When I removed the oversize pistons from the PG block thought that the bottom skirt had came in contact with the oil squirters but looking closer looks like they may have been ground at the JE before delivery. They are all ground the same and seems at the same angle as well

Started cleaning the internals to be swapped into the brand new AEB block. Soak the pistons in Berryman Carburetor & Parts Cleaner for 24hrs carbon wiped right off, re-soaked for another 24hrs, all piston ring grooves are squeaky clean. Top of the piston not perfect but lot better then what I started with

Clean carbon on the other three pistons, took the G-lader apart no play in the bearings,cleaning the internal surfaces and inspected for damage and hairline cracks, all good

Found a MK1 TT AWU intake manifold for the 1.8L 20V G60 build. Guy also had the phenolic intake manifold transition spacer.
Will need blasting and repaint:
Next item to find is a OBD-1 ABA throttle body.

Found a 02A to 02J conversion kit from a Vortex member. Bit of clean and lubrication and should be good to go. Perfect time to do this while the engine out.
Got the timing pulley cleaned and painted, just need to do the same to the intermittent shaft pulley.

Buddy of mine offered me a set of 15" x 6" Sebrings at my favourite price (free LOL), I just got to get them from Alberta to Ontario though.
Looking to do a custom lip to them:
Also going to need center caps.

I lucked out on the wheel getting them for free from a co-worker , now I've got another co-worker driving back to NFLD next month and is going to drop them off for me
Picked up a 02A tranny from a 16V Passat, has a better gear ratio then the stock tranny. Bonus got a newer starter (which I needed) and another clutch with on 6,000 KM on it. The drawback was it was an 16hrs road trip to go get it in Windsor, Ontario.

Pick up the Neuspeed Strut Bar from Vortex member VRT. These were made for the VR6 but it will clear the G60 intake manifold with a bit of tweaking.

I don't have the short shifter. I have the whole 02m 6 Speed trans, shifter etc with the stock shift arms and weight on trans. I did, however, buy the Polo housing for the 02m shifter (same as 02j for all intensive purposes). Before I found the Polo box, there have been many people that modified the 02j/02m housing and either made a Bezel, used washers etc. As l,ong as you create a nice fit, so Ex heat doesn't travel up your good.
ECS is expensive on that. For the 3 pieces I think I paid about 100 shipped from UK. For me it was a no brainer, but had a friend there hook me up.

Removed the intermittent shaft pulley from the PG block to test fit onto the AEB block, turn out that the PG pulley needs machining to add a keyway will since the intermittent of the AEB pulley has the keyway built into the pulley. All part of a hybrid build.
PG on the left - AEB on the right

AEB intermittent shaft keyway is cut right thru the shaft.
