Mike, I know you will be glad to be back in action!  We should plan a drive in celebration!  What is your schedule like for the next few weeks?  Are there any good drives down in your part of the front range?

*********UPDATE*********
damn it i just realize i had a cracked hose...im scared to ask the price for the 8"long L-shaped molded hose part #058-103-213 hope it is under 30.00 (not likely)

off to source it and pick up my I-manifold... more progress later!
hope hamburger or audi has one.. anyone know where i can find this other than the above listed? if not
[F&F Ricey-jetta driving Geek] i'll have to overnight parts from ja-paan[/F&F geek]

Mike - Congratulations on getting her this far and starting.  I had a pretty loud sound from the back of the engine that turned out to be a sticky cam tensioner.  I hope you get fixed quickly.  Good Luck!

Good job Mike.  What's going on with the cooling?  I think I have a vavle clicking too, so I am waiting to hear what yours turns out to be.  I'll hold off with the drive until we know you are up for it.

the cooling has a pressure leak, so h20 boils cuz its not uinder pressure... it is either a cracked hose or a loose hose, easy fix once you find out which one.

my valves/lifter quiet down each time i drive/idle the car as they fill up with oil, it just takes some time.. it will be done today
