      Never Ever Worked

      Do yourself a favor, test it. Use an ohm meter to test the wires. Swap wires if needed. Swap plugs if needed. If you do not have a OBD2 scanner, get one. Ross Tech is a good...

      As a mechanic that has replaced a few suspension parts in the past, the most beneficial thing about an aluminum part vs steel, is the cost for scrap aluminum is more than steel. $$$$$

      Time is marching on as well as technology. As it does, gas engines are sounding like diesels and diesels are getting a lot quieter. They're almost the same anymore.

      Opinion? Here's mine. If it is OK for the stock 4 cylinder, I suspect it will be OK for the R32. I have no idea how the coolant flow is thru that head but usually there is a upper radiator hose at...

      If it's grinding only in 4th, you got problems that cannot be fixed externally. Assuming it's the original transmission, you cannot complain for something that is almost 40 years old.

      I do not see that you would ever need that much fuel flow. The more you pump the more the fuel is being heated. Why pump more than you need?

      Mk1 in-tank fuel pumps are $60. If that is too...

      The rotor does not look good in the picture. It appears to be burned from the center to the tip. Your eyes would be better than that the picture to determine that. The center of the rotor to the tip...

      Brakes are a very easy/reliable system. It can be frustrating but how about listing what you have done and the exact symptoms you have. The better you explain it, the better the answer will be.

      Yes, any good rebuilder will have a cross hatch. Measure the bore. If it's factory stock, then it's probably NOT been rebuilt.

      If the oil services have been good, there can be cross hatch for well...

      From my understanding, the head flows are about the same. It would come down to other restrictions in the intake and exhaust.
