    Polo is being sold on ebay: Advert as below: My Polo is in excellent condition for its age and has been in the family since 1991 when it was bought new by my sister! The body work is superb and the paintwork is all original and in very good condition. There is no rot at all. The tyres are all in excellent condition and the spare wheel and battery are brand new as of June 2019. The interior is in excellent condition aside from couple of small cigarette burns. There have been powerful speakers fitted in the rear parcel shelf. There is a decent Radio/Cassette with graphic equaliser fitted. The car was stored from 2003 to 2013 in a warm, dry garage and then put back on the road for a couple of years before coming back into storage i 2016. The car starts first time and runs very well. My Polo now has a full MOT. New Battery, New Spare Wheel, Brand new MOT, drives superbly. The car has been in my family from new. On the MOT there were advisories for the flexible brake hoses but these have been advisories since 2013 - there is slight corrosion on the ferrules but the rubber is absolutely fine. Also an advisory for a small oil leak from the gearbox [where the selector fork enters the box]. A small chip in the windscreen [another long standing advisory] but it's very low down and is not really noticeable when driving. MILEAGE: 97588 and it's genuine. There are receipts for recent [2015] MOTS & repairs. Last service done at 95215 miles next service due at 105215 and the current mileage is 97588. The car has been regularly serviced from new. To arrange viewing call me ["JP"] on 07493 032764. The car is in a locked garage away from Public access. I'll need at least 24 hours notice. I have video clips showing the car sitting at 70MPH on the way to the MOT station. Just ask via text for the link. There is no reserve and I'll let the auction run to completion now the car has a 12 month MOT. VIEWINGS: PLEASE NOTE THAT NO VIEWINGS WILL BE POSSIBLE ON SATURDAY, 29th JUNE.

  4. I am on my second polo 9N over the years. Has anyone had a problem with water holding in the bottom of the rear doors. When I open the rear door after a few days of rain water comes out.

    high revs with twin 40s

    Tried 210 air correctors. That gives more 12.6:1 from around 3000rpm to 6600rpm wide open throttle, With 200 air it was more 12.3:1. Sounds more "neeeeeeeeeeeeeee" and less roaring "brummmmmmmmm". Is usually a good sign. Not very scientific either (I might have taken my foot off the loud pedal earlier and it was cooler weather) but the log sample for positive inlet manifold pressure duration lasts 3.725 seconds with 210 air and 12.6ish versus 3.784 seconds with 200 air and 12.3ish. Or 1.5% faster.

    Nah, think I'll wait for the SpeedyKnock.
  8. Rear black brakes discs are alot hotter than the front discs, is that normal? The new rear discs look super clean, the brakes see to have fulled removed black paint The new front discs dont look as clean, can still see the brake line marks.

    high revs with twin 40s

    just been reading a few forum threads , think the ks3 is fine for 99 octane. you thinking of buying one?

    high revs with twin 40s

    Does the ethanol prevent the knock or just hide the symptom? Pinking okay. Det bad.
  11. i think i got the cheaper module. there only seems to be one socket for audio lead that goes into the bosch sensor. i got ks3. £282 think the professional ones have that option. it's all a rip off. they use a basic chip, fancy casing and slap 320 pounds for the professional version. even mines a rip off probably. so i could have paid £40 more for head phone compatibility.

    so i paid £300 quid for something that struggles to read knock on higher octane lol. i use 99 octane unleaded. e85 is 109 octane?
  13. Diy knock detect http://www.bylund-automotive.com/store/knock_shield.html https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slh7DsR7S3U#action=share SpeedyKnock for Speeduino
  14. Can you record the sound that the Ks3 detects. Do a run, look at wav file in Audacity? Tweak it, repeat. See http://tunernerd.com/knock-monitor-pro/

    high revs with twin 40s

    For me induction noise and solid lifters. I just stick to safe limits (35 to 37 for bowl in piston on 95 unleaded) from 3000 up. https://www.firstfives.org/faq/timing/timing_for_modified_engines.PDF Tommo used a tube and ear defenders. It's quite a distinctive sound (mini-anvil ringing clatter) Does Phormula Ks3 have any instructions online?

    Distributor wiring

    Sorry may of worded it wrong, (more than likely it's me being retarded) it's this connection arrowed, to negative on coil.

    Distributor wiring

    It goes to the connection on the contact breaker the same as the wie that goes to the coil , it's to suppress the sparking across the points as they open

    What Did You Do To Your Polo Today?

    Fiddled with air correctors. Looked at the choke cable microswitch terminals, shrugged, refit the lower dash which has been in the rear footwell. Searched high and low for one screw that had gone missing.
  24. Evening all, I want to bench run my 1100 hb engine, but forgot where the wire from the condenser on vac adv dizzy goes, is it to negative? Thanks

    Forgot I had gone down to 180ish airs. Back to 200 and it's sweet and crisp at 13.3 minimum 12.3. Might even try 210, but it is cooler today.
