Audi TT Quattro Roadster, very nice, my buddy has one and it's awesome. Yeah I hear you,
the Corrado can be a real PITA some times but I just can't seem to get rid of it =) If you
want the car removed from your profile, just drop me an email or something. You're also
#1 in the Registry haha.

No it's fine Skye. I enjoy reminiscing...at least about the good times. I'm glad you're still having fun with yours. Did you ever get that MG body back?

Replaced the belt, checked the timing, no valve damage, runs great now, at least until the next thing breaks.

Got everythng repaired on the crank...new sprocket double pinned, replaced the mains and rod bearings. The engine is back in and running well. Even got the AC recharged and the alignment done. Life is good again.

We were able to tap the threads in the crankshaft with a 14mm X1.5 tap today. I will pin a new sprocket on it and build the spare motor.

Comment by Tom Lindmark
I decided that the fit of the new sprocket on the end of the damaged crankshaft is less than acceptable due to a small amount of wobble or play in the key-way. I will find a different crankshaft to build up the spare engine.

The knife-edged crankshaft came back from BBM yesterday so now I can begin re-assembling the 1.9 Litre.

Engine re-assembled. Started Thursday 4/12/07. Ran so bad I flat towed it to the shop. They found I had the distributor out of time which explains why it was running so retarded. They are trying to eliminate a miss at 2500 RPM but otherwise the engine is running well. I should have it back this Monday 4/16 following R-134A recharge

That's a drag. Any valve damage? Can't remember if it's an interference design.

No valve damage. Non-interference engine. New crankshaft (Polished balanced, Knife-edged) is on its way. Doing a mini rebuild.
