My plan is to leave the 91 Jetta with the 1.6 TDI intact and fix it up to
put on the road as inexpensive transportation!  The NA 1.5 has now been
installed in the power plant and I am just dealing now with a flywheel
incompatibility issue.  The 1984, 1.6 NA flywheel and flexplate are
different to the 1980, 1,5.
