I recognise the Mk2 in your sig mate, not to sure where I wouldve have spotted it and when, and if its the same Mk2 as the light blue one in the pics of Mod Nats then hats off to you - thats some mighty turn around.

Nice Very Happy

ill update


gearbox decided to give up a so it ment i had to drive from hitchen down the m1 to hemel with 1st gear, so replaced that





removed the engine to do so and replaced a couple of bits to sort oil leaks.


thanks to a realy shitty design by vw i couldnt get the exhaust front pipe back on to the manifold so i decided to put a gti exhaust mani and front pipe on as it bolts together insted of cliping. but thanks to another realy realy shitty design by vw you have to take the inlet mani off to take the exhaust mani off but there are two bolts that are completely unaccessable with the engine in the bay wich left me with this two days before moving house!





i had to tow it to my new place.


it is all appart now whch gave me the oppotunity to do a couple of mods while i had it all appart. cut off all the spikes on the preheater in the inlet mani as its restrictive





while the head is appart i might aswell put in an uprated cam and rebuild the carb as it was getting a bit rough. just waiting for my gaskit kit and the new cam and then it can all go back together
