Another bear in the road to shoot.
damn I hate fairies, when do I get to the happily everafter part ? :wtf


After I found out the motorsupport rubber is broken I simply thought to re-use the one from to old engine.
but this is not a direct fitment , also I found out there is a scary hole in my new engineblock.
also alternator fitment was a :help as they are different from the 2 engines.

Meantime lots happened, forgot updates :pale

latest news is fitment of the Turbo and its oillines.

Engine is mounted and gearbox attached, new wiring harness is made and connected.
got some great tips from other Callaway VW owners.

But were are not there yet so I need to find some more time in my busy life to get it finished.

Update,

Replacing original fuel pump with a CIS version as this system works with higher pressure instead low pressure injectors.

wire harness from donor car was , as you can guess fkd up --that why its called a fairy tale-- again dissapointment.
I kissed that dead chassis many times but it did not wake up :joker


Preparing a new connector cable and we should be able to finish installation next weekend.
then only few steps away from testing pressures on the fuel system. :jsmile

Next time I know for sure I am picking the correct time period donor and base instead of upgrading and downgrading complete cars. :conf :pale
