    1Z TDI motor+transmission for sale $2,000

    for the first time since May 1999 GeWilli does not own a TDI kind of feeling a bit odd... even my kids say "fill up the car with fuel" not 'gas' so there's that. Now, i still have all dem der tools for doin dem tbelts and turbos and nozzles and clutches and drive shafts and everything. Maybe...

    It will easily drive anywhere. Come get it. I was planning on driving it for another year (until inspection sticker expired) but opportunity to replace came up.

    1Z TDI motor+transmission for sale $2,000

    come on, no one wants to pick this up? how about $500? don't make me take it to the salvage yard. I've come to the realization that I don't have the time to part it out myself but need to get rid of it. Maybe YOU want a part it out project? Drive it this winter, part it out once the weather...

    nah, never, you'll never get rid of me, i may have to take a break for a bit but when my oldest kid takes over this wagon replacement, i'll be in the market for a set of oil burner powered wheels... But I just really hope my passion and everything i've put into this 1Z can find a good home.

    Taking it to scrap yard for disposal seems easier than dealing with CL (or has been) project cars not super in demand eh? makes sense, esp given the consistency of this body to rust out, too bad the motor is in so much better shape.

    1Z TDI motor+transmission for sale $2,000

    $1000? Heck I'd take just about any offer at this point. Anyone? I don't have space at the house to store it. It is a good example of bad rust but good motor. Still ideally suited as a rolling test bed for a donor project. But it does run and drives no problem (100 miles on Sunday, 90 miles...

    Piston hit Valve after hydraulic lifter went bad, now what??

    i may have a 1Z engine that may be up for grabs soon (currently in a '96 B4V) local to RI, i'd love to see the car be a donor for a project or a swap w/in TDI club family.

    Rear Passenger Side hard brake line?

    I like the idea of two pieces with the union. I have to get that bit of flex too. Bit of vise grip work and the thing is removed. Helped to cut the line right above each fitting. not looking forward to feeding it back through under the heat shield though.

    Rear Passenger Side hard brake line?

    So, I'm guessing that it is not a factory part? The line blew on mine just as it comes out from under the resonator heat shield. only a few blocks from home so I was able to get back no big deal. Lines going into the brake pressure regulator from the front are in good shape, but the ones from...

    Strut Tower Cover/Seatbelt guide removal ?

    Other than those stubborn seatbelt guides removing the trim wasn't nearly as bad as everyone has made it out to be all these years. A lot to do for two Strut tower bolts I suppose but all these years (12?) of hearing about the horrors of removing the trim to get to the strut towers... that was...
