      I have been a 2.slo jetta driver for several yrs now but recently came across a VR Golf and now im hooked. wasnt runnin, needed work, TLC whatever you wanna call it. Finally got it runnin but long story short seems I blew the headgasket. Soooo I decided to pull the motor and do a lil R&R. Figured I'd also do the chains and the clutch. Figured Id let you in on this wild and wacky journey. Enjoy

      I forgot to take a pic w/ the throwout bearing on. The clutch kit came w/ a brand new throwout bearing. That wud def suck if I forgot to put that on LOL When doin somethin like this its better to take your time so you dont forget anything. Its a swapped in motor of a early VR. Its not a VR from a jetta or a golf. Its actually a corrado VR.

      the guide sleeve bolts to the case of the tranny in the bellhousing. the shaft goes through it and the throwout bearing slides over it.

      Howdy, nice post.

      How did your upper chain tensioner, and lower guide/tensioner look when you pulled the timing chain cover off? At how many miles on the engine?

      Thanks,

      The kit that was put on was pnw, but didnt want to take any chances do I put in brand new kit anyways, there was no wear on the guides. They looked really good! Now I am selling them b/c I dont need them. Supposedly the mileage is 115k.

    24. 04-08-2008 10:49 PM #24
