There's no difference between the bolts for the 1.9 or 2.1 engines that I can see. One should be 31.9mm the other 45mm

I suppose the only other option is that the threads in the DJ crank go deeper.... was a/c only fitted to the 2.1 ?

Thanks David,

Im pretty certain US Vanagon's run A/C with both size engines.

JB Weld sorted today BTW. :ok So heads will be ready to get one final rub down, clean mating surfaces, and add fire rings with a spot of Holymar.

Was suppose to be winging my way to see family. But big ( in age l mean ) sis is feeling unwell with sinitus so has rainchecked today. Hopefully on road tomorrow to London. Then to Chichester for a bit of sailing.
Back to the slooowest top end rebuild next week when heads go back on.
I might give the longer 2.1 bolt another try once heads are torqued down.
Regards and signing off until Weds.
Regards

True, I must be mad. But aside from that it will take me four months to clean this damn thing let alone rebuild it!
