Andrew is out in the garage. Used the webcam to check in and make sure he was still working, yet I see him sitting down on the job... (Prepping lifters)

Bleeding/flushing llifters... my right thumb has a bruised tip now.

I'm trying to improve on my photo-taking with this one... never seem to take enough photos at the right time.

Oil filter housing needs to change to ABA otherwise it's stuffed into the firewall.

Intake manifold needs to be trimmed to a taper plenum to clear brake booster.

Waterneck on the back of the head will need a solution... either a super tight elbow or cap and relocate.

The firewall will need "adjustment" for the starter to fit otherwise a re-group of parts to go with a starter relocation under the exhaust manifold/Audi B5. :bam!:

So that square aluminum plate bolts to the torque tube and then bolts to the bell housing?

Steel. Aluminum is not as forgiving in regards to load cycles.

Air/Air. Air/Water is too complicated for the value.
