As many of you know I bought a Golf turbo from a friend and I have been playing with it trying to iron out a few niggles that it has. The major crux has been the clutch, it has been built using a cable which is not really the best way to do it so I have now set about converting it to hydraulic.
Oh before I show you the first stage of that have a giggle at this (for those in the know this will be funny)
Anyhow on with stage 1, remove the engine and gearbox...
So far the stuff binned in the name of reliability and weight saving..
Air Conditioning (doesnt belong on a MK2 Golf)
Cruise control (ditto, didnt work anyhow)
Washer bottle is off soon
Battery is now in the back of the car
Secondardy air injection (wasnt being used but still there)
About a dozen choc blocks out of the wiring loom (all soldered up nicely now)
More updates soon time sadly is limited to one evening a week at the moment until we are moved, but made a lot of progress just tonight. Once the engine is out the rest of the interior and dash needs to come out so I can fit the clutch pedal box.
