You have the correct pin #'s for the reverse. The plug for the reverse switch is part #443-906-235 and the rubber boot for the plug is part #443-906-102D. The wires go into pin positions 2 and 3 on the reverse switch plug.A couple things to add:
Also took the time to figure out which pins in the autobox's range selector switch work the reverse lights: (pins 7&8 - the ones with the jumper)
Haven't actually hooked up the lamps yet, but at least I know where to run the wires.
I have the same Darkside clutch setup on my 6sp also, and have the same choppy takeup. I was hoping it would go away over time, but 10k later it is still the same.I have the Darkside clutch: http://www.darksidedevelopments.co....ssat-audi-a4-audi-a6-1-9-2-0-tdi-6-speed.html
The same one that Uberhare is going to install - Mine is a bit choppy on take-up. It likes more of a firm engagement, rather than trying to feather a soft take-up.
Well Commercial trucks are a whole different ball game, but in essence, the normal clutches used in trucks are smooth enough. The upgraded aftermarket clutches are obviously designed to hold more torque without slipping. As a result they tend to "grab and hold" a lot more during take up rather than "slide" into full contact, which when hauling is very helpful. So it sounds more or less what you are describing.Mine has about 5000km on it now, and It has settled down a fair bit.
It "likes" a more firm/quick engagement. Slower takeup requires more RPM to be smooth. If you release the pedal faster, then it doesn't shudder at all.
It doesn't like "feathering" as much as most clutches I have driven.
However, since it's more of a performance clutch rated to hold 370FtLbs, it's in line with other performance clutches I have felt.
I work with heavy trucks as part of my Job - not sure where your comment comes from? Aside from a more stiffly sprung pedal, truck clutches (Eaton Solos mostly) engage smooth enough.
Thanks for the crank measurements. Used it to decide if a stock pilot bearing would work for my 5-speed. I did a quick check to see if the 23mm was the same on my engine too (it was supposed to be and it was). In my case a stock bearing at full depth will give around 8.5 mm support of the input shaft. That's plenty for me.No reason why it shouldn't - but you would need to measure the ID (21mm on my BHW) of the hole in the crank, and the OD of the input shaft (15mm on my 01E) on your 5-speed. As it is, I plan to put a thin washer behind the top hat of my bushing for a total of 9.5 mm of shaft engagement - just shy of the 10mm the factory bearing provides.
If, for some reason your measurements are different, I think that simplybearings.uk makes oillite bushings in almost every size imaginable. If you don't see what you need, send them an email.
