      The sprocket is centered, there is no way for it to be not centered. That central part that is not centered is not important and not centered on my car either.

      Under all conditions? Only under power? High speed, low speed? High pitched squeal or more like a squank? Quiet, loud? Constant during cornering, or just when turning wheel?

      Neither of those cars has a muffler. Only differences are that the red car has the side pipe and the white car has a little larger diameter rear exit pipe.

      These old VW engines often have some moisture in them if they're not getting used much, or it's winter or whatever. Usually if coolant is getting in, the foam will be more greenish.
