    ah ok so no jumper block for yours, just the 2 pin brown plug near fusebox with the grey/white and yellow and your red/white live and brown earth go off and are tapped to the ciggy lighter wiring somewhere. split the loom down and pull out those wires, cut the power and earth where they're tapped in and splice the ends into the mk2 ciggy lighter.

    then all you do is plug the brown 2 pin into the engine loom brown 2 pin and you're done :)

    did you leave all the tappets upside down in oil for a good while? if not the affected tappet may be struggling to pump up. possibly an oil blockage in the head, did it look particularly gunked up? a good oil flush can often sort out issues like this

    theres various products on the market, you drain a bit of oil then pour in the flush treatment and run the engine up according to the instructions. the only potential issue doing this is it can clear out deposits holding old seals together, the oil cooler on my old GTI started leaking after I flushed it

    Ok . I have no fest cause my engine was completly renewed and also all new gaskets. Maybe factory problem with new tappets. The noise is Lower today but still there. I use Mann filter Yellow/green box i think.

    ok if the engine has been fully cleaned out then you wont have any issues with blocked oil channels inside, wasnt sure exactly how far you took the refurb. you may find that over time the noise goes away entirely, since its quieter now fingers crossed

    i hope so. and also there was problem before with passat we talked long time ago and i have situtation that car dont start. no spark and there was faulty hall sensor. you was writing that before to me. so i use hall sensor from mk3 1.8 90ps it is same as 2e.
    so car is more stabile and working very well. that is all for now i will continue for some time.
    Rubjonny BIG THANX to you cause you help me a lot and everything working fine :)

    Early on when I first got it, my old 16V started making tappet noises when I would start it - the only thing that worked for me was to use fully synthetic oil and after that it never made that noise again for as long as I had it - I always used VW/Bosch filters when I changed the oil.

    Hi all !!!

    Finally that day come after swap is over first trip was today. Im more than happy with all. Big upgrade after 1.6 engine. Also eibach arb kit is nice improvement in every way car is better and response is stronger. Thanx god noisy tappets are totaly silenced and engine runing very nice.
    I need to change radiator because this is from 1,6 and is too small and play with arches cause off wide wheels cause i want to go LOWER.
    There is so much things in next few months like Recaros , brakes upgrade, camshaft, exhaust and so many little things to do.
    Greetings from Croatia

    1.8 8v rad is what you want, use all 3 1.8 hoses to match and if not done so already change the thermostat flange on the waterpump for a mk2 version then the bottom hose is a straight fit. for top hose I find flipping it the opposite way than it was on the 1.8 plus a slight trim makes it fit much better

    yes any mk2 1.8 8v will do carb or gti, they use the same rad and hose set

    I kept the mk3 engine hose connections, ran thin hose to tank from the nipple on mk3 front flange and installed a short hose with bolt on the rad to cap off the nipple there. neatest solution IMO :)
