Anyone know what the sensor is?
It's by the front bumper on the RHD of the vehicle. I'm guessing it's the temp sensor for the OEM dash mounted exterior temperature display?
I cheated on my 77 with a younger model.... I'll be posting over in the 100's section now too. (No my 77 is not for sale. The hundred is my wife's new truck.)
One of those rare cases where the smaller number is actually greater than the larger number.
Now butter 'em up and fit 'em both in the garage...
They will both fit, but I doubt 2 100's would. I've got a bunch gym crap I've gotta move to get the 100 to fit. Our golf (my new daily) is
In there now too
Thank you for the reply. I've removed the sensor and the world seems to be carrying on as per usual!
How did you convince your wife she needed the 100 ??
"Sorry honey but if the golfs out you might have to park on the lawn"
Not too much arm twisting. Several factors. Poor design of the golf. Specifically: 1) when raining and a back door is opened a stream of water flows onto our kids' car seats 2) the OE tires are complete garbage for anything but straight and level driving. 3) we got stuck on i65 last winter during as ice storm. Had we been in our 77 i would have crossed the median and drive home. Finally, during the 70 series meet, Danielle enjoyed driving and wanted her own toy. So it wasnt too difficult.
Road trip. Took it down to ACC in Atlanta for a real going over. Passed with a clean bill of health. The only problem is some pinholes in the radiator, so I'll find a radiator rebuilder in town and get it recored and rebuilt. Other than that the truck needs nothing - which gives me breathing room to lay in a new suspension and start hoarding some important parts.
Why, call Rob Smith at Oddiron and get a fantastic new one. Do the WP, t-stat, and idler pully too.
What is this temperature display you speak of?! Pic please!
Will do. Actually need to do the fan clutch as they mentioned play. I'll get a water pump and fan clutch from cruiser outfitters and do it all at once.
Robin! To the Parts Mobile!
Groovy steering wheel fireball. You need an 8 ball shift knob.
Doh... yeah that explains it - guess it's been a while since I saw one of those intact
Best bedroom ever!
It's a 3B. Completely different set-up than your 1PZ engine.
Going to stay OEM if at all possible. Cooper cools really well.
