      Made it a whole five miles. Idle ranged anywhere from 600rpm to 2500rpm

      Anyone know if idle adjustment screws are still available from VW?

      Its been raining on and off the last few days, I like the rain. Just now we gots THUNDER. Oooooohhh....

      Update- just had what sounded like Army Ordinance go off over head. House rattling type percussions from the sky, I'm temped to go outside but I don't need an upclose experience....

      I'm sure it's looking something like this:

      More great advice! If you decide it's a great idea todo your timing belt yourself, double check the tension before putti g everything back together. Otherwise you'll be ripping everything apart the next weekend when you can't stand the supercharger-esque whirl anymore. Damn it.

      I think he just pushed it out on the street to clear the driveway, and took that photo to fool us. As we know, anything on the instruments is "merely a suggestion", and I'm sure that cholland has mad Photoshop skilz ...so the car may actually be sitting in the back yard for all we know.....(and congrats, you drove your MkI before ME this year...mine is still sitting awaiting a new battery.)

      @tberk, you should move to the Great Lakes basin, we even get thunder snow, well, if we get winter. LOTS of noise from the skies here.

      @daun, no worries, doin' fine, so is the family. It has been a very chaotic week though. I think I may fire up a Scirocco this morning.....

      Well, iceKarl and roccoJulie were here last night for a short but enjoyable visit. Since Julie had some "Documentation concerns" (yeah, you do need to renew that...) Karl crossed the border with me. Since it is threatening rain, I took the faithful Bug, and I believe I said this within her earshot, "Alternators are the spawn of the devil"...

      Anyway, she decided to throw a nice bright red battery light on the way out of the airport. Kept thinking of bad places for it to die...pretty sure a bad charging situation on a TDI would just turn it off unannounced....so it was...okay, take a deep breath..onto the interstate.... Don't die....on the peace bridge...don't die, don't die, don't die...at the crest of the bridge!! WOOHOO, I can coast down if she dies...almost through customs....don't die....next four lane...don't die...into the tunnel...don't die, don't die....phew! Back in Dunnville....why are you idling funny? don't die....on the bridge...don't die....almost home! Oh!!! The radio died...don't die, don't die, don't die...YAY!!! an ABS light...keep on swimming.....and an airbag light......in the garage!!!! Try a restart...at expectation...perfect silence except for the motion of the key.... 10pointsomething volts.....

      So now I am gonna drag my sorry ass out there and see if the battery will charge with the trickle, and see if there is still a belt of some type down there. In retrospect, I suspect the battery. The Porch got one, Klaus has one on order, so she likely wants one too. May as well just order a case lot once that synchronicity shiit starts.

      LOL!!!

      Rode with Andy over to a model show in Fairborn this afternoon in the Focus. Battery light came on part-way through the trip, so maybe you're charging problems are channeling south of the border as well.

      Oh that is too funny! Now the next question is what German words the Focus has learned from the Heins.....

      Well, damn. I was trying to show some restraint and not have it be the RSS:TBerk channel, all news, all the time.

      (besides the fact that I'm up to 2010 on 'Wapsi Square' and counting...), I've been scheming a plan to return to the land Of Scirocco Operators.

      Still a scheme, not yet fertilized eggs yet, my last attempt was abortive soon after take off. weeHawk; on to other things.... < sniff >

      Still, my arms are strong, my vision clear, my heart is true- I can be a nut job and still wrench, me hearties... arrrr

      I was working at my jobz to make money for overdue car projects.

      And with a 45-minute each-way commute, I have plenty of time to scheme on building this Titian red '85 that's been sitting in my hangar way too long for DD duty. I do have a few things I *can* work on, but bottom line is that before I can go much further I NEED SOME F*CKING STOCK SPRINGS because the race springs that are on it are just too harsh for my tastes. I'm not taking it off the jackstands until I replace them. The problem is that I don't have any stock springs. I've begged and pleaded on here but so far nobody has come (firmly) forward with what I need.

      Yeesh, see what Scirocco withdrawal is doing to me? (Yes, I have a 16v but I'm waiting on a part AND the insurance policy forbids its use as a DD.)

      Well, you could have the stock springs I took off the headache, but they would need both JB and duct tape..they were not in on piece! And was there someone up here that had a scheme involving me bringing some to you? I don't remember who, but it seems to ring a bell.

      So as if life here wasn't enough of a mess, I hauled the Bug off for what is likely an alternator. Which is easiest installed after removal of the front end. yay, that will be quick. I hate alternators. The plane is not progressing...the center needs to go to the structures guy and that involves the truck which needs a universal....which involves my son not being up to his armpits in work leftover from last week. Yep, living the dream. But I am not complaining.
