Hi mate
2 things , the brake pressure compensator was 6 months old if that when it was on that scrapped car and that engine is the best G60 engine that ever lived, the valve stem seals were set with a vernier height gauge and theyre all within 0.01mm. The valves were lapped and I can guarantee that the engine will ast you for years to come. Now get back to building it. thx

Hi Manny Smile how's things? Cheers for the info, I remember you saying about the brake pressure regulator back when I bought it .. can't believe how long ago that was now! Engine sure is a gd un Very Happy Should be even better with the lightened and balanced bottom end - adding a 4branch and a few other goodies so should be even quicker too, although it will be dragging around a car with a big arse now Laughing

Was thinking about the engine and decided I wasn't happy with the unpainted parts on the bottom around the sump, so sorted that out, then I got all the ancillaries out, which I have dropped off at the powder coaters and will be picking up in a couple of days Smile

Last (I hope) bit of paint on the block;

Box of grubby bits soon to be looking fresh ^_^

Next on the agenda is to get underneath it (tomorrow I hope) and get rid of the last of the rust, then weld the bay and drop it off for a coat of paint. Really need to crack on and get it done, taking a lot longer than planned.

My great friends in the derbyshire region need to get off their asses then Razz

Made a little progress, decided that I need to remove the wings to get the 'bay painted properly (no gloating please dirtydubber) so got them off and had a look underneath too.

Very little rust in the usual rust trap on the o/s so that's good;

Cheers mate, it's proving a little hard to get motivated to weld all the holes in the engine bay up, especially when it's bloody freezing in the garage, but I keep on dreaming about driving it so will get there in the end! Managed to blag tomorrow off work so hopefully get quite a bit done this weekend Smile

In the meantime I've had the inlet manifold and the water pump vapour blasted and they've come up brilliantly. If anyone in the West Yorkshire area wants anything doing the company is 'Vapour Blast' in Golcar near Huddersfield - 01484 646971. Highly recommend them.

Paul, '59 beetle sounds nice, I was much more an aircooled guy myself till I discovered a little thing called a G-lader Laughing

The cost of the two bits above was 30. My mate just had his 16v head done and that cost 40 - come up amazingly well though.

Progress on the 'bay;

Top work mate seeing the work on the battery tray reminds me in need to get mine cleaned up and painted, do you need to laquer the parts after vapour blasting to keep the finish?

Cheers mate Smile You just cover the parts in wd40 and work it in with a rag to keep the finish, although I imagine if you laquer them they'll last even longer.

Just read my first post and noticed that I'd written this;

Simeon wrote:... the plan is .. to get a tidy shell and drop the engine in without getting anal about every inch of bodywork etc...

How things change eh Rolling Eyes Laughing

Anyway, some progress has been made, but as ever other things seem to take up lots of my 'working on Jetta' time so not as much has been done as I'd like.

Finished most of the welding so cracked on with grinding it back;
