Goodness, not sure how I missed this reply! I'll have to take you up on that this summer Brian! I went to the site and also saw the blue scirocco! I recall reading and seeing pictures of your car in vw vortex. Man, that is one sweet looking rocco. Dad used to have a green 1980 that we stupidly let go. I was in love with that car. Still hope to find a good "S" model one day to restore.vwleadfoot said:More info on my projects at http://www.mk1motorsports.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Go to the "Kias" page to see the S6 I am working on right now.
Sorry for the delayed reply....I'll be in the garage all day tomorrow(sunday) until around 7 or 8 if anyone wants to come by. 45650 Clearbrook Lane california MD 20619 Brian 301-247-9353 Come to the big yellow steel barn.

Hey man, sending you a PM. Fellow MG'er told me about this.vwleadfoot said:Although all I am getting here is crickets chirping....
I'm hosting my annual car gathering August 18 and 19 weekend if anyone is interested. Campers are welcome. Although the link here is for Sciroccos I am also an Audi nut (x3) and would love to see some old Audis here as well. Hope some of you can make it. Details in the link.

Yup. It is. Good to hear from you. The car is doing well and I've gotten a lot done on it in the last few months, but it still needs much more. (It sat in the corner of the garage lying in wait since I got it from you.) It took me a while to FINALLY come to the determination that it wasn't anything simple. The clutch simply needed to be replaced because it was occasionally not releasing and therefore making for difficult shifts and walking forward while the clutch pedal was pressed. I'm guessing that it either has broken PP springs or the release bearing is getting stuck.dustin4kq said:im guessing its my old car? i still miss it, glad its coming back to life! Wish i was closer id at least give hand getting it in and out.
Saturday if you can make it. Above post has the number. Do you have a 200 wagon as well? If you do, I'd love to look at yours for relay placement because my after run cooling program in this car is a mess and I am suspecting bad/missing relays.T44Avant said:when is this clutch job happening ?
And btw I thought you'd be interested to know that, as suspected, it was the clutch release bearing that was sticking on the guide sleeve causing the clutch to only partially release. Someone did a really bad job on the last clutch that was put in. Stripped bolts that were reused and I don't even think that they lubed the guide sleeve. Ugh....hack mechanics.dustin4kq said:im guessing its my old car? i still miss it, glad its coming back to life! Wish i was closer id at least give hand getting it in and out.
Yes please. Can I just paypal you for shipping?dustin4kq said:yes i was curious, thanks for passing that along, glad it wasn't the trans. Im not sure how many miles we put on that thing? im thinking 40-50k? it was fine for years but there at the end it was getting impossible to shift. I got it in a partial trade from a guy who got it at the local auction. It had a good amount of miles on it and then i swapped the cluster from another car that was pretty damn close mileage wise (20vt i think). im pretty sure the odo was working when i got it but stopped pretty soon. also, I think i have the rear diff mount if you're interested. I suspect it was causing some on/off throttle clunk. It mounts at the center rear of the rear diff i believe, its two pieces.
