Metal coolant pipe the long one

Postby Eagle1 » Thu Apr 05, 2018 9:59 am

So I've recently got the Mk2 Scirocco back on the road after a 9 year slumber. I'm looking at changing the head so my spare and gone for a skim. I was looking at my Mk2 golf and noticed that the metal coolant pipe is a larger diameter. So I'm going to borrow it off the spare engine and try it on the Scirocco. The only things I notice at the moment are I'll have to retail the Scirocco header tank pipe. I'll have to change the rubber hose onto the water pump. I also notice that there is only one fixing point on the side of the cylinder head where the Golf has one on the gearbox and one on the engine mount. I'm also looking at modifying the "crushed" section by the oil filter to make it the same diameter unless someone knows if it's flat for a reason . Ill let you know.
