The last parts shipment came in today, just in time for an absence of skilled hands.
The mechanic assisting me isn't available until Tuesday or Wednesday.
This last package had the Windage tray, and other essential seals.
I later discovered the oil dipstick was not going to work on the GTI motor.
The shaft on the block is short and the tube too small in diameter to fit the funnel portion.
The Rabbit Convertible engine has a long flared dipstick tube, it fits perfectly to the funnel.
That is just fine, because I discovered the original GTI one in the trunk recently! It's good!
I guess that is not the last of it. I still need exhaust parts!
I want to buy a 4-5" round stainless muffler, (2.5" in. & ex.) with slanted Ti burnt tip.
Just header, cat, pipe & muffler.
Use 2.25" pipe, weld and/or bend here.
What does a resonator do?
What will happen if I exclude a resonator?
There was recently a slight setback; the Intermediate Shaft bearings I ordered were too small on the inside diameter by about 20 thousandths of an inch, even though the part numbers matched.
Catalog error; A new set had to be ordered; they now fit perfectly.
