Re: Gearbox seal leak into clutch..... Advice

^ WHS. As it happens I replaced the seal on my RJES B/H a few weeks ago, as the guide tube was no longer secure I had to disassemble, re-bond the tube back in place and install a fresh seal. I found the trickiest bit of the job to be fitting the fresh seal so it sat true (it's installed 'backwards' ...

Re: Anyone actually been getting their syncro dusty/muddy?

My pickup gets used more or less daily (fresh MOT, no advises :) ). My kombi is still 'resting'. My only other vehicle is my pushbike !

Re: Syncro diesel engine bars

The only difference is the position of the rear mounting brackets for the bashplate. These can be cut off and re-welded if necessary. I have some spare bars stored away but I can't recollect which version they are, I'll have a look.. E D I T: Here's a pic from when I did my AFN swap, showing the ver...

Re: Exhausts and MOT

Assuming you plan to take it back for a retest after doing some repairs, I think your simplest course is to establish what exactly the tester thinks should be fixed. From the state of your tailpipe it would not surpise me if there was a leak or other problem with the rest of the exhaust system. Mayb...

Re: Exhausts and MOT

The information on your fail certificate plus a conversation with the tester should answer your question.

Re: 1.8T Clocks

You could upgrade to later clocks if you wanted, and you'd get several additional features such as the trip computer with MPG and even distance-to-empty on the later ones. I do a kit for this, see my website. But if you wanted to stick with the standard instruments that's possible. The engine would ...

Re: Diesel pump suffix

It may still be possible to get to the Bosch 'E-Cat' online, pop in the Bosch pump part number, and get a fair bit of parts info. I did this a while back when I was looking into the various gen2 VW TDI engines and it was quite helpful. For VW part numbers, sites with 'scraped' EKTA data such as 7zap...

Re: 1.9 TDI Engine

Normally a TDI turbo would be supplied with the actuator already attached and adjusted. The ECU controls the N75 valve to adjust the turbo wastegate actuator.

Re: 1.9 TDI Engine

The AGR is a 90hp engine with a Bosch VP pump and a wastegate turbo. It is a Euro 2 engine, and was replaced by the 90hp ALH which is Euro 3 and has a VNT turbo. If you've managed to fit the AGR engine at 55 degrees into a T3 and need a new turbo, Brickwerks do a custom turbo with a 'JX' style housi...

Re: Any 1.8 20v Turbo build threads?

I suspect there's a bit of variation depending on whether the T3 is a bus or pickup, and the 1.8T is 'early' or 'late'. Also having fabrication facilities vs. being dependent on readymade conversion parts makes a big difference. I've done several different 1.8T harness conversions, ranging from an e...

Re: Warning about Lemförder upper balljoints

The boxes in the pic are for the lower balljoint and the tie rod end, not for the upper balljoint. PS. Also, I'd suggest not changing any balljoints that are still servicable, and until the MOT man says to, as any replacements are likely to last a fraction of the time of the originals. I'd had an ad...

Re: Warning about Lemförder upper balljoints

Hi James, that's interesting, 'cos the part number is different.. Maybe they had a different pn for the german and chinese versions ? (Frantic Google ensues..) PS. I loves a bit of surface rust on NOS parts, often an encouraging sign :) PPS. 10159 03 is the lower balljoint, so the box in the pic doe...
