentley procedure to test the injectors? With measuring their output and everything? That's where I'd go next.

      Not so much today, but last weekend replaced the water pump, which had been dying a slow, painful death. I might post pics of the carnage tomorrow. Also welded the exhaust back together.

      Your usual FLAPS (O'Reilly''s, Checkers, etc.) should still carry half-shafts with both CV joints installed on it. They're generally cheap but don't last very well. If they have a 'lifetime...

      I have the 'lowering springs' on my sedan. They're nice, and I like them, but they don't provide much of a drop. If you're after 'slammed' you can forget it. They just lower it down enough so it...

      Just a quick peek to check on my Scirocco-driving brothahs and sistahs. Been too busy the past year or so to be chatty. :(
