Do I have to yank the valve cover gasket off and poil some oil down into the
lifters or will a little cranking lube everything up in short order?

Sold my 88 Jetta last year for peanuts ($300) and really shudda kept it.
699 Rte 616 Keswick Ridge
E6L 1T1

Mike and All :    IMHO   the Rabbits and Jettas are well worth putting some
in to now.     Rust repair panels are made in Denmark and the rest ?  ---It
close to becoming a GOOD  investment. ------ Mike  300 dollars Canadian
? ----
you gave it away.

How much to invest in a Rabbit ?   15 000 US dollars would be my answer.
That would get you a top of the line "Creampuff"  ------that will drive
circles around a Prius.
for 22 000 dollars.    A new Golf diesel here is about  30 000 dollars

Love those OLD Rabbits ----yes siree.

I have said it many times --- IMHO   The diesel Rabbits are the finest all
piece of transportation ever made by man.(for a DIY)    A four door Rabbit
will get 4 big people
to the Opera in style.   All you have to do is go around and make sure those
gowns are not dragging in the slush.

I like the looks of the little beauties---  and I have a Royal Brougham Olds
V8 sitting here.
Yeah a diesel too--- well sort of.
