      more pics please. pans, rockers, up under that front hood and rear clip.

      and upon first glance that doesn't appear to be a 62.

      if they are then i'll gladly admit i'm wrong :beer: it's been ages since i ran a mk3 trans with any aba swap and i remember having to mod something but forget exactly what :laugh: i've grown to...

      yes.

      it is bolt and go if you were to use your rocco trans. and for the record threading a couple of holes and installing some studs is still bolt and go for many people.

      yes, you can try to...

      personally i wouldn't mess with trying to remove the studs from the rocco trans. you can simply install a new set of studs on the mk3 after you properly tap the holes. if you're not comfortable...

      i'm sorry i don't know how to make this any more clear....you take the mk3/ce2 plug for the fuel pump (pictured on page 1) in the ce2 box and connect the power wire off that plug to the power wire...

      Considering he's not paying anyone I don't think that's an issue :laugh: :beer:

      When you piggyback the box the mk3 fuse box should be handling the fuel pump. The info on wiring this is all up is on the first page. :beer:

      have you clearanced your spindles for the larger 100mm axles or are you running (again 85 and later from cabriolet/rocco) later spindles? if so then yes you can use the mk3 transmission with axles...

      yeah. jump the fuel pump into the mk3 box and you'll be good to go :beer:
    12. yeah i've never used mk3 axles before. you...

      yeah i've never used mk3 axles before.

      you want 100mm axles from an 85 and later rocco/cabriolet. 16v roccos are pretty much the exact same thing :beer:
    13. if gap says that the axles are the same, they...

      if gap says that the axles are the same, they probably are. i've personally never looked at the later automatic cabriolet axles.

      back mount is the same be it 5 speed or 4 speed. you are correct...

      aba oil filter housings are different than the jh block. cannot be interchanged.



      in the first post in this thread stop reading when you hit the part about wiring :laugh: :beer:

      no chief i'm not damaged in any way. all my engine tin is accounted for, proper sedan exhaust on, and decklid installed :thumbup:

      coming from someone who's majority of posts are in the car lounge i'll consider that a compliment. :beer:

      honestly i do not consider myself an aba swap master. this thread was born out of me running my mouth in another thread years ago about how easy my piggyback trick made an aba swap. since then...

      i've not played with enough of these style gauges to know for certain, but they would probably be part of the mk1 engine harness.

      in either case for you to run them on the aba you'd have to make...
