Anyone have a 8v crank layin around?

Postby 88vwjetta » Wed Nov 18, 2009 3:55 pm

I believe my crank bolt threads are shot because when i tried to remove the bolt it keeps spinning, getting tight, then loose again. =[ Also it sheared the key. LAMEEE

Anyway if someone has a 8v crank layin around and its usable let me know! I just want to do a simple swap out.

Pick n Pull is a 8v owners playground! My old golf was pretty much rebuilt with pnp parts.

sweet! this was the cause to all my timing problems and why it died on me. I swear all i ask for is to get the damn thing running to i can come pick up bumpers! haha I think i'm going to try one last time to pull the bolt, if it finally comes i'll try to run a tap into the crank and make sure the threads are good. hopefully its salvagable

I was FINALLY able to get the bolt out, big ol' impact gun and a big hammer got her out :thumb: I have a 14mmx1.5 tap coming in the mail to clean up the threads along with a new bolt and timing sprocket. I hope this finally fixes the problem and i can enjoy it for awhile :rofl: :eyes:
