Due to a stroke of fortuitous events and some serendipity (which I will describe later) I am going to pass on a project that someone needs to save. It is an extended pickup in Kentucky. I was going to get it for my next project but decided to pass for reasons to be listed below. Anyway, they guy want about $1000 for it and will include seats and new jetta style dash. I have sent an email to him letting him know that I have passed on the information to others who might be interested. I can only hope one of you will decide that this is the project you just can't live without. Now for the reasons that I have decided to pass on this project. I went to the only junk yard still around here that has older VWs to scrounge some parts from an 86 Turbo jetta. The engine is gone but there were still a number of parts that I picked up and will probably offer to the lists here shortly. Anyway, as I was paying, the guy asks what kind of VWs I work on. So I tell him all kinds but that I was particularly partial to diesels. He offhandly remarks that they had just gotten a diesel passat in and the engine was a great runner. they had pulled the engine and the transmission but has left everything else in the car. Well, I have just spent the last 3 days doing searches on the internet for 96-97 Passat TDI engines and 97-98 Jetta TDI engines and had been getting many different responses, most of them negative or EXTREMELY expensive. What luck to arrive on the day AFTER they pulled this particular engine. Anyway, some dickering and then 2 hours of pulling the ECU, wiring harness, all of the boost valves and the MAF (I will pull the pedal cluster on Monday) and the paying of about $1800 I have my TDI engine. Now to figure out exactly how to massage it into the pickup!!!!!!! :^) Anyone with experience putting a TDI in an A1, I would love to here from you. I need to figure out all of the wiring etc so a little help will go along way. More later as I get the motor home and get everything together. Now because of this, I have a few things lying around that I will no longer need. Especially the head I just had completely rebuilt. I someone wants the head, gaskets and the head gasket (3 notch) and are willing to pay what it cost me to have rebuilt ($473) I will pay for the shipping. Eventually the turbo diesel engine in the truck will also be available and with only 18000 miles since rebuild, it should really be a prize for someone.
