Default Re: Back into VW's

This past weekend I finally got around to spring maintenance and upgrades.

Nothing wrong with working on blocks, right?!

After pulling off the shroud, I found this little slice of heaven.

These sum bitches were evicted!! Fire "may" have been involved afterward... but that is merely a rumor.

I had noticed last year when the motor was out that the urethane mounts were junk.

And indeed that was the case!

So I got a set of heavy duty rubber ones. Sorry I didn't get a pic of the front mount, but it was tight enough under the car that I didn't feel like contorting into a pretzel to get a pic. But here are the ones you can see.

While the engine was out, I went ahead and checked the head torque, reset the valves, changed the oil, synced the carbs, and upgraded the entire ignition system. Now I am running a MagnaSpark II.

I haven't test driven it yet, but it does seem to respond better.

I still have some odds and ends to do to other parts of the car, but that will have to wait a couple weeks.

Oh, and here is a video of her running. Sorry about the shitty camera.... I have GOT to get a new one. It takes good pics, but the video sux ballz!

If one of my buddies pulled into my driveway and got out of that, I'd punch him right in the colon.

That thing looks like a blue clitoris.
