TDI into Rabbit and Mk2
« on: October 06, 2016, 07:24:32 am »
What does it take to bolt an ALH into a Rabbit. What do they do about motor mounts? How about into a Mk2 Golf. I had this 5 speed conversion fall into my lap and I have a couple of ALHs floating around here and am trying to decide what I what to do with them. I am also long on Rabbits and and pickups. IO also have a couple of td IPs as well, so an mTDI may be in my future.

When I went to hook up the exhaust on my Low Buck GTD ('86) after desliming and resealing the pump, I noticed that the toilet bowl on the gas exhaust was about an inch forward of where it needed to be to seat on the cast iron down pipe. Is this normal? I expected that the toilet bowl would be in the same spot for gas and AAZ.

First paragraph.....can not help.
2nd paragraph: toilet location does change. I hate when that happens as I end up going on the floor.
Time to pardon the true white hats.
The prosecution of the trash is to begin.

Previous driver reversed and ran the exhaust against a big rock? That can bend the downpipe so that the bog bowl isn't where it was?

Also have a grenaded Mk2 GTD, so will be watching!
