Default Re: I aquired another VW

I almost forgot to tell ya's about my engine, after I replaced the P/C's, once I got it all back together and started it up it was idling at around 2000 RPM (the linkage was to short and keeping the throttle open a bit) I let it run like that for about 5 minutes.

When I realized why it was idling so high I shut it off and waited to see if oil started leaking out, there was none. I also checked to see if it had excessive crankcase pressure which it had almost none of. The hose that comes out of the oil filler I help my thumb over it while running to see if it builds up pressure, which it didn't.

So now I need to sync the carbs and I'm ready to get back on the road again

I hope to get my disc brakes finished and on the rear before next weekend, then I'm gonna drive the hell out of it until next winter gets here when I can do the work I wanna do like chop top (maybe) as well as suicide doors and lower it down a bunch
"Can't" is a word that means your to lazy to even try.
