Brmm! BRMMM!!

I'm still unsubscribed, and will be for two or three weeks - but I
thought I'd like to let the list know that F600 JVJ is back in full
working order.

The rebuild took three man days - one day of myself and Roger, and
one of just me.  Audi's exchange head is still clicking a bit, but I
only idled the engine for a few minutes - it will probably settle
in later.  It started first time, though I had already run the pump
to pressurise the fuel system.

I don't know how many times I've cursed the ur-quattro's layout.

One point on exchange heads - it was _so_ complete (all studs, all
valvegear) that I completely missed the absence of the screw-in plug
on the back of the head.  I wound the temperature sensors out of the
old head and wound them into the new one without noticing that the
vast hole next to the one on the back of the head was unfurnished.

And a curse on the stupid Kraut who designed that plug - a 6mm Allen
socket is not enough to wind out a steel 14mm thread that's been sitting
in alloy for ten years.  I had to use some _serious_ persuasion.
