Hi Bud, long time no speak, hope all is good?
just wondering when you did your clutch did you go to a single mass fly wheel or stay with the dual?
Nice, that one was a octavia.
Dont reckon you will be having many clutch / gearbox problems now fella.
Going to start playing with mine soon, was chatting to Vagworld yesterday and he suggested a few things, think thats why his new thread was started. Do you know where he has had that pipe work from, looks the balls?
Yep i found an Octavia box with only 38 k on it
now fitted with G60 SM flywheel and paddle clutch rated at 480 ft lb
pedal is lighter than the standard clutch was too which is nice.
Also fitted a pair of 180 hp A3 driveshafts as the 90 -115 tdi ones can snap with high torque.
Did you have any joy on the gearbox??
The is a breakers in manchester who had a very solid skoda with a AHF engine in, only done 45k aswel, dont know hat he would want for the box or what the carriage would be.
Worth a try
Gutted was looking forward to 10 min skyve this afternoon looking at them
nah not taken any yet
Have you took any pic's with your new wheels on yet??
I have had my live data back from Damian, see my new thread - Limp mode, Charge Pressure Control, Positive deviation - Live data.
See what you think

Yeh just seen that about the tools, yeh buy he kit and give it me mate for the day

Buy a gates branded kit off ebay and get it fitted by specialist is my tip.
Its easy to do but you need £150 worth of tools to do it properly
so far i only bought camshaft locking tool
i used drill bits to lock the pump etc but was a nightmare
i was a motorbike mechanic for 15 years and navy marine engineer for 15 more
so its not that i dont know
