Hi jake,got another crank last week off VWJim (thanks again jim),got new barrels/pistons,mains,fuel pump,oil pump,need a decent conrod tho,jims on the case for that aswell :D Borrowed a drawer off my mate the weekend & my dad has stripped the cranks. I forgot to order new big ends :oops: so waiting on those. Then my dad when he's up for it will start the rebuild for me. He's doing bits when he feels like it,he's retired now but still enjoys tinkering with the aircooled stuff.Told him no hurry,im aiming for vik farm dude. :wink:
