Well... Been quiet with the golf. It developed a problem with wiring. You could pull ignition wiring off and it would still run.

Also rounded the splines the inner cv sits on so needed a new driveshat, pretty much settled that I was putting the 9a in then.
So went into the shed to build the engine back up... Earlier than planned.


Engine sat half stripped with a black rocker I had.


Ready to go in...


So Sunday morning, me, coup and Jack assembled to start. My camera doesnt work so coup took pictures... Blame him.


Sat waiting...


All coming apart





Ready to come out...


Out, sorting some wiring... More on this later


Shes in...
Might aswell go for a close up....




So onto wiring... Tucked the lighting loom so had to weld some bolts to hold the loom away from wheels... Down side of tucking looms.






On to Tuesday morning. I was worried my 4 branch wouldnt fit. Bought it off ebay about 4 years ago when I wanted to get another mk2, pretty sure it was for an Abf.

So thought id fit it up and start on engine wiring being plugged in.




Thats it for now. Theres some pics from today but havnt uploaded yet.
As soon as wirings where I want ill be shortning and lengthening where and if needed.
Hoping to get it looking neat this time round, instead of just chucking it together.

Still not wired this damn golf up.
3 cars on the drive and work doesnt leave alot of golf time. Dark when i get home.
The other morning i did fit some banjo bolts and 2 new temp sensors...
Today the coil.

Also found out my ignition switch cowling is broken previous owner has used what looks like chemical metal and silicone to hold the stalk tabs on... Then run a earth to the earth box under the dash... So i think this may have actually been the cause of my idnition problems and such.

New one on order with a new ignition switch.

Heres some pictures. Not very interesting but pictures speak a thousand words they say.







Maybe, just maybe tommorow you will all see a update

Well, well, well i have done something! The otherday i put silicone water pipes on and a new metal pipe.
Pictures to come about that.
But 1st i have ran the fuel lines. New filter(s)
Thats right 2 because i wanted a little inline see through one to see when fuel was coming though. Its a little further down that id have liked but it doesnt matter.

Also put it back down on its weels and put the centre section on. The plan is to get it running and drive it to work to make all the back box and such up.
Tommorow hopefully ill put driveshafts in and hubs back onto suspenion and sit it on the front wheel. Which means its time to move onto the inside and sort that mess out.

Anyway onto the pictures






And its on its back wheels finally



Now the best bit. The coolant pipes

wow :shocked:. i'm not so sure I would chance the small plastic fuel filter on a k-jet fuel system. might be ok, but there is a lot off pressure there :wink:

Im fully aware of the pressure. We shal see what happens.
Theorectically it should be fine. Its not running a k-jet fuel pump. So the regulator on the side of the block is making the required pressure to run it.
