    Feeling a bit nostalgic

    Yeah looking for some storage / workshop, but problem is cost really as it makes a hobby really expensive when you're forking out each month just to put a roof over the cars. Best bet is to buy another house with a big garage and then rent the house out I guess, but for some reason developers over the years have focused more on the living space than the size of the garage !? 😂 I guess I should have a poke about on facebook if I'm needing to sell lots of bits, but always found it lacks any sort of organisation and 'threading' like you get on the forums, so unless someone sees your item in the first 5 minutes before it disappears off the bottom of the page I'm not sure how people are supposed to find stuff.

    Feeling a bit nostalgic

    Not been on here in ages, so I'm as guilty as anyone, but not being a facebook / instagram user I find the slow death of the forums such a shame [yes I know this has been covered many times before] Scrolling down the homepage on here and seeing pretty much nothing dated after 2017/18 genuinely made me feel sad Was just going through some of the how-to's too and most of the links / pics are dead, which is a massive shame as I learnt so much from forums over the years, there was such a wealth of knowledge that just seems to have been lost. I sell quite a few bits on ebay and the dumb ass questions I get asked everyday seems to prove that all anyone does these days is look at pretty pictures - I had a Jetta bench up for sale and got loads of questions; Yoof of today - "Will this straight fit in a Golf?" [no preamble, that would be too much strain on the fingers clearly] Me - "Hi, no it is a Jetta bench so would require mods to fit in a Golf, Cheers" Yoof - "Oh right, what would I have to do?" Seriously?! Firstly, who the hell has a Mk2 Golf and doesn't know the difference between Golfs and Jettas and secondly, why are people incapable of doing any research themselves!? Oh and yes I know I'm insulting everyone and their dog by writing 'Yoof', but it seems easier to presume these idle people with inane questions are young, while in actual fact Golfs are bloody expensive these days so they're probably not young at all... Besides this isn't posted on facebook so no-one will read it anyway 😆 Anyway, bit of an old man rant for someone in their 30s, but I'm losing my workshop in the coming months and have neither the money nor the time to carry on with old Vdubs really so feeling a bit miserable. Hopefully this self driving / electric car 'revolution' will die a death and this isn't the last few years of driving classic cars, otherwise I'm gonna be really pissed off when I'm in my 40s 😆 Big thanks to whoever keeps this site running by the way 👍

    What radiator fits golf g60 intercooler?

    How did you get on with the recore mate?

    What radiator fits golf g60 intercooler?

    Yeah, so same issue old issue with the 580mm rad. Easiest solution would be to send the Golf intercooler back and get the Rallye one, chop your towing eye out and bang a 630mm rad in :p Re core could be best alternative, don't think it costs that much.

    What radiator fits golf g60 intercooler?

    I think Wagner only do the Rallye intercooler don't they which they call a 'Golf G60 Intercooler'? You can use a 630mm rad with a Rallye 'cooler and a 580mm rad with the Golf 'cooler. If you measure up you will see which one fits. The 630mm rad is readily available for about 90quid I think, but when I was looking (admittedly a couple of years ago) the 580mm was very difficult to find and much more expensive. I'm going to be fitting my Wagner 'cooler into my Corrado soon (with a 630mm rad), so would be interested in some pics of yours if you have any? I think you have to chop out the towing eye and mount to make it fit? Cheers

    Main bearing on charger, advice please

    I think the easiest way to do it is to put it in the oven for 20 mins, think I put mine on gas mark 3 .. bearings just fell out
  12. Located in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. 0773068206two I would prefer cash on collection for this please, but I could wrap it if you arrange a courier. Had no intention of selling this on, but I've owned it quite a while now and it's not looking like it will make it onto an engine any time soon... So, here we have my BBM Lysholm charger (gen 1) that has not been run since I had it rebuilt by BBM (see pic of receipt). Rebuild was for peace of mind (and I was obviously feeling flush at the time). The previous owner ran this on a 16v so it has a plate to blank off the 16v breather and an oil return pipe screwed in. I also sourced a vacuum operated bypass valve which is included. Basically, what you see is what you get :) The silencer kit is all there, apart from gaskets and a few silicone joiners. This is the Corrado kit, so there are two pipes to go to the standard wing mounted intercooler, but easily adapted for a front mount. Also included is a mount for the rear of the charger (the black painted bracket) which will overcome the risk of the charger flexing/twisting when using the silencer kit. I do not want to split the charger from the silencer kit. Price is £1650ovno Any questions please ask.

    G60 compression test

    Is the throttle body operating correctly? i.e: all the butterflys are turning fully.   You still have the ISV fitted?   What chip are you using? Those slight mods will mean you will need a modified one.

    G60 compression test

    Low compression on one cylinder isn't going to directly affect the boost produced by the charger as that is driven by the belt. Remember you will be measuring the pressure in the manifold / boost pipes which is affected by the flow of the engine; what is the engine spec?
  15. Located near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire Mileage: 56,500 (will go up slightly as still in use) Mot expiry: 24/02/2016 Previous owners: 3 Transmission: 5 speed manual Power: 175bhp Fuel: Petrol Colour: Red Very low mileage, pretty full service history, drives very well, smooth through the gears. Recent work includes: Front discs and pads - 07/07/15 Rear pads - 07/07/15 New Varta battery last week (4 year guarantee – receipt included) Rear diff oil - 24/10/15 Front drop-links - 24/10/15 Rear drop-links - 23/11/15 Last serviced in February 2015 at 52,281 miles, MOT’d until 24/02/2016 (one advisory for front discs - replaced 07/07/15). Has very low miles since last service/mot due to previous owner being ill this year and spending a lot of time in hospital. Cambelt last replaced at 31,489 miles. Has full black leather interior, all in very good condition, front seats are heated too. Also; Central locking, two keys, electric windows, electric mirrors, large electric sunroof, front fogs, cruise control, load bed cover and plastic boot protector. Exterior is generally in very good condition, no noticeable dents, but it does have a few stone chips and scratches commensurate with age. Has 16" factory alloys and does not have a towbar fitted. I have only owned the car for a couple of months, I bought it off family friends who had a death in the family and needed it off the drive quick, as I thought it would be a good replacement for my wife’s golf, but she doesn’t like driving it (too big apparently) so I have decided to keep her Mk3 Golf and move this along. Bad bits; tyres are getting quite low and back box is a little rusty. Overall a great four wheel drive motor, very low mileage, smooth, powerful and comfortable. Asking £3,195 Of course I am open to sensible negotiations when viewing the car, I don't have a 'best cash price', as I will only accept cash and I have already stated my price :) Px: Would consider a Corrado or 3dr Mk2 or Mk2 G60, but would need to be tidy.
