    Geezer at the scrappy couldn't understand why I wanted a 02J starter, tried to get me to take a 020 starter. Couple of hours spent in a beach front parking spot later, works a treat. 50 euro seemed a bit steep for a second hand starter though.

    Also installed a little cable tie mod so that the oil leaking out the turbo air intake drips into the ground rather than onto the driveshaft as its been spat around everywhere. I realise I probably need a new turbo....

    I hope both ascents are equally as enjoyable. Although the descent on your bike may be a little more thrilling!!

    Averaging 35 mph for 6 miles on a pedal bike is brilliant.

    Ascent definitely better with the PD, descent better powered by crepes and beer

    that's a beautiful view! hope caddy is running well!

    My electric bike averages 40mph on the flat but it's not the same as descending

    Rev counter, I'm just using a 30 quid conversion box, the same as is offered for 20vt cars into mk1s. It means the revs read correctly on the dial but obviously the red line is in the wrong place. Think I got the box on ebay

    cool, simple as that, need to find a set of diesel clocks with tacho, unless you can get a diesel specific facia

    I don't think mk1 diesel rev counter clocks exist is the problem. Reg and someone else on here made a mk1 GTD counter background graphic which looked the business but I hadn't fully investigated it yet, details are on my PC at home

    im sure they do, you may have to search germany, or the US for diesel Jettas

    Also those clocks will no doubt run off the alternators W terminal or whatever it is, might that not be compatible with the rev counter converter box?

    Well 4000 miles later and with the gritters coming out for the first time my caddy was reinstated in the shed.

    Despite resistance from my dad during the project's progress, in the end he was the one most keen to have it indoors over the winter!!

    I'm trying to convince him to get a project of his own now....

    Hopefully over the winter I'll get to the bottom of the poor starting issues. I think the first job is to get it hooked up to VAGCOM

    If your looking at vagcom I bought one of the full versions from eBay. Was £50 but can do everything on cars up to 2018.

    Just remember, if your old man buys a classic car, your Caddy gets to sit outside all winter, so dont encourage him to much until you build a bigger workshop
