    The thought has gone through my head already

    Only thing I am slightly worried about is the head issue...

    Yes, that a little strange. The question Im asking is why it needed a rebuild 6 years ago and again needs the head replacing. Im not scared of mechanical work myself about would probably buy it for the body and interior. Horses for courses. You could always get someone to fix it for you and be done with it. Replacing a head is not out of the question. As anything, just needs to be done right. That and the cannon exhaust!

    Food for thought for you gezza. Could be one for a little modifying and fun...

    Hi guys, just thought I would let you know that I have added an online gallery now with some very hi-res picks that you can download:

    http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/55157...20GTI?h=0704f2

    I had a read through your comments, I found out some more info on the head the other day by an enthusiast who inspected the car. Apparently the bolt in question is the only bolt on the head that requires a spacer which many people forget to replace. So the bolt gets over tightened. My guess is that it happened when the engine was rebuilt, and has probably had this leak for a long time. Apparently it is quite a common mistake mechanics make.

    And I agree with the exhaust, it is horrible! I was going to cut the ridiculous tip off and put something more reasonable on (something to match the diameter of the exhaust), because I think the exhaust itself is quite a good one.

    Any road, any questions, requests for photos or inspections are welcome.

    cheers, john

    yeah block holds bottom end. I cracked my sisters when doing her head gasket. Had to change the whole engine in the end.

    You could always put an mi16 motor in it!

    Block? I had a mechanic from Alpine Affair look over it, which included putting it on a hoist and he inspected it thoroughly, and he said it was the cylinder head that was cracked, not the block. Maybe the guy who came to look at it yesterday was wrong then, he didn't look underneath it, he just said it was his guess that that was the problem.

    If the lack of spacer has caused the problem it is because the bolt reaches the end of the threaded section section and pushes out the end into the water pump area, no real problem, or if there is more metal there it will actually crack the block.
    No reason why it would damage the head unless it wasn't done up tight and the lack of support caused flexing of the head at that spot, now that would be REALLY slack mechanicing!!

    Cam85 has a good point, it would be worth your while seeing if someone who knows these cars can come and take a look for you, to be sure. I'm only going on what the mechanics from Alpine Affair told me, because I don't know any better.

    Having someone see it first hand will be better than speculation.

    all the best,

    John

    Just go and take a look to see if the extra spacer is missing, at the back and on the left, near cam belt.

    Had a think about this, the spacer probably is there, normally you would do up the bolt, stuff the block then do it properly with the spacer attached. The bolt would hit the water pump before it is tight.

    on the 306 it never got tight. It was basically really easy with the ratched. I didn't realise I had done it untill we put water in it.
