Fixed my cruise control switch. A couple months ago after I got the linkage and vacuum portions of the cruise system squared away the switch decided to stop working. I found a spare at the junkyard, but after following the 20v alternative diagnosis it appeared to be bad too. Unfortunately the diagnosis instructions kept mentioning having to replace the wiring, so I cut apart the wiring while disassembling my spare without thinking only to find that testing the leads right at the switch was giving me the same symptoms.
Fast forward to today and I've got the steering wheel off to replace it with a less used one and I decide to continue working on the cruise. While testing continuity again it hits me that the switch itself has the issue and not the wiring, so I tore my spare down further to find the circuit board to be corroded. After a quick scrub with the wire brush all tests are positive, so I repeated the repair on my original switch, without cutting the wires, and all circuits are reading correctly. I'm confident tomorrow my test drive will be successful. With how much I drive I will be extremely grateful to have cruise back.
After (with a layer of di-electric grease):

my 90 20v quattro has been in the garage for the third week now....
t-belt, water pump, this and that. old thermastate was nearly in two pieces for some reason....
new rad, motor mounts...
got rid of air box, using K&N on custom maf adaptor. Gonna build heat shield.
Oh i snapped a sub front bolt..... Cudn't find any torque figures so I thought it's a 10.8 plus my mk4 asks for 100ft or smth.... So I decided lets start with 60ftlb...... and it snapped! son of a bitch....
Oh soon to come.... depo e-codes with bixenon! already in r some clear corners. Oh and yellow 100w fogs r on the way!
So mine power steering pump failed, cracked housing. I could not justified the price for ZF p.s. Pump. And that I converted to regular brake booster. I hated hydraulic brake system anyways. anyway, I retro fitted 10v p.s. Pump from 90q. It was free. I will use my skills to make it work. With 2 hrs modify and spacer and drilling into bracket and longer bolts. No more leaks.
so i was bored so we made something neat.
i had a Euro plate tub but i sent it to my good friend Chris (varia) as it was one of the final pieces he needed to complete his S2 clone. and he sent me his US spec rear tub in return.
rear license plate delete plate? because RACECAR!
also, while i was being bored, i decided to run the car up on the new lift, and practice some clutchless shifts with the new Dogbox trans. no boost piping on the car, so no boost just free flowing.

Finally made some time to install the 034 injectors I picked up earlier this year. I really should have done a before and after drive, but jumped right in not having driven the car in a week or so. Still the new injectors feel really smooth both cruising around and full throttle. As I work out some of the other small issues I want to before driving the car regularly again I'll have to report back.
Only had 2 of 5 broken Hitachi injectors, but 2 of the good ones look like they've been replaced since the car hit the street 245k miles ago. Not bad all considering. If anyone wants a number of the good injectors shoot me an offer.
I noticed I'm in need of a new cylinder 3 plug wire and the rubber mounts for the pressure regulator were sheared off. If anyone has any leads for those items it would be much appreciated.
Well yesterday I finaly got the 80q on the lift. Took care of a lot of little things it needed. Fixed the exhaust(resonator blew out), welded the downpipe, got all my heatshields held back up, put on my g60s, repaired the rear brake line from master, replaced 2 of the tires, and ballanced the other 2. Now im going to install my crank sunroof panel and replace the gromets in the trunk for the wreing. Next weekend it will be time to pull out the tie rods and "unfreeze" them so I can get it aligned.
Finaly feel like I have done something to her
