You know those little white packets that come in electronic and photo equipment, and medication, (silica gel/crystal packages)well they are great for keeping moisture out of your tool boxes. I even put a few of the bigger ones in a zipper seal plastic bag with my MIG welding wire spools to keep the wire from rusting. Works great!

If you pack your heater channels with them, your bug will stay fresh forever, and you can dry your driveway just by running your bug up and down it a few times! j/k.

You can get a big box of the dissectant stuff by buying the refill packs of "Damp Rid". It works the same way those little silica packs work.
Used to use it to dry out Mushrooms, just put them in a container with some of the stuff and seal the lid and they will be dehydrated in a day or twon with out any heat. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]
So yeah that stuff is awesome.

You can also get it at just about any well stocked paint jobber. They use it in dessicant dryers for air lines... [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif[/img]

I know about buying silica packs commercially. I'm just frugal, (ok cheap) and don't like to throw usable stuff away [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Good to have more specific information though about where I can pick up larger quantities if needed.

BTT, (Shit this was on page 13!)

Try this for setting valves.

Find TDC for #1, both rockers/valves should be loose. If you're no sure do what Nickster said by pulling the plug, and checking for the piston. Set #1 valves, and before moving the engine, you can set ONE valve for #2 as well, (I think it's the intake valve, it's the one with the loose rocker/vavle). Again without moving the engine, pop the other valve cover off and you can also set ONE valve on #4, (I think it's the exhaust, again it's the one with the loose rocker/vavle). Ok, so now you have 4 total valves set of the 8.

NOW turn the engine 360, and do the valves for #3, (again the valves/rockers should be loose), and the remaining valves on 2, and 4, ONE each, (again 4 total). Done. I learned this trick form an old-time VW service tech, (Russ Wolf on Type3.org)
