The mount under consideration came from rockauto and it is the exact thing we have been discussing. Problem solved. For the moment anyway.

Where things stand now:
- Transmission out and rebuilt ...

Welllll! I tried my own solution to that one valve I could not figure out how to release. Leave it in!

I realized I never posted the solution to this. I tried out the hand reamer and it worked, up to a point. The hole for the screw in the middle has a different style than the old part. I don't want ...

When I have heads rebuilt to stick on it I will be saving up for the camshaft that Ray recommended. Every single one of my lifters are concave now so I imagine when I go in I will also find a junk ca ...

Nice find. I really like the wagons but in the end I couldn't resist the fastback look of the four door sedan.

Don't forget to get a seal kit for the 003 automatic transmission. The seals betwe ...

I'm intrigued. I just replaced an outer tie-rod end on our Rabbit and paid 90 for an alignment. Would have loved to do my own!

My original transmission filter screen was shredded, so I added that to the rebuild parts list. ...
