Evening everyone!! It is crazy to think this thread has been looked at 25,000 times!! Nice to know that people other than me and my direct VW posse are interested in what's going on, especially two lovely ladies like Lucy and little northern Rochelle! The car's still a fair old way form bein finished to!! Mind you, is any resto ever really finished?! I'm hoping the car will be pretty much as I want it by my birthday (March!). Keep watching this space, time will tell!

Ben :hangloose

This mean the car will be at the VolksWorld show :)
I really really hope so! I've never before been to the Volksworld show so it'd be a great one to aim for! It's just a matter of whether or not I can afford to do everything by then! I'm not sure if I'll be able to get the beam narrowed by then! As I said, time will tell ;)

Phew, glad you found it early. Are you going to be able to sort it out, or is there a new one on the way to you?
Well Seth, after compressing the valve manually, the pushrod seems to have snapped into place so there's nothing visually wrong with the motor! Bit annoying really as in theory, there's nothing wrong with the engine now but I am worried about there being a defect there. Still, the motor has 12months warrenty so if it does go wrong, it'll be straight back out and on its way back to German Fredish Swench ;)
