    Hi mate, loving your work, just about to put the same 2.0L in my Mk1 Cab - really struggling with what cam belt cover to use. Are you running with one? if so PLEASE :blush: can i have the part numbers for the top and bottom sections?

    Apparently i'll have to cut around the mk1 engine mount .......?:shrug:

    You could save me quite a few sleepless nights here...:sorry:

    Cheers.

    Very nice... ive nearly finished the same kind of rebuild on my white mk2 golf.
    With mine being a heavy mk2 ive fitted a 2.0 16v with webbers and nos,
    It was my first car over 17 years ago and i couldnt let it go,
