Re: odd idle issue

I THINK I found at least part of this issue. Distributor died on me last Saturday. And its an intermittent deal to boot. I WILL be replacing it soon as well as re timing the motor to be sure everything is in order.

Re: Wiring question

I have the gray/blue right where it should be PLUS these. Hence why I asked. I will most likely pull said mini harness out as I do not see anything in the diagrams which match what I have.

As for the 90/100 mm stuff, ive owned many a mk2 and those are both as well. I'll try and do some measurements and see whats up. Thank...

Axle question

Stupid question. And I dont like asking those BUT sometimes you just need clarification.

1991 cab. Automatic. I need new axles and I can only find one listing for either side. Are they the same for auto and manual? And if not where can I get auto ones?

Thanks guys!!
