Ok, I have built many engines but never a VW. I ended up getting an offer I could'nt pass up on a 98 Beetle with the 2.0 and a 5 speed. The previous owner had an infamous problem with the flange on the head that houses the thermostat or sensor. The bolts stripped so he pulled the head and decided to sell it instead of put it back together. So at this point i have to heli-coil the bolts for the flange. No biggie so far. My big problem is that I've never seen a VW 2.0 assembled, let alone been able to disassemble one! Can someone share some knowledge with me please? I have no clue about what parts to stay away from and what I should use. So far I need a head gasket kit, heli-coil, coolant housing flange, and a coil pack. I'm sure that my list will grow but its a good start for now. Thanks in advance for any help.
