Leading the league and pulling away in tranny yanks now, I am happy to
report the Pig is back and running like a champ.
For review, the throw out bearing had melted which lead to a repair with a
metal TO bearing replacement.
Unfortunately a ball bearing or debris from the TO bearing blowing up was
left behind and subsequently sheared off the G4 timing pointed on the
flywheel.  Car no runny without this a suffered an immediate electrical
death and a visit from the AAA man.
Unfortunately no. II (or is it three?) all the action back there caused the
T coolant connection back there to fail,  d'oh!
Fortunately I had this part "in stock" and more importantly, found it after
only a 10 minute search.
I'll be restocking this T connecting tube ( 4A0819497) with my next stealer
order order along with the other back of the engine coolant connector
(034121143E.)  Might as well store these in vehicle along with the CPS, and
POS for when they fail whilst in PA.
I still have a "clunk" in the rear which may be a loose strut mount, but
thats for another day.
Drive line is very sound now and should get more so if I can get to
installing the new motor mounts some time soon.
and that's the way it is.
