      Thats the thing its not even bbm. they werent involved with this transaction at all thats just where he worked. I think that these actions speak of his integrity and i imagine theyd be the same.

      Got the new head on tried to crank it and nothing....So i decided when i set my timing i never checked my rotor to see if my intermidiate shaft had moved....It was 180* out...so i fixed it and it literally cranked twice and fired. It sounds f-ing awesome!!!

      They do that
      I freaked out when i put new lifters in for the first time the other week!!!

      I just ran it for 5 mins on idle, turned key off. Checked for any leaks ect, turned it back on a the ticking was gone

      Good effort on the new engine, Taken it for a drive yet?

      just to work and back but i need to play with my distributor a bit mor. lifters quieted down a little bit but their still noisey. Cant expect much else with it being a fresh head though.

      I have no idea if they had soaked in oil. The head was stripped down surfaced hot tanked and assembled at a machine shop in Bend in a 3 day window.

      So one of my caps blew off on a dig to somewhere past 100mph so im going to go to the K&N filters like 86franklin has in the near future. Im waiting on one of my dads old buddies to send me my new subi scoop to weld onto my hood. Then itll be done for a while till i can get a turbo manifold intercooler and turbo for a good deal one of these days...If i do it to soon my wife will literally divorce me over this car/project...LOL

      always mixed opinions on doing this,

      i reckon if you have good oil pressure they will fill up in no time you cant do any damage to them in the time it takes to fill them, and what sorta dick would rev the snot out of a cold engine anyway

      i let mine idle for 3-4 mins, turned off and waited 3-4 mins, then started it back up, lifter noise gone.

      Good work on getting it going well mate, whens the hood scoop going on??

      I'm still fighting my flooding issues. I'm starting to think I shouldn't have switched from my counter-flow setup to full ABA at this point. Give me a week to sort my issues out and I'll be ok. Especially once I go to boost it.

      Well, I'm still around!

      My bike carb'd ABA still doesn't run, I still don't have my manifold welded, and it doesn't look like that will happening too terribly soon. Glad to see this thread still going and wish I had something to add to it. Wait! maybe I do? Ran across this in the Cabriolet forum and don't recall seeing it here. Here's a good link for info on wiring up the knock box ignition setup: http://www.driversfound.com/scirocco...e/knocksensor/

      So, as to why mine won't be running any time reasonably soon...in the process of trying to sell my Wrangler to fund the Cabby an interesting trade was offered up. So, now my mostly complete VRT MK2 Jetta is the main focus to have some fun before selling to fund the Cabby build. Wish me luck and no boost addiction!

      Can't figure out why one of my floats won't close hoping once I figure that out my car will be operational again.

      take it out and put it in a bowl of water! one of mine did the same thing. it was cracked but i couldnt tell by just looking at it. good chance its cracked. also look at the rubber seal on the shut off needle thing that the float actuates it might be in bad shape.

      I'm thinking I'm going to not be a cheap ass and buy a replacement float and needle seal kit.

      I keep reading through this thread (more like scanning at this point) and can't seem to find the post about which K&N filters to get for the R1 carbs.

      Anyone help? So close to starting this bad boy up

      I think I would prefer dual. They look like they have a shallower profile. However a part # for both would be OK.
