    Thread: 8V Forum FAQ

    1. 03-03-2008 06:07 PM #101

      I had a question for you I asked Geroge of Toywagen and this was his response to using a stock non-ac pulley on a 90 jetta.... obviously there is a discrepancy of what will work......any further info you can offer will be helpful thanks
      If you use the stock non-ac pulley you need to change the other pulleys as well(crank). My pulley lines up the belt with the crank pulley that is there already. All you have to do to change it over is change the alt pulley and belt.

      Apparently this does not work on Jettas if your looking for a long term solution

      a cam with a G stamped on it does not make it the G-grind solid lifter cam that people rave abt. most 8v cams have that G stamp.

      is this the same cus mine is stock standard from the factory

      pretty sure the g grind is gti solid lifter only, if it ahs the big G on it its probobly not the Gti cam.

      my 92 gti 8v hydraulic cam has a G stamped on it, i was under the impression that 90-92 gti came with that cam stock, the biggest one of the mk2's.

      check the head
      4 caps = hydro
      5 caps = solid

      help please.
      i purchased a 90 cabriolet back in november. at the time it was running fine but needed a new tranny. i was able to drive it up onto the dolly though when i bought it. it sat over the winter and in the spring i did the tranny swap plus some other upgrades to the brakes and suspension. nothing though to the engine. now i can't get it to run. it tries to fire but it isn't getting any fuel. the pump is working fine. i disconnected the fuel line to the rail and had a friend hit the key and gas squirted out so that's fine. i've got good spark to all the plugs but it appears that the electric fuel injectors aren't working. any ideas on what could be causing them not to receive a signal? i'd appreciate any help. m_shea@hotmail.com
      thanks
      mike

      I'm looking for a 1.8 8v timing belt procedure for a 89 Golf 1.8 auto. First link in this FAQ doesn't work and I didn't do well searching.
      I found an excellent procedure for the 2.0 here but now I need a 1.8.
      Recommendations/links please.
      Thanks,
      Dave

      If you are going to stick with the JH head (or any counterflow head with CIS) then you won't have to do any extra wiring. The fuel injectors, intake manifold, and related plumbing will stay the same if you swap a 2.0L block underneath.
      However, if you are looking to use the 2.0L block with it's crossflow head, then there will be several modifications necessary. Most people that continue to use the CIS injection do not use the crossflow head, due to the amount of modifications needed. In the end, it's a lot of work for virtually no gain.
