      Meyle is the cause of most electrical issues. Their products are not really that good. URO is in the same boat.

      Have you done any real testing or just throw a bunch of time and parts at it. Typically following a good diagnostic path and real testing will point you to the problem real quick. Do you have a...

      This is the best advice here. Use and OEM filter too. I prefer MANN.

      What makes you think that adding a mixture of snake oil will make the engine lubricate better? Spend more time in the owners...

      The filter does catch it. It's usually debris that is after the filter. There are times the filter does fail but I would attribute that to a poor quality/$ filter or a lack of maintenance.

      It's funny that the basic items are often over looked. It's sad that a professional does not check them before throwing in 3 ECU's. Hard to understand that he's a tuning expert. I hope you did not...

      I believe so. I have an account with TT so I made a call and they shipped the parts. I only purchased the intake valves and retainers since I could source everything else locally and much less. The...

      When I was researching this angle, I found recommendations from 15-20 degrees. I believe I'm real close to the max on that number. They also recommend a straight section before you change angles. I'm...

      There has been several different switches used on the 020. Since that is the case, there are a few different connectors used on the vehicle harness. If you do not care about authenticity, hack away....

      I tack welded the tube and finished with with 56 silver braze. I could have brazed it completely, but I could not figure out a way to hold it in place while brazing. The single tack allowed me to...

      The only assistance I can offer is posting on the Mk1 site. A good wiring diagram would help and basic knowledge of how electricity works. One more thing, a DVOM.

      The air fuel ratio must be correct for it to run right. Electronically you say is right but what about mechanically? Fuel pressure? Injector size? PVC system working correctly. How much is the crank...

      I would find out what the cause of the noise is before I purchased any parts.

      Does the engine make noises when it's running? Does it run? If not, then your engine is probably ok.

      Does the...

      Probably because the belt was not even looked at.

      But then again, it's a 1928 VW Rabbit pickup. Not certain they had belts back then. The oldest car I was trained on was a 1885 Benz Patent...

      Meyle and URO are parts to stay away from. Vemo can make some good cheap stuff, but after two in-tank pumps on my Cabriolet, I can say with experience, stay away from their fuel pumps. Even you get a...

      And past the fuel filter. Lets hope not much. CIS is expensive. You might as well replace the intank fuel pump. Do not buy a Vemo, they have a life cycle of just a few hours. Stick with VDO.
