No NB Yellow Trifecta :(
Thanks and Nice work! :goodjob: I am in suspense waiting for the restart ...
Your are welcome! :goodjob: :banana:And she lives!!!! Finally got every back together and gave her her first start,she started right up but had a bad idle,and was throwing misfire codes.It took me a week to figure it out after replacing all the coils,new plugs and was about to replace the mass air sensor,then I read on the net to check the pvc hoses,sure enough the line leading all the back toward the fire wall was disconnected.I plugged it in and now the car purrs like a kitten.Thanks again to D2Beetle for his in depth tutorial on replacing the head,I could of not done it with out this!
Looks OK, but you can see the ribbing all to easy, so I would put it on my "soon" to-do list.Here is a picture of the timing belt on a 2000 1.8T Beetle I bought about 4 years ago. They (the dealer) said that all "scheduled Maintenance" had been done per the prescribed maintenance schedule and it was assumed that the timing belt was one of those items. Looking at the belt it appears to be in good shape with no cracking or any considerable wear. The car now has 141K miles on it and I bought it with about 130K miles. So what are your opinions looking at this belt? Let it ride? It's my freeway commuter running about 90 miles a day at 75 mph in no traffic.
