      I hope that all is well and nobody got hurt. Time to learn how to use a torque wrench. :D

      Even the most experienced CIS techs have not gutted a fuel distributor.

      There was a time that carb cleaner cleaned everything and would take the skin off your arm. Not anymore. I would today's...

      I second the idea of the Mk3 wiper motor. Slightly faster and living in the PNW, it gets used a lot. Less than normal thanks for global warming.

      I lengthened my oil dipstick tube so it sits right below the oil drain plug. If you remove the plug, you can see the end of the tube. That allows me to suck the oil out thru the dipstick tube. More...

      Some JH heads were hydraulic but I did not know that the oil pan was removed. So that solves that question.

      As simple as the pan is to remove, maybe that would be something to think about.

      So you got 90k on the bottom end and you just installed a magnet. I suspect you got 90k worth of metal deposits attached to the magnet. I believe over time, the deposits will be less.

      The bottom...

      You sound like most of my clients so do not take offense when I say this. You have no clue what you are doing/saying. The only thing that does is the Diesel ECU.

      That ECU will do what it was...

      I'm not certain if it's worth a whole bunch. There are side draft intake manifolds out there. Sure, they do not say ABT, but that would not matter much.

      Now if it said Callaway, then you might...

      I know nothing about VW's CIS-e but Mercedes has their own way of controlling that system.

      There is no way you can get 20 with a bad coolant temp sensor. The only way you could get that is with...

      Used for diagnostics. Since you did not post the colors it's hard to say for certain.

      Some jobs are pretty basic so work instructions are not needed.

      The linkages are locked on the ball by a plastic tab. You need to release this tab so it comes off. If you don't, it will break and...

      Look at the values with Rosstech and see what is not right. This should be done with the key on/engine off. Does the MAF sensor read 0? Coolant temperature about right? Air temp?

      I never...

      Don't get me wrong but I believe you are way over your head with this project you are doing. I'm not saying you can't or are not capable.

      To lower the compression ratio, you need to increase the...

      Not to sound like a jerk like I usually do but since you are there, just look under the car and see what/where it's leaking. Surely you do not want me to travel there. It's going to take awhile.

      Yup, the complete strut is not available. I was thought you were thinking insert.

      I love the Summit picture, that would not fit any VW Mk1 but maybe a rear shock on a pickup.

      FYI, it's illegal to sell a used catalyst. I'm not saying you cannot find one, but if you do not, that is the reason. Aftermarket catalysts usually do not last very long so if you find a cheap...
