    Here’s a pic of the gasket between the two halves of the carb

    The old spark plugs were full of carbon and one in what I would guess was number four? Furthest right was wet is the choke flap the bit on the top of the carb? I have an auto choke I believe

    top and bottom of carb must seal well, was the gasket paper damaged anywhere.

    could be. Take a spark plug out if it's covered in carbon then rich, if wet then not igniting, if shiny white too lean. This is with choke flap nearly closed, right?

    Non starting 1.0 mk2 breadvan

    Thanks for your reply It only starts if I put fresh fuel or carb cleaner into the carb from the top. Other than that it just doesn’t want to fire up. I Forgot to mention I took the fuel line off at the carb after the fuel pump and it pumps well into a water bottle. I can blow through the needle valve and when I took the carb apart the float moved but there only a small amount of fuel in the float chamber I’d say between a quarter full and half way. I've also blown through the fuel lines with a bicycle pump. I have a pierburg 1b carb, could it be something as simple as fuel/air mix?

    Starts then dies with fresh fuel? died when braking. Most likely rubber base mount vacuum leak but you changed that (carb flange). less likely fuel pump bust or fuel lines clogged with rusty crud. Ethanol phase separation water in tank. (siphon it from below then add isopropyl alcohol) needle valve blocked float stuck on side wall

  12. Hi guys, Tearing my hair out with my 1.0 1990 mk2 breadvan, HZ engine code When I first purchased it it needed some TLC and had new Filters, fuel tank, fuel pump, distributor rotor arm ht leads battery And brakes After almost a year it started cutting out when stopping at a junction or heavy braking. I got fed up with it and left it on the drive way and bought a new car. Fast forward a couple of years years and I want to restore it. Mostly to learn, possibly to sell after not quite sure yet. However, on trying to start the engine with new fuel it refused. Since then I have changed leads plugs ignition coil carburettor flange The distributor and rotor arm still look ok. I have 12v at ignition coil with ignition turned on and if I pour petrol/spray carb cleaner into carb it will start for a few seconds then die out. Whilst the carb was off I tried my best to clean it without doing a full service. I have also blown through the needles with a compressor. has anyone got any ideas what the issue could be? Im getting close to torching it 🔥😡 many thanks in advance if you can can help diagnose my problem. ☺️

    Afh mk2f gearbox

    Thanks for the reply. Is there any dis advantage of using a 5 speed from a mk3 golf 1.4? I was under the impression they were the same box with an extra gear. I take it the 6n Afh box is not an option?
  14. Yeah! I have a little vice. I just took a couple of mm off each one (if that) with a hack saw, just so it's not bottoming out. Added a cardboard gasket in between the adaptor and the rubber flange. Seems to do the job. The car drives, just got to set it all up properly.

    6n2 release bearing

    ive just realised the broken bearing is in the boot of the polo (in garage) so i cant get a pick atm. it could have been, there was scoring on the tube part of the guide, so it could have been rubbing and caused guide to fail. the fact its now happened twice is confusing me so much. could the pressure plate be at fault?
  17. dvderlm

    6n2 release bearing

    Surely the bearing pressed sideways on the sleeve causing the tube around which it rotates to part company with the sleeve flange. So the guide was not firmly attached to the box or at an angle or had a manufacturing fault. Photos would be good. Fits with cause of roughness engaging/decoupling clutch

    6n2 release bearing

    Thanks for the replies. Ill try address everything. First yes i did get the release bearing and guide sleeve back. The guide sleeve had seperated the flange part from the tube and then caused bearing to snag. Ill get pics tomorrow. The garage said nothing else was damaged. The cable is pagid. I dont know if pedal box is ok. It creaks once in a while but clutch sits level and ive performed yoga to look underneath and pedal box welds dont seem to flex or have noticable damage on. Ive only had a licence for a year but im 30 and have driven a forklift for over 10 years and drove a van on private land for the same. Im very aware of riding the clutch aswell as good practice pulling away etc! I honestly wish i could blame my driving, itd make finding the issue so easy . 😞 When the release bearing first went the car was on 103100 miles with the original bits!! Id driven it from about 84k Ive spoken to the garage and hes a family friend and i hope is pretty straight with me. Hes as stumped as i am so this time im going to suggest he buys the parts just to eliminate one variable. Ill ask what condition the pressure plate is in also.

    Hi mate when you fill the box just fill until it starts to overflow. Better to have plenty in... have a read of zobs reply too!

    Got a bit more done over the last couple of days - finished up stripping the underside of the slam panel (seen here before cleaning the orange dust off prior to treating with the Hydrate 80) Underside of slam panel cleaned + treated. Top side of slam panel also treated. I'll get the rest of the front bits treated next time. Because the front valance still needs to be welded on, the strengthener must have weld through primer on the parts which will take the plug welds. The rest of it will be treated with Hydrate 80.
  24. Thanks for the suggestion but it's doesn't look to fit. The current flange has 4 captive bolts that fasten down through the manifold. I've still not made any progress 😕

    Washer Pipe on an 08

    Cheers dude, atm it has a piece of metal pipe that fits well and rubber hose over the top.
  27. I STRONGLY recommend that you have something (pliers?) to hold the screw whilst you cut it - Your post brought back memories from long ago, when I cut a screw whilst holding it - finished up with two stitches in my finger! Regards

    Washer Pipe on an 08

    Pretty common on all vag cars. The "proper" method seems to be to bodge a coupler into it. http://www.vwpolo.net/corrugated_tube_repairing-764.html Assuming its the back one, I'd guess if you bought a new hose, it would come as a single piece with about a mile of hose on that would need drawing through the car. The only way I can think of doing this would be to pull a decent bit of cord through as you pull the old hose out, then use it to draw the new one in. My worry would be it getting caught on a random clip somewhere.
  29. Is this any use? http://www.webcon.co.uk/shopexd.asp?id=8907
