      Yes there was oil in the engine but oil light and buzzer on, little to no oil pressure, Piston look fine so does rings and bore, damage was done to conrod bearings. Not sure what the make of pistons, I still want to remove the crank bearing and have a look at those. At work for another weeks I'll post finding in the new year.

      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

      Why not bore the AEB block out to 83mm? It would bring the displacement to 1.9 also, I believe.

      I've been debating that since the piston are in good shape and I've got another set of stock conrods. Need to contact JE for a set of piston rings.

      Pistons were notched after JE made them as they are an early set (no part number lasered etched on them skirt boss is one indication). I suggest that you consider (if you can afford it) getting a new set that will work with 144mm rods. The motor will rev smoother and if you bump the compression up to 9:1 (from 8:1), you will reduce the load on the supercharger and require less boost to make the same power. The motor will perform better off boost with the higher compression ratio. SNS in Georgia use to tune for this years ago and many of the G60 guys switched to the 144mm rod and piston combo around 2001-2002.

      Thanks for the info, I'm going to stick with the stock pistons with the 136mm rods for the 1.8L 8V G60 build, but will be going to the 9:1 pistons and 144mm rods in my second build 1.8L 20V G60.
      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

      1 x F-A-G 6003 2Z C3 Front Intermittent Shaft
      1 x F-A-G 6002C 2HRS C3 Rear Intermittent Shaft

      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.

      Bought an AWU intake manifold for my AEB 1.8L G60 20V build, it came with phenolic transition gasket but was missing the small port metal gasket is #058129717D the correct part number?

      Stripped:

      Not pleased on how it turned out, stripping it and starting over minus the wrinkle paint.

      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.

      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.

      Ordered parts today so I can start putting the internals back together, new OEM conrod bolts, new oil pump, new water pump, oil pump priming tool, clutch alignment tool, rebuild kit for the 02J shifter plus a bunch of misc. parts.

      Yeah you bet Santa got year round gig Shawn when you installed your short shifter, you used the Polo shifter housing correct? Did you get the Diesel Geek short shifter or did you upgrade the bushing on the tranny end and cable support bracket (3 of them)? I've got the MK4 setup (just like new) which calls for cutting the tunnel for it to fit and I'm ok with that (can't bring myself to spend $145.00 (close to $200.00 CND) for just the Polo housing from ECS) In one of the 02A to 02J thread the op hacked up the tunnel when he cut it, used a bunch of washer as spacer on the support bolts for the front of the shifter assembly and elongated the rear mounting hole. I know that once everything back together no one going to see it but I just can't bring myself to doing something like that (little OCD I guess). Think I've got it figured out going to use 16g. sheet metal for the rear, weld two bolts to so it line up with the rear MK4 holes then weld the 16g piece to the tunnel bracket, for the front I'm going to use aluminum square stock, drill and tap to utilize the existing bolt in the MK4 shifter assembly then drill a new hole in the tunnel (front) mark the square stock, drill and tap. Going to make a cardboard template of the MK4 outline to make the tunnel prior to cutting. I know the Polo shifter a a direct bolt on and this is more work but I'm ok with this. Going post photo when I install it.

      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.
