10 minutes old...http://members.cox.net/rickn1453/Video_072106_001.asf

So my Frankenmotor is alive! Albeit in the 92' Cabby instead of the Scirocco (long story). Had a close call with a drop in oil pressure (screen was dirty :shock: ) but now all is right. Upped her to 20-50W synthetic as well.

Wheel bearings have crapped out now, but she's running good! Got an intake coming in the mail since she needs to breathe better, and that 1.75" exhaust has GOT to go! :twisted: Oh, and I fixed that nasty bearing on the alternator...

Good Job Sir. Nothing like a bigger intake and exhaust to make a stuffy engine breath much better.

But now you've got the SV for the summer. It's been over 2 years since my last bike and nothing is filling the void. Thought Jeeps and Cabbies would, but it's not the same.

The damn flanges on the cat are leaking badly. Sounds like crap even though there are new gaskets. :evil:

Brandy new spindles, bearings and purple calipers to match the block have it rolling nicely though!
