    • 2021 Calendar Entries
      We are looking for entries for the 2021 Club Polo calendar.
      The rules are simple, just post up a picture, the picture must be one that you have taken (or you have the permission of the photographer to use it) and you must be able to send me a high res or raw version. I'll be in contact via PM should we want a full size picture but it is not a guarantee you'll be included in the calendar.
      We as always want well thought out scenic landscape photos.
      Portrait photos taken in Morrison's car park with a Snapchat filter will not be considered!
      There are 12 months plus a cover picture that we need to fill. If you have a specific month you'd like to see your picture if it were chosen then by all means let us know when submitting your entry.
      Ideally we are looking to have all entries in by the end of November in order to have the calendars ready before Christmas.
      As a slight change to previous years, we are offering a free calendar to the picture that makes it on to the front cover, so get posting and good luck!

    • Last week I spoke to Billing and they are reviewing the planned events on a weekly basis with regard to the information they have been given by HMG, at present there is no reason to cancel the event, we agreed to talk again in the middle of next month. 
      As I'm sure you can appreciate things are changing almost on a daily/hourly basis, so keep checking the news and stay safe, if there is anything that changes we will let you know ASAP

    • This year the  Polo Social is our 20th anniversary year to be held on 03/04/05 July 2020 it is put on by Club Polo which is open to all VW Polo owners from any Club.
      So, if you are part of a local club bring everyone down and grab a spot in the field.

      What to Expect?
      A relaxed event where you can catch up with other members, see their cars and meet new people from the club. Expect a big club meet which lasts the weekend with some beers and BBQs!
      What’s going on?
      Details are yet to be finalised but plans are for the club BBQ to return on the Saturday night, Show and Shine on the Sunday. We are looking to have some things going Saturday daytime. 
      Where is it?
      The event is held at Billing Aquadrome, Northampton Billing, NN3 9DA. http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ Tel: 01524 781 453 We have held the event here for a number of years, it’s an excellent venue which really suits the club’s event. There is food available on site and there are also a couple of pubs and a Fish & Chips shop in walking distance. There is also the Mini-Golf, Karting and a leisure centre with a pool.
      What do you need?
      If you are camping then you need the general camping gear of tent, sleeping bag, etc. If you want to clean your car up for the show and shine on the Sunday there is a cold-water supply so, bring your bucket and cleaning gear. Also bring some money but there is a cash machine by the entrance to the site.
      How much does it cost and how to book?
      If you are camping the rate is £TBA/night. A pitch is for a tent for up to 4 people, if you have extra cars they may charge you extra. If you are a paid up member there is a discounted rate details will be in the members only section soon https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/forum/30-members-only/  To book head to http://www.billingaquadrome.com/ and click book now. Then please select Shelduck 2 as this is our field. If you are camping for just the Saturday night then its £TBA per pitch. You can book this online as per above but you might not be able to select Shelduck 2. Please select another field but just pitch up in the Shelduck 2 field with the rest of us when you arrive as there will be loads of room. The day rate is £10 per car.

      Good news.    old fuel in tank?   Turning engine over should operate fuel pump to fill carb well in about 15 seconds.   Then autochoke flap closed should ensure a very rich mixture of fuel and air is sucked through idle jet.   Small squeeze of gas pedal will operate accelerator pump jet to help liquid fuel in spray form reach intake plenum.    But old fuel will have lost some of the lighter more volatile compounds.   Ethanol fuel E5 will absorb moisture from air in the well or tank with old open breather trap. I'd suggest FuelFit or Startron if you are laying up a car for a long time with fuel in.   There might be some Ethanol induced white/gold crustiness in the carb itself. Hopefully getting it to start will suck it out, or you might be looking at dismantle, ultrasonic clean, new carb gaskets and diaphragm repair kit. 
    • chatlourd
      It suddenly dawned on me that it might not be starting because the carb is dry as it hasn't run for a couple of month so I went to the garage today, took the air cleaner off and put some petrol in the carb and presto it started right up... ! All the mechanics rushed over to ask me what I had done to get it going as they had been scratching their heads for weeks... I guess that's the problem when you work on fuel injection all the time... you forget the basics....
    • dvderlm
      If you ran it with breather unit hose disconnected you could get a p0171 lean.   p0171 might also be plastic brake servo pipe split, and that would also match the awful running once warmed up.    I think BBY and AHW are similar.  
    • Chisboy
      Managed to get to the breather(unfortunately my phone battery was low so couldn't get any pics). As you said it was blocked, cleaned it up since it was too late to get another one. Ran fine for about 3km then started smoking, loss of power and hiccups, no engine light but I diagnosed n came up with p0171, now it's burning more air😂😂, removed the battery to reset it. I will see it in the morning. Any suggestions?, I replaced the injectors just a month ago.
