Shawn Wright : you are in a good situation ---thanks to being able to post pictures like you do. A drillmotor and those old valves can be cleaned in no time. ----Then run them real slow and se if they are straigt.. Then post pictures and we can all get in on the action. As usual on mechanical engine stuff I agree with Loren and James Hansen. BUT do remember all the flyboys out there. When it comes to sodium valves ? ---they got loads of information. I have missgivings with your end goal ----- that is a lot of weight to move with so little an engine. If I did it I would go for the 4 speed tranney from a 1980 four door Rabbit. a GC tranney. . Remember VW diesels are HIGH speed diesels. ---- I do have experience with sodium cooled valves ---and after 1000 hours of hard service ? in aircooled AC engine ? ---they look like NEW. About the HONING job ? looks great ------ there are two types of honing jobs. Deglazing and fitting pistons after a rebore. Do not confuse the two. My sin as far as honing goes ? I put on too fine of a finish. By luck they all worked out. Talking about those bearings on the intermediate shaft ? ---I do NOT like the looks. Check things out real good to find out what went wrong. Green stripe ? ---that one still gives me troubles. --------- somebody knows what it indicates ? --right ?. I think Chuck Carnohan has a GEENIE ? if you both post the serial numbers ---maybe just maybe I can solve the mystery. Germans are notorious for keeping track of parts ----- The way I remember it , the exhaust valve in the TDs are a special alloy and coated. NOT like NA valves. So at least get the turbo valves --non sodium. Hagar.
