Looks like GG's going to pick it up.
IIRC shift tower just more or less pulls out without major disassembly, why not grab one from the junkyard from a gas motor trans and jam it into your diesel trans?

Anyone got a junk automatic they'd give away?
I'd like to look into building one up with a full manual valve body.

If the tower is actually shot that is what I will do, but I fear that the trans is bad - possible shift fork. Tower rebuild stuff got here today.

Worst case ontario, I pull the trans from my mk2 and put that in the daily while I figure out a solution. The gasser trans isn't that different in gear ratios, but it is in final drive. With the amount of gas transmissions I can get for $100 at the junkyard, I would probably go that route for the mk2 anyways.

low ratio final drive is the hot rod thing to do anyways.

My idea of an 02j would start with a 1.8t trans for the close ratios and high first, then TDI fifth and final.

That was my idea for the mk2 if it comes to that. I'd rather not have to but you know how it goes...

I have a 1.8t 02j if anyone wants to go that route.

violentaesthete - Did you just post on the eurowerks FB group about your broken shifter? I have a complete 99.5 shifter box you can have if that helps.

[486] - I have a dead 01m you can have. I'd be happy to bring it along when we meet up.

Cool beans.

Been wanting to tinker with one, as nobody seems to.
Got a c4 in my go-fast foxbody and no boost lag after shifts is really nice.

I actually did, also in TCEuros. I am buying a mk3 tdi o2A and flywheel (single mass!!!!) for cheap and will probably use the o2j out of my mk2 for the wagon, and throw the o2a in the mk2. That is unless I drill and tap the o2a for a dogbone mount, then its getting put in the wagon as it has a lower final drive.

My trans is junk - shift tower bearing looked brand new, but I pulled bits out of the bottom of the trans. Still dailying it, threw some syncromesh in it to help with the hard 2nd gear shift. I am 90% sure its the 1-2 hub at this point as it occasionally pops out of 1st and the noise that I thought was dual mass noise seems to be actually 1st gear rubbing the case. The fluid looked like kesha puke.

Also, after looking at the bentley, it appears the diesels have a quick 1-3 and then overdrive 4 and 5 from the factory. No need to play tranny whisperer.

For the diesel junkies out there, I just finished up a duramax suburban swap. Posted the build on DieselPlace:

Before I hit the phones tomorrow, does anyone have a braided turbo feed line laying around that'll work on an ALH? Also may be looking for a 5 speed manual trans. bearings are going on my 03. Trying to button this thing up to sell. Thanks.

Default Craigslist TDI purchase

Hello Minnesota TDI club members. I am a long term owner of 2004 Jettas with the BEW engine. I have entered in a verbal agreement to purchase this Jetta from your local craigslist. Unfortunately I am about 4 hours drive from him. I am very familiar with everything to look for as far as maintenance and have had most of my questions answered to my satisfaction from the seller. Fenders, and rockers were replaced before he bought it under the VW rust warranty, timing belt was done at 100,000 miles, correct oil used. He sent me a video of it starting along with many other high quality photos from different angles and they all look nice.
It's a long shot but I'm wondering if anybody on here has looked at this car or seen it and knows any more just to double check before I make the drive.
https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/r...386904390.html
thanks in advance

The fact that the steering wheel is so far off from the wheel position disturbs me.

Sam - Good observation. I asked about the steering wheel. When I asked about that he quickly sent me a photo and a video that shows it straight when the wheel is straight. So I'm not sure what was up in that photo. As well as 3 videos if it running and it sounds just like my other BEW's

I guess the only other things I would wonder about, window regulators and door microswitches.

I do also note that the lower driver's side grill is missing, but we are talking about a 13 year old car.
