Is there anyone who has experience with camper trailers or RVs? I happened to take a caravan for a while but to hit the road I need to get a water pump for a waste outlet. I found reviews on some of them here reviewseye.com. What are your thoughts on them?

Anyone know whose it is? Didn't know of one in the area on the forums at least.

That was probably me. I have the only one I know of in the area and I drive through St. Anthony area a lot.

neato bandito

if you see a clapped out dark blue mk4 golf on big tires with the (loud) exhaust out the left front fender, I'm embarrassed to admit that's me

Always thought an allroad would be a neat swap, but with a 100hp or so mechanically governed motor, so the gas motor gearing would be excusable and pretty much the whole harness could be ignored.

I'm selling a set of 5x100 wheels and tires if anyone is interested. Don't really need two sets now that my TDI has been relegated to backup duty. The tires aren't all seasons, but are good in the rain.

Hey everybody Saint Cloud here. Just a quick question about what you all are running in your 6sp manuals? I just bought a 2012 JSW and getting the maintenance caught up. Looking for something that will still move this winter. Thanks.

honda's mtf is very nicely water-thin, it's what I run in my MQ500, changed out at about 40k or so of very severe service, and parked outside in the cold

otherwise, I hear the most recent VW MTFs (G71?) are also pretty thin viscosity

Factory fluid is best for a factory setup. I ran Redline Lightweight Shockproof(Smurf Blood) when I was running a single mass flywheel, ran great, I really liked it.

Sighting: Princeton MN, an mk4 Jetta with a steel home made bumper and a winch on the front. 2.5" or 3" straight pipe with a big tip. black or dark blue in color I believe...
anyone seen this TDI? It sounded pretty good! and had character.
I'm just curious if it was anyone on the forum.
Thanks.

600 dollar manual/alh jetta sedan
electrical issues, but... what's new it's a VW

Just inundated with partouts lately (just got two alh/auto beetles for $500, and had nowhere to park them), so figured I'd toss my findings up here for someone else to plunder
ETA: which is to say, not mine (though I'd pick it up in a heartbeat if I had some dirt left to park it on)

Bob Cook at Midwest Motorworks has a very nice 2002 Jetta TDI GLS wagon, 5-speed manual, reflex silver, 343k miles, Florida car with zero rust. It has a new TB, newish turbo, new clutch, and Malone 1.5. The interior is extremely clean with the seats showing almost no wear. There is a crease on the LF fender but it might just pop out without needing replacement. The right taillight lens needs replacement.

I already have two Golf TDIs and don't have room for another car. But I thought maybe a family member might be interested and I was ready to buy it on Friday. But my family member said she really wants and needs a pickup at this time. So I reluctantly told Bob that I couldn't buy it.

Bob is waiting for the buyer to specify which shocks, struts, and tires he wants. It will also get control arm bushings at the same time as the other suspension parts. Expect the final price to be in the range of $4500 or a little more, depending on the cost of the additional parts.

Bob hasn't advertised yet, but it should sell fast when he does. So if you want a nice rust-free wagon with the ALH engine, you should call early Monday morning or it will be gone.

I have a bunch of take off parts from my 09 JSW, does anyone local need anything?
3" exhaust
rear sway bar(needs some parts)
S3 FMIC
IC piping
possibly more. hoping someone wants them locally so I don't have to ship stuff, otherwise I'd post in the classifieds.
