Swapped the water pump and fitted new aux belt so thats stopped the squeeling.
Also given it fresh oil along with filter.

Still have a few probs though.

1, being it hates right handers even with a quarter tank showing. Is keeping the fuel tank topped up the only way to solve this?. Did'nt have this prob when i digified my first caddy scratch

2, have trouble trying to start her when warm. left her at steve's in the end.
Heard this prob before with k-jets believing its the 5th injector. i removed it to check(still warm), No fuel came out.

Fitted a 16v starter, bigger than the 8v mk1 gti 1 i had on. Took her out for a rip round the block to get her hot. Returned home, had tea(30 mins) then went out to restart. Alls good at the mo :music:

Still have the fuel starvation on right handers though and it reads nearly half a tank full now :i_dont_kn

Before i went out i decided to clean up my brake upgrades.
Audi 256mm calipers and carriers
16v servo

Thats random on the fuel starvation..... Love the cleaned up parts though.

Think you should keep the wood once its painted, would look real good imo. Proper old skool!

brakes and servo look awesome dude, must have been that starter sapping all the power like we said then.

Is the fuel starvation on ALL right handers or just hard turning?

well in my opinion i would get the ISV/Throttle position switch problem or lack of sorted out first then try and tackle the fueling problem.

Caddy tanks are gravity fed bud, no lift pumps.
Its going to be something stupid causing the problem, could be anything from a faulty tank to blocked breather pipes.

Went out for another spin in it earlier to convince steve(skinhead) to do a 16v in his Very Happy , Loving the speed of the thing affraid

She did refuse to restart on the button when i stopped by at tiz's place though, thankfully restarted after giving it a few pumps of the gas pedal.

Plucked up the courage and used my caddy for work today hoping for no probs.

Did my 28 mile commute fine although running lumpy(need to set up).

It also fired up first time for my journey home although it been sat for 8 hours chillin lol.

Trip home was real fun though Very Happy , gave it a little stick in places which made me realise why i started this project in the first place. to think i used to plod along with it being a 1.6 diesel before aswell Razz

Brakes are crap and oversteers big time but will get by for now.

Tidied up some more parts for my truck. Pair of seem welded wishbones with poly bushes, front ARB and lower strutbace.

Quick wire brush then some paint Smile

Lower strutbrace is stainless steel so that'll be ok.
They all fitted now.
Also fitted the 16v servo and 22mm M/C so i can now re-use the original dizzy cap.

Cheers tom.
I took her back off the road after the last meet so i could upgrade the brakes as it certainly needs them now. Been busy with other things so only getting bits done in between work and the bloody weather.

Its still on axle stands so i not attepted to sort the timing out yet now that i got the original dizzy cap back on. Will wait til its on all fours again.

Have you got a pedal mounted brake light switch going spare mate? not sure if that vr has 1

not yet dude, probs just worked loose. caddy rear light holders well known for playing up due to most having towbars fitted in the past so the wires are open from those crappy scotch clips Mad

You would'nt believe i had a cop car follow me for miles after the cambs meet, did'nt get pulled even though i had the light out and gerry plates on Very Happy

Picked up some bargains off another 16v donor the other day. Thanks liam b king
Inlet manifold, metering head, lines, WUR, throttle body(with plug as mine was dodgy), rocker cover, 16v fuel pump, brand new alternator(week old).
All for 40 Very Happy

Thought i'd clean up the rocker and inlet before i fit them.
Rocker before, with nitromors on. Bloody crap stuff these days!!

and after, used silver wheel paint


Inlet before, note that i've kept all the gubbins attached as to not break any seals. Hopefully be pre-set so my truck runs a little better after i re-time it.

Only did the upper inlet for now


Also decided to sort out the crank breather pipe as there's no where to connect it once you fit the smaller mk1 gti airbox.
I cut out the 16v airbox pipe, then trimmed it back so it was just a tube.

mk1 box on left!.
Drilled an hole in the mk1 box so the tube went in snugly. I then used plastic glue(much stronger than superglue) to hold in place.


Hope to have it all fitted tommorow :thumbs_up
