    You could actually crank the engine over if all the cams, timing belt and plugs are removed. All the valves will remain closed so there's no risk for interference.

    It's probably not worth it...

    I think what you have in the picture looks good.

    I've never had any issue with starter engagement, even though there is some wiggle room. Axially it's fixed and the guide says it shouldn't...

    The clutch line is essentially a brake line with brake fluid so it should be comparable to the brake lines when it comes to heat resistance. The issue I've seen is with used 2.7t slave lines that...

    I assume that you are going to use a new replacement when you re-install it? Check to see that the accompanying stud is inserted far enough. If too much of it is sticking out, then it could be...

    At this point, you can get new vibrant flex joints but chances are they will not match the exact dimensions of what you have now.

    I'd still recommend the XSpower ones. The left front O2 sensor...

    I actually listened to your feedback and have changed out all the hardware so that none of the existing bolts are used. I just needed to personally verify whether some of the 75mm long stock bolts...

    I've often thought of this but have not way of proving whether the conduction causes any appreciable difference in temperature to harm anything. It's the supply line so in essence it's elevating the...

    It seems that all the 4.2 radiators have the loop for trans cooling (or warming).

    I haven't really done any research to see if the C5 S6 manual in the Euro III zone cars had manual trans cooling...

    They are definitely different. I think the RS6 is a Modine unit and it's all metal. I would suggest you find a legit old school radiator shop to take it to and see if they can repair it.

    FYI,...

    When I do a conversion, I charge extra if I have to keep the autotragic.

    I thought someone would at least want the solenoids and internal wiring.

    One plus is that I think the reluctor ring for...

    You need to pressure test the hose. They can internally rupture at and bulge when applying pressure and still not leak.

    Man that sucks.

    No fluid from the slave?

    Thee only thing left is the line from the master to the slave.

    I recommend the ss braided line that usp motorsports sells.
  15. I'm scrapping an RS6 HP24 transmission. Anyone need any parts before it gets tossed?

    Solenoids, harness, valve bodies, flanges, shafts, gears, etc.

    Let me know soon via PM

    Did you do something similar to the crazy elbow piece near the coolant reservoir, too? I think it might be cast aluminum though.

    You can use the radiator from an S6 or A6 4.2 if you delete all the cooling associated with the afterrun pump.

    I know of about 8 or 9.

    All are done a bit differently and I have my own opinions on certain things. I do all my own work and have the time to not cut any corners for the sake of convenience.
