Installed at last! I spent ages trying to get the pressure accumulator out using an oil filter wrench and breaker bar but couldn't get a grip. So I asked the internet nicely via Neighbourly and a total stranger lent me his big grips for 15 minutes. Job done! Also it took ages yesterday to locate a turkey baster to drain the fluid before installing.

I just put a bottle of Redline in the tank and filled it up, early days, will report

bought it through trademe at $29.95, but picked it up from their shop on Great South Road https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1839579069

 I'm also planning a throttle body clean in the next few days, so the "only change one thing at a time" rule will not apply

best way to put a photo on here is to load it to a third party server and paste a link in your post.

80 - 90 - Coupe - quattro - S2 - RS 2 / Looking for an auto coupe'
« Last post by Rod_r on November 17, 2018, 06:35:23 pm »
Hi

Just joined now that I recently bought a 1992 1 owner 99km Audi 80 sedan.
I needed a second car for the family in a hurry and started out looking for an e30 but was put off by the high price for pretty average cars, so jumped on the Audi when it came on TMe.
I used to own a b3, and now I know why I always liked that car, as this car feels very solid and well made.

It has made me want to look for my preferred car, which would be a coupe, auto [ for family use ] and either b3 or b4, [ prefer b3 ]

I'm based in Auk, but happy to look anywhere for a decent car.

cheers, rod

The pad must be out of place. It still seems to be the same after a drive but isn't binding now. Will take it off again and check/re-grease the pins.

Started following this guide http://audifans.com/mirror/www.isham-research.co.uk/quattro/wiring/Typ85/mac01pin.html
to diagnose the rev limit at 4500rpm. The inlet air temp sensor wasn't so good! It has been fixed before by someone even worse at soldering than me. I melted the solder off and switched to crimps as suggested in the guide. The car definitely feels a bit better and I accelerated up to 6500 in second. I wasn't in a suitable place to go any faster!

Just a reminder that DUKE (SKY 23) has extensive live coverage - it is also available, I believe, on-line - https://www.tvnz.co.nz/livetv/tvnz-duke
