      My timing was way off after I replaced the head gasket. Mine wasn't starting either after the work.

      I'd try car-part.com. You can search locally to find your parts. It's how I found my five speed transmission.
      Good luck

      Or better yet, strip the fox, refresh the suspension with performance part and autocross it. They're a blast.

      Keep the rabbit too. So many aftermarket parts for it make it an easy platform to...

      I've taken one apart before, and its construction (basically an electromagnet affecting flow) doesn't make sense why it would leak. Unless one of the seals(between two brass plates, both about .25...

      I'll second bt's answer. I put synchromesh in my 9Q before installing it. You'll use two quarts. It's been good so far.

      What transmission did you get?

      I can't say for sure about the clutch and flywheel, but I think the rabbit intake manifold will need to have some aluminum removed to make best use out of the fox2 throttle body. But, given that you...

      A few days back I replaced all of the rear brake parts. For the longest time the brake pedal, despite multiple bleeding endeavors, the pedal was the same; almost to the floor. I'm sure most of you...

      I remember we had a BIG snow a few years back (for SC anyhow) with 2 feet of snow. The fox was the best navigating through it. I'll try to dig out some pictures.

      I 'm using proportioning valves from an 8V Scirocco. I know the valves for the 16v are expensive! I'll get a picture if you'd like.

      Good luck:cool:

      I replaced the bias valve on my wagon with in-line valves from an 8v scirocco. They seem to work well and don't leak.
      I tried to use the bias block off of a rabbit truck, but there was little room...

      The cam is the last thing I'm soon to the engine short of dropping in an ABA. It's got a big valve head (german), larger throttle body, dasher downpipe, WOT switch, hand-built exhaust system by a...

      I installed a 268 cam. So far as I can tell there is more power overall with most gains in midrange torque. The car is quicker too.
      I joked with a colleague that the 1.8 might have 100 hp. Not...

      I'm halfway through changing the camshaft (bought a 268). I'm waiting on a new camshaft seal and valve cover gasket.
      GTI "G" camshaft might be for sale soon.
