Hi ,

Unfortunately it looks like I have a crack in the case leaking oil into the fan housing and covering everything in oil. Engine has been out and main oil seal , oil cooler and seals ect replaced, however the leak persists. next step is to bench test it to confirm,. However I'm wanting to replace the 1600 for a nice new 1776 anyway at some point, so might as well do it now.

I was wondering what supplier or builder of engines you guys recommend ?

Cheers

John
 
Not sure where you are John, but I can recommend The Farnborough VW Center (Ask for Andy) and E's Autos (ask for Ian) for a rebuilt engine.

A proper rebuilt engine will cost more than an online supplied engine from one of the main parts suppliers, and there are very good reasons for it.
