Tear Down/Inspection

After day one of tear down. The airbox is out. Filter looked new. The intake manifold is out, man that thing was a pain... The fuel pump cam follower is clearly new. Exhaust manifold is all disconnected, just need to lift it out. Head looks clean. Going to need to remove the cams to get the head out because the shafts are in the way.

Valves after 250,000km. Not bad, I was expecting more carbon build up.

Day two or three. I stopped counting. Head is out, and exhaust manifold is out too. The cam carriers(sp?) are pretty scored. I dont know if these surfaces can be refinished or not. Going to take it to the forums to see if it can be salvaged. Otherwise, the valves look good, havent water tested it yet, might not have to if its determined the heads junk with the scored cam carriers. First set of valves are the valves that kissed the first piston.

Don't ask the forums. Consult a real vw/audi mechanic. I would take it to Smith's guy in Russell and let him make the call. Or better yet take it to Dynamotorsports. Can you feel the scoring if you run your finger over it? How does the cam look? - booneylander February 20th 2017

The pistons look good from the top, except for number 1. It kissed the intake valves, but just barely and the piston is actually chipped. I tried rotating the crank and it would not budge. The crank bearings clearly kicked the can.

The bottom end might be salvagable, but I might just want to get a complete used long block. I'll be calling around to see if I can get a long block locally on the cheap. If not, then I think its on its way out of the garage on a flat bed.
