I dug out the engine and remembered that I had a tub full of spare parts. Two carburetors, some ignition parts, the starter, alternator, exhaust manifold, etc. It's all there, and a few extras.

P.S. - based on my experience hauling and rebuilding my engine, and reading the stories of several other A4 owners (I'm looking at you, Dave Neptune), I'd say that engine is most likely saveable.
