    Owner,Private
    Location, Finland
    Model, Golf Country
    Year, 1991
    Motor, 98Hp 1P (now PF)
    Extras: Power steering,remote controlled central locking system with anti theft immobilizer.

    I bought it a few weeks ago after a long time of thinking do i need it or do i not. I came to the decision didn’t need it but i wanted it so… and it was quite cheap until now…

    Guy from whom I bought the car it had painted by the original shade of G2. The car has a new rear differential with a viscous coupling. The rear shock absorbers has been conducted on the Bilstein parts and are serviceable. The rear springs are taken from Audi 100.

    Car has been driven 313,000 kilometers. But now the engine crankshaft bearings went to get stuck, so I need to fix this engine or install a new engine. I have found one PB engine and get to see it I buy possibly. And then maybe ECU upgrade from Chris_S.
    There are also new front headlamps. Generator, Oilpump, Valves, And a mod that impresses me, 21st centry style stiletto keys with central locking that works.

    And thank you Chris_S for helping me out on my engine problem.

    Car interior fixes needs to be done, such as the seats and dashboard.

    It’s snowing now here in Finland. Got to get urgently this car running again so i could really use that 4wd. I think i’m going to buy a 1500kg winch also and marix puma tyres. But firstly i have to find a decent engine.

    Country is going to get “new” engine next weekend. I bought new mask also and some new interior parts. Next thing would be checking that spare visco if those mounting lugs could be fixed (it has lost threads somehow) and maybe change that visco stuff with new wacker.

    Could you possibly retap the threads the next size up?

    I dont know it yet. It looks like someone has tried to repair it with helicoil style threads so it might be hard to fix so it would be a lasting repair.

    But to start from somwhere, how to take it apart of rear differential?

    Helicoils should work if they are fitted properly.

    Yes i know that, but 2 of those has broken so fitting new ones migth not work anymore. I think it would be better to let someone else with better knowledge to check those threads.

    Btw. that broken engine had a quite large amount of metal particles in oil sump. Oil pump had failed.

    Ok. Now i got new problem with this new engine. Spark ignition distributor is some how different than that on old 1p engine which controls timing advance with Suction/air pressure and this PF uses different method (electrical?). My mechanic said he can change those like bolt-on.

    Oh yes, there was one cracked bolt “hole/lug” in that angle drive. I hope it works with rest which are intact.

    Its quite hard to write here when you dont know the English technical vocabulary, but hope you understand.

    Dont worry, your English is far better than my Finnish would be! [:D] Chris S

    What threads have stripped? Is it the 3 holes in the viscous coupling??? If so they are threaded inserts, you can remove the locking washer from the end of the coupling (looks like a star washer) and extract the insert. I had to have one machined for my coupling.
