If Hagar made a 1.5 sound like fun ---it was completely intentional.
Long time before I met you guys ---I got a lot of bad advise. --- Like take
the 1.5 out and put a 1.6 in.. Was told that parts could no longer
be had for the 1.5.
So when I got the 1982 Rabbit with a 1.6 ----- I lopped the 1.5 out in the
back with about 50 other rusting engines.
Wound op going out there later and retrieve the thing. We can keep the 1.5
going ---DIY style. It is a perfect engine for a Welder,Genset,Boat, etc.
Then the fun part ---a test engine on a stand. To test all kinds of things----
like Lorens Toluene Fuel --- or to see what happens when pump is too far advanced
or too far retarded --------use it for testing spare pumps and injectors----- a real
TOY. ----- how many 1.5 have I got ? don't really know but maybe 4.5.
I can see two of em from whence I sit ---- one ready to run and one close.
They sit on plywood on the ground.
Not to forget it as a spare for your Jetta --it will get you to the Saltmines.
Do not put milk in your Pepsi .
PS: the 1.5 solution. The best way I know of to tell a 1.6 is to measure stroke.
