I'm putting my motor back together and got the rods, crank and main caps on, but i have 2 extra washers. Are these needing to go on the oil pickup to elevate it? I should took a picture before i tore it down

how big are the washers? I hope they are not for the studs.

Are you running the stock cap bolts? or ARP studs?

Quoting 9t1tsi:

No, the oil pump sits perfectly flush against the front case (with a small gasket in between)

The oil pickup support arm?

What size are the holes in the washers?
what colour and material?

Just cut off the support arm - you don't need it. 2G's don't even have one from the factory.

Thats not the Qestion on hand here. He is asking why he has extra washers from his ARP set. I wouold like to tell you its because the guys that package them cant count. I had a set of head studs that had an extra washer in them. Did they give you an extra nut also? Maybe call ARP and ask them.

I still dont belive that it is a good idea to cut the suport off either.

It sounds like they want you to put one washer on the head of the nut that is already holding the cap down, and then put your pickup on, then the next washer, folowed by the nut.

I can't guarantee this, just makes a little sense.

I dont think there would be enough thread on the ARP stud if this was the case, unless they now supply one longer stud????

I still use the pickup arm just in case...

Instead I had to use 2 washers and 1 nut, ie

NUT
WASHER
PICKUP ARM
WASHER (GIRDLE IN MY CASE)
MAIN CAP

hope that makes sense
