comment What is the general rule, if one exists, for determining the difference between crank horsepower and wheel horsepower?
I can confirm that the 20% rule fits right in with my real-world experiences with my latest project car.

comment Fixing a water-damaged remote key
Nice. This is also the way you fix a cellphone dropped in the toilet (or any other body of water).

comment Parking — in gear or neutral?
I have three European cars which allow me to start them without engaging the clutch. They're fairly new too. It's not such a ubiquitous feature as you might think. It's a good feature though.

Do you actually see a pool of coolant under your car if it has been parked for a while?

comment Car stalls when braking (VW Mk1 Golf)
It may also be worth your while to check whether there isn't dirt or debris in the petrol tank or somewhere along the line up to the injectors. Maybe when braking, this garbage is clogging the fuel delivery system somewhere and starving the engine. It's worth a look if nothing else works.

The differential isn't the problem so much as the front-rear transfer case.

comment Most appropriate small engine to rebuild for learning purposes?
I was going to say that a nice engine to work on is the Vauxhall/Opel x14xe engine, but it's probably not going to be useful unless you want to put it in a car. Also, seeing as you're in the US somewhere, you probably won't (easily) find parts for it.
