how are you going to build up oil pressure before ignition??
i dont want to start the dry engine after filling in oil without propper
new oil in the complete system

fixed it for ya
i did that last night. what i did was put 4 quarts in. then i left the valve cover off, and poured the 5th quart and the additive oil over the cams and chain tensioner. i did not even do it by the key, i just jumped it at the starter. of course, no plugs in it either, makes it easier to turn over without building cylinder pressure.
just cranked it for a bit and i know the oil pump is pushing oil, as it pushed a little up to the oil cooler where the fitting was loose a little came out, so i tightened it up, and continued. i know its all pumped up. when i first turned it over, the tensioner goes up and down like a little shock, up and down. then after a little bit, its pumped up and stays up. so its ready to fire up

For trade: my motorcycle for your girlfriend...email
thanks guys for the help above
today im the happiest guy on the tex because of this
the paintjob is great and the colour turned out better than expectet
finally we can start assemble the car, hurra, hurra, hurra!!!!
and we began: 17.30 the car arrives at the workshop..
in with the engine! and the coilovers! and the cage!
the kw stuff looks so good i consider to drive around without the fenders
we started to mock up the exaust but it was allready 22pm
so we called it a day and gonna start fresh tomorrow morning....
lookin great, Jens....
all that beautiful white paint in the engine bay, man i would be scared to scratch it LOL i woulda covered it in the blue painters tape myself, but that sjust me bein a pu$$y... haha.
and i really like the blue, too.... [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
i did the engine mounts in a time when it was impossible to buy the beauty´s that are available now. here on the tex there are many people who have nicer ones, since i used the stock audi tt mounts that are like a big hunk of metal (but that was over a year ago)
i am very unhappy with them but they will work....
today we finished the exhaust [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
my chief mechanic ronny finished installing the new rear brakes and
sad that we run into major problems with the front brakes
it seem like we cant fit any brake pads into the front brakes
i am using the rotors of a corrado vr6 280mm x 22mm
and the caliper dont want to open enough to let the pads in
i dont know what to do since i tryed already 5 different pairs of pads
so it seems like i have to buy new calippers
someone got any idea how to come out of the situation cheap and fast??
thanks for the nice comments

i collect 80's motorsport parts- steering wheels, valve covers, wheels etc etc - dm me
only 2 weeks vacation left i dont think we can get it don on tinme due to the delay from the painters.
anyways we keep working [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
today was a little milestone in the build: the first silicone came on the engine many more to come
i mountet the oilcooler nicely and connectet it to the engine
on with the whole cooling radiator stuff!!!
we installed the fuel filler neck as well but i forgot the car keys at home i didnt need them for sooooooo long so i could not put on my fuel cap
i hope that my new brake calippers will show up tomorrow
that we can finish with the brakes.
the cables for the e-brake turning into a nightmare since the cables from a 16v scirocco are not produced anymore
i run around like a stoopid to find other cables that fit.
any ideas anyone???
i will try the passat ones tomorrow since the golf2 where to short

i see some red up there under the core support
but anyhow, the MK2 golf rear disc cables are the same PN as the rocco ones. i used them on my rabbit last year, for a month or two. i have them still, new condition, if you cant find any....
but you HAVE to get ones from a 16v car, the ones with REAR DISC brakes from the factory....

i didnt figure...
i forgot to tell we mounted the pedal cluster, rear stress bar
and the steering collum as well today
today i was drivin around to collect more parts.
finally the front brakes work, only after i spend another 250 bucks for
some brand new corrado vr6 calippers
we mounted the expansion tank and radiators and had a little fun
trying out some different intercooler piping possibilitis(spelling?)
my bro glued the carbon stickers on the dash and installed the radio
you will notice that the radio sits in the slot of the former ashtray...
no smoking in my car!!
tomorrow seats, belts and maybe dash?!
my bro has birthday tomorrow so he denies the full working effort
i had a similar problem with my g60 brakes on my mk2. they came on a previously swapped car so didnt know exactly what car they came from, not to mention they had no recognizable markings. i bought a few different pads and none fit so i just put the thinnest set on a belt sander until they fit.
anyway, everything looks great! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
at least i am not the only one!!
i wanted to try grinding down the pads as well but i decidet not to
since i could just go back to the dealer and exchange them.
i have still the problem with the ebrake cables even though that i mountd the rear calippers opposite way the cables are 3 inch short
i dunno whut 2 do
