That's coming along very nicely indeed. Wish I could find the time to get mine sorted so quickly!

Very clean and shiny, if the inside matches the outside it should give you another 150k miles.

whats a pushrod ??????????

CS: (trivia) The core of the push rods is wood. It's the only piece of wood in a VW engine, it's there to provide oil to the lever that open the valves.

I think it's some kind of rod thing that....pushes something. Then again, I'm a girl, what do I know? The car is orange

(I'm cringing to myself saying all that stuff. I can weld and do some stuff to the car, I just don't know much about engines)

The push rods are in the tubes you can see here:
