Mark Shepherd and all :      I took it that the gist of Lorens threads were that
diesels are fitted really tight compared to gassers. And he did say by memory.
Now 0ne thou is a tighty ----but my memory say 2 thou on V8 diesels.

And it is very difficult to get a gasser machineshop to fit pistons that close.

I am going to ask James Hansen what he fits racing engine pistons to ? ---my
guess would be 10 thou. (or more ?)

In the bad old day's ---shit we had piston slap when cold.

Hell I am going to ask VW  and find out.


PS :  If Pat Dolan is handy he could tell us. Surely he knows how to phone
VW ---mechanicks support line.   Mark Shepherd try and bullshit your way
in to the UK ---VW line for mechanics .(Stealers).
