    This task I would never attempt with my limited skills and tools.
    That takes BIG Balookas.

    spoke to him. Asked him about the engine. Same story. He has a transporter engine he wanted to fit but don't have the time.

    He was very put out when I told him you can't fit the transporter engine to the touareg.

    Deadline has come and gone for the guys to get back to me on engines.

    It's being brought back home on flatbed tomorrow.

    Can't you use the internals from a used T5 engine?

    self study document on the R5 engine

    http://vwpress.files.wordpress.com/2.../ssp-305-e.pdf

    I'm not stressed for any parts or work except if the bore is damaged. That's the only funny thing on that engine. The rest is same as any other diesel engine with a few tweaks.

    Following on from this thread
    http://www.4x4community.co.za/forum/...d.php?t=130745

    Basically misfire on cylinder 5 and later diagnosed as low compression. Low compression cause is still unknown. Engine hasn't been opened yet.

    Plan is to take engine out, opened and then decide from there on replacement or recondition.


    "Knoppies" got delivered back home today




    Cylinder 5's cam lobes and lifters (a bit dusty from travelling and being looked at)

    I'll give Marius credit, his work and advice on 4M40 motors has given me the confidence to slowly try smaller work on my LWB, even if its simple tasks like spacer mods etc.

    Go for it Marius and good luck!
