I'll let you know if I make another one.
Sounds like a plan, keep up the good work and us updated!

The ALH water neck on the back of the head has three glow plugs I won't be needing and the hose is much larger than the Suzuki's 1/2 heater hose so time to make a new one.

I made the brackets to mount the VW coolant bottle and fuel filter then made a bracket to hold the braided stainless steel fuel lines. I tig welded the fuel line bracket together and it was the first thing I've actually tig welded.
