      it wud cost bout $JA 4000......my biggest dilemma is to scour the junk yard to find the right pulley ihave looked in between the rain fall but to no avail....the P/s pulley specs are .....I.D = 100mm...depth or offset =29mm ..... if you are not clear feel free to query.....thw W/P pulley specs (with inspiration from the A/C delete pulley by BAHNBRENNER)..... the O.D =the same O.D as the original pulley... i just lathed off the rear portion of the V groove and flattened the outer lip.... then i got the fan pulley from the audi i.8t A4 ,lathe out the center and pressed it over the other pulley and tacked welded it ,then lathed down the weld bumps

      the audi 1.8t A4 fan assy'
      the pulley is behind the fan clutch shown
      ellocolindo PM me for a link up w/ your bro inlaw (if its not 2 larte) and lets see wht i can do

      this is a typical sunny day



      in between the down pour i have been busy looking for a place to stick my megasquirt and in looking i wound up pulling down the whole car !!!!!whew!!!! i what i have noticed is that almost evrybody who has documented their install don't say where they have put their "box" and i need my glove box

      belt finally arrives from kingston after a long period of searching ...its a 5pk-1575 and it fits beautifully i use 5 instead of 6 as in the VW width because the P/S pully is 1 groove narrower i cud lathe it in but the 5 can do

      great man. you solved the all in one serpentine belt set-up for the 16v.
      what cranck pulley or harmonic balancer did you use?
      how do i order the serpentine belt?
      do you have a car or engine model that uses it.?
      did you get the pictures of the fog light set-up?
      interetsed in trading some headlight washer nozzles fr the pulley fo rthe power steering pump?

      nope i didnt recieved the foglite setup....not in junk mail either

      so by using the mk3 serpentine belt set-up; did you mill down the pulley because it is free or very easy for you to have acces to a machine shop?
      because i do not have that luxury and want to see if there is a dircet drop in for the harmonic dampener .

      !!!!!!NO!!!!! nothing was milled...... evry thing is bolted on as it comes from the MK3 golf.....the only mod i did was to the bracket the last hole to the top of the bracket (where it goes over the w/p i had to make a bracket ,put a bolt & nut thru the hole and turn it towards the original anternator bracket piece that bolt onto the front of the block also this is what it looks like

      see the bolt ??? thats the bracket i made cuz the 9a block does not have that extra bolt hole as the ABA blocks ...thats the ONLY mod evry thing else is as it comes off the mk3 ...o btw i left off the small V-belt pulley(dont need it....bump)
