    • 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.

      Here's a coolant swirl pot. It de-aerates out of the top. Feeds in the side high up and exits out the bottom. https://www.pegasusautoracing.com/productdetails.asp?RecID=10244  
    • dvderlm
      Haynes Golf 1.6 carb shows swirl pot like this. That's not how I remember.   I thought it went in at highest side and to carb from lowest point and return was the central top because bubbles rise in the centre, but fuel is swirled around the outside. That's certainly how the Pierburg pot is plumbed, so I suspect Haynes may be wrong for the 1.6 plumbing. Compare   This is on the same page 4A-6 as previous pic, Haynes Golf and Jetta 84 to 92.    And I'm fairly sure feed from pump is 7.9mm tube and return is 5.9mm so it is hard to get it wrong.   But the carb well also removes bubbles, so it only matters when fuel prefers to drain back to the tank than flow into carb when it's needle valve reopens. This will happen with reduced flow from pump. Try clamping the return line partially?

      Mechanical fuel pump might be giving up?
    • dvderlm
      Long shot but the pump diaphragm might have split. it covers the weakening which occurs when open throttle because petrol is heavier than air so takes a while to catch up.   But you see it squirt down throat when operate the accel cable lever by hand? So not pump.   hm   Can you blow air through from mixture screw hole into the well and hear it bubble?
    • dvderlm
      More to fault find than tune, but essentially highest manifold vacuum is greatest suction from the pistons descending since an engine is just an air pump. You need a take off point below throttle plate..    Try www.classiccarhub.co.uk/articles/tuning-and-fault-finding-using-a-vacuum-gauge.html   or   https://www.onallcylinders.com/2015/05/08/quick-tech-how-to-read-a-vacuum-gauge-to-pinpoint-engine-problems/
