I learned two valuable lessons yesterday.
Lesson one: Collin Gyenes of TECHTONICS TUNING can do some very nice work on a Volkswagen 8v hydraulic lifter head.
Lesson two: United Parcel Service can ship a 32.9 LB cylinder head from Sheridan, OR to Bethel, ME in three days for $93.02. Thanks Team!
The head install went great and took about ten minutes, but we still have one small problem. I am missing the device that connects the clutch to the driveshafts, I think the experts call it a transaxle.
