You want a 6002VSR sealed bearing. The seals in the bearing pic are rubber and won't hold up well to the heat of the engine and clutch. You want one with viton seals.

Thanks. Do you (or anyone) know if the one sold by 034MS has the viton seals?

Going only by the color of the seal, that should be viton. I priced out the viton sealed bearing through by job and they were about $32 a piece. That's with our bulk rate discount haha.

Spent some time last night working on the replacement 7a. My plan is to clean up the block, give it a coat of engine paint, and freshen up all of the upper gaskets. Things were going well for most of the night until I got to the coolant flange on the head. I managed to mess up all three of the bolts. I rounded off 2 of the hex heads and the other one sheared off. So, that should be fun to deal with. Decided to call it quits for the night. :bangshead: I'm tempted to just leave it on as is, but worried about the one that sheared off.

Trying to stay somewhat organized.

The borked bolts needed some persuading, but they didn’t put up too much of a fight.

I ended up buying a bucket-top parts cleaner with a submersible pump and a flow through brush. It works pretty well, but requires water based degreaser.

Got distracted and worked a little on the valve cover.

One more thing checked off the to-do list. Rebuilt the shift linkage. I'm cheap and wanted to try the DIY method, so I followed this Audiworld DIY.

Started with this.

Ended with this.
Image

And used a few pieces from the hardware store and amazon to get there.

Here's a list of the parts I used in case anyone needs them.

From the hardware store (Ace has the best selection in my area):
  • (2) Nylon spacers 1/2" ID 5/8" OD 1/2" long
  • (2) split steel spacers 3/8” ID 1/2" OD 3/4" long (cut down to about 13.5mm)
  • (2) 5/8" electrical grommets
  • (2) M6x1.0 16mm allen heads(used to bolt u joint assembly to rod)
  • (4) M5x.8 10mm for holding box together
From Amazon:
  • (2) 25mm x 10mm threaded sleeves. Threaded for M6x1.0. They come in a 10 pack. Joined together with an M6x1.0 bolt that I cut the head off of. I added this to my list of parts because I couldn't tap the ends of the steel pin.

Another slow progress, boring update...

Serviced the injectors this weekend.

Image

And one of the reasons for the lack of any real progress. Been fighting the leaves the past couple of weekends.
