Between cleaning up tree limbs from the hurricane and other projects, I haven't done much on the Golf. However, I did find time to swap out the crankshaft damper. I decided to go with a Fluidampr.





It sure looks nice. The car seems smoother and also seems to accelerate a little quicker, but maybe it's just wishful thinking. Honestly though, it does seem to be smoother and maybe even shift a bit easier. I haven't seen any downside (other than my wallet ).

I'm really enjoying the car. I have the headliner and interior done from the rear seat back. Still working on some other stuff, it's slow but getting there.

The side to side shifter gate has been stiff since I put it in, especially between the 3-4 and 5-6 gate. I pulled the shifter out (which requires removal of the downpipe and heat shields). I found the inner cable had a small kink at the transmission end. I replaced the cable with another one I had and replaced the shifter bushings while I had it apart. It had a small vibration at idle, but dosen't vibrate at all now, I'm guessing the kinked cable was transmitting the vibration from the outer cable to the inner? Anyway, it works great now.

I've kinked those cable sheaths in the past because of hasty carelessness. Learned my lesson. Respect the cable.
