what brought me to the motor locking up is that, it wouldnt turn over at all, so i tried to hand turn it no luck. So i called up a family friend thats a vw nut, and he messed with it for 1 and a half and said motors locked up, probably the crank cracked or broke(i think thats what he said??) and that it could be a few other things to, but its like just about the same price to rebuild the motor as it is for a new one with a new clutch and pressure plate and all that good stuff. Dual carbs and all that can be bolted on later and when i get more moneys. Well yeah i am gonna look on ebay too. well i gotta go pick up my girlfriend so she can get her nails done or somthing.


Peace,
Wil
