Top end rebuild in the back yard in the dirt… not much fun… but part of the VW experience!
hope everyone has a great day!! Great week!!! I’m still on a long ass vacation!! Longest one corporate and I have been away!!!! I can not say I am dying to get home though… my back hurts and I am sure this backyard rebuild won’t be doing my back any favors…8-(FranzKeymasterJune 7, 2018 at 10:18 amPost count: 1727

I am pretty sure I overheated it and started sucking valves while driving to Yuma… it was 107 degrees out…. I should have known better… when it cooled down, the valves would move back into place and then run “fine” till it got super hot again.. then all of a sudden it would sound like I had an exhaust leak… or predetenate…. I could hear something wasn’t right… but hoped I could get home… it sucked #4 exhaust and #3 intake… burned a whole through the head too!!!!!! Lesson learned.. no more re driving in 100 heat.. 😎WillyModeratorJune 7, 2018 at 1:30 pmPost count: 501
Think an external oil cooler and fan might help keep the temperature down?? ??CorporateKeymasterJune 7, 2018 at 1:47 pmPost count: 285

Sucks you had issues, but I guess some of the best trips are when you win against the odds and make it back under your own power.
