    It does look good but how does it shift?

    It still has a 4 speed sadly. Soon, perhaps next week that will be different.

    Installed a new water pump and thermostat this evening. I think I went overboard on the t-stat, bought a 92 degree Celcius.
    The temperature gauge is reading way higher than I like. Top radiator hose feels really hot but I can still grab it though. The
    fan did not come on...
    I wont be able to put a cooler one in until Saturday. Think it will be ok? I'd hate to ruin a 1.5

    After thinking about it...I doubt the accuracy of the gauge. And I have a feeling there is still air in the system.
    Lets check things in the morning.

    Ah, finally! The Rabbit now has a 5 speed!

    Thanks for the home made short shift linkage Gordy!!

    Shifts like a brand new car.

    Hard to imagine I managed to pass a couple of cars on the freeway too.

    Stay tuned. Poor bunny has been out of commission for a while...time to buy some engine gasket and bearing sets.

    I think I'm going to stick with a 1.5...I haven't been able to find a 1.6 gas.

    Why would you want a gas engine? Just get a 1.6 diesel

    I talked to Joe about this car, he said its had problems with the same cylinder on 3 different blocks. I suggested having the fuel pump pressure tested because from what is sounds like it was too lean on that cylinder.

    That's good info! Thanks.

    I was already getting 4 new injectors and now I'm going to have the pump checked out for sure.

    Which reminds me, does anyone recommend a shop or person around here to get the pump checked/rebuilt?

    IIRC there's a diesel shop in Portland that can check it out, don't recall the name though. Joey @ DJM would know.

    Make sure the injectors are pop tested. IIRC should be around 134BAR. I can rebuild the pump, but I dont have a fancy machine to test it on. Well, I usually have a really fancy machine for testing and it is a car. Tyler is referring to DFIS in Ptown and they knwo IDIs and TDIs pretty well. Seattle injector is local and does lots of IDI stuff which is what you need.

    Thanks for the info Chris! I've heard good things about Seattle Injector. Might give them a try, unless you feel you could guarantee your work without having a car handy

    Does anyone have an engine hoist I could borrow?

    Thanks!!

    Haha!
    It is bright orange and right next to the garage door!
    It is one of the things I push out into the driveway because it has wheels when I need space in there.

    What city are you going to pull the engine because I can deliver it locally.
    You can PM if needed.
