      CRX rad for the win, that or an early mk1 1.6 or 1.4 liter euro topfill rad.

      I have seen them half the size, but identical to the scirocco topfill rads.

      If you are talking about the pic of the rod#1 and the bearing surface being scarred, i forgot to mark that one, and have it reoriented properly, the bearing tangs are on the same not oposing sides right?

      Correct, same sides. I was just making sure. If it wasn't, it would cause some problems though.

      Crank no, rod has major dark discoloration, almost like it got so hot when there was literally no rod bearing on either side of rod#1.

      Rod may have ran like that for roughly 70 miles.

      I really cannot afford new rods, but it looks like I may have to hit up I.E.

      those were Scat H-beam rods from BBM.

      Can't I have the crank journal cleaned up, or whole crank reground?

      Have a spare OBD1 Block in the basement, may steal the crank from that.

      Wish I could send the rods to Scat and hope they can take care of me, maybe just sell me one rod.

      Pistons are mint...

      New pump, pan, gaskets, and oil pressure gauge, and oil temp gauge going in, kicking myself for not sorting that after my inital ABA Swap, but never grabbed the sending units of the JH, to work with the cabby triple gauge setup...

      Any thoughts on the Dark Coloration on Rod#1???

      do not use the crank or rod. get another crank thats good and get a new rod that matches the others.
      if you reuse that rod. it will NOT last.

      Understood, Yes sir!

      Calling Scat now.

      Got this covered, BBM can source me one rod from SCAT just need the big end and small end weights, so they can match the rods I bought OG.
