not sure. it very well could be. but it's had the tick since i bought it. so my guess is even if it is a rocker there is most likely more damage. i dont have the room to take the motor apart at my house to see how much damage has been done. the good news is im not losing coolant

I drove mine a few years with the tic fearing all the crap people say it could be, fixed for $12

See if you can pin point where it is coming from, with a screwdriver you could clearly tell mine was coming from the valve cover

After buying Brett's old 5 speed D2 I figured I had to start posting sometime. I didn't exactly do all the work today but I'll post it anyway. After running into a tree at 3 in the morning (wasn't his fault), it needed some work.
When I got it..

Poser shot.


Took the rear taillight out to change a bulb and saw this..


Original plan was to just put some POR15 in there to stop the rust. Ended up doing the whole bumper.


While I was at it I painted the frame.


Amish sandblasted the sliders for $40.


Brett got 2 new fenders, a new hood, and light finishers that Dan painted. Can't fit the drivers side light in with the broken bumper.




Bumpers off to get fixed.


A few more things and it should be 'done.' Then it will be time to scratch up the new paint.

A tree fell on me while I was waiting in trail traffic.
Fortunately it hit the glass and did not hit the roof and upper lip of the window frame. Then this ~10-12 in tree top rolled off my hood.

Took the bumper to a friend to get welded back together. Rear bumper is getting a rear recovery point welded on Saturday.



Welded on a collar and drilled a hole to make skid plate/steering protector removable.

HAHA forgot about that skid plate. that was a Terrafirma prototype D2 bellyskid that Justin sent me. It didnt fit for shit because it had the exhaust cutouts for a Tdi. so I gave it to Brett and he cut it up and made that skid plate.
