[T3] Happy Birthday Hothe!

I think Keith must be doing an experiment  on the longevity of a well-maintained Type 3 engine. It's brave to continue well past the normal service life to find out when it will expire, perhaps catastrophically.  Better to rebuild before that happens.

I know my engine is coming up to a rebuild as it rumbles for a few seconds until the oil pressure comes up.  It does deter its use to take the club display stuff to a VW event, so I've been using the Golf 3 TDI Variant instead, but it's only delaying the rebuild.

You've got more than 6 months, and you must have spare engine parts 
stashed around there. Why not build yourself a nice new TYPE 3 engine? 
You could do this easily in the time available, and that would save you a lot 
of stress on that drive.
