wilbo-bilbo posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHi everyone, Pleased to be here and this is my first post, so "hi"! I joined today as I bought a 91 Polo Breadvan with some issues. It was very inexpensive (£80 with 6 months MOT) and I fancy trying to do the work myself. I also own a 73 Beetle that is on the road (tucked up in the garage for winter) and also a rolling resto. I wondered if anyone has a step-by-step guide to changing the head gasket on a AAV engine? Or can point me in the right direction for one? (no Haynes manual advice please) Pictures would be really helpful too. Thanks very much in advance and I look forward to getting to know you all. Will
noncompusmentis posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHi all, I need some help! I've got a 6n2 GTI that needs an top end rebuild as the engine was tapping. I thought it may be a sticky hydraulic tappet, so I shoved some engine flush through as a kill or cure solution. Typically, as my luck would have it... I killed it! The valve stem oil seals are shot and the tapping has stayed. So I need to have a bit of a rebuild. The last engine that I rebuilt was an aircooled Beetle engine, so I need a bit of advice on what parts I should buy in readiness for the engine removal, strip down, rebuild and re-installation. I'm thinking I need: Valve stem oil seals x 16 Head gasket Exhaust gasket 'Instant' gasket for rocker cover and sump Cambelt kit... might as well while it's in bits! I was hoping to find some miracle kit on GSF or similar like I used to buy for my aircooled engines, but it's not that simple! Can I ask for your help to make sure I get all I need? Any suggestions welcome. Cheers Andy
