  2. 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..

    I have a 2004 Polo 1.2 8v for sale. Tjhis is for SPARES or REPAIR as it has a fault. MOT till September though. The car us a 3 door 3 owner car with 91300 miles from new with history and invoices to back that up. The car has developed a fault in the last few weeks during lockdown. 1) THE EPC light is on - I have checked the brake light switch and called the breakdown service out. They think its electrical and he pulled out fuel sensor and one wire looks cut. 2) Engine management light also came one - again the breakdown guy said it could be coil pack or lack of compression Hence the car is for sale as spares or repair. I could scapt it, but aside these faults its a tidy little car which has been looked after and in my view is in great condition for age. Its located in Harrow and can't be driven as its in limp mode. I was looking for £200, I have been offered £125 as scrap so far and a lot more as part exchange but I am never sure if that's a genuine deal. It would be a shame to scrap it. Any questions or if you want more pictures please let me know. Thanks

  10. Hi, I'm sorry to bump this, but... How do you use a vacuum gauge to tune the carb?

    Ok since my last post things have mostly been getting rid of the crumbly and welding the good.... ... floors, valance, rear wings... ... inner wings... ...and more... ...unsurprisingly front panel... ...NOS front panel and front wings. So after all that I needed a bling pick-me-up so got the brakes refurbed... ...and of course, especially during lockdown, I've been buying more parts! Metalwork almost done ready for the pre-body strip down, now if I could only leave the house....

    14” P Slots on a MK2 Breadvan

    Thanks Qwerty, I think this is the route I’m going to take. Appreciate the reply.
  15. Qwerty

    Will ET22 BBS fit a breadvan ?

    Tyre choice will make a big difference. However even with something like a 165/55 will probably require slight arch work.
  16. 165/55's work well. My brother runs the same setup on his mk2.

    Bosch S9054 (1457429054) Air Filter That's the only one I can see there and seems to be the bigger type when I checked. I'm in no mad rush if not from GSF as I was just wanting to add on to an order, I'll get it sorted. Has anyone used the home delivery with GSF? It says £25 and over it's free, the order I made was £20 but it said qualified for free delivery, although when I went to pay they were adding £19.95 for delivery!!!

    Cheers, I was almost sure it was the smaller one, was ordering a few bits from GSF and was going to add this on, so I'm right thinking it's GSF part no 122VG0150 Out of stock as you say though so I'll try one of the other links cheers.

    Weber Woes - DMTL on Mk2

    I've reconnected the thing with the return on top, the intake in the middle, and the line out to the carb on the bottom. It seems to have helped a bit, but still having problems as soon as the throttle opens into the second stage

    Do you have an OEM-number on it? That could get you the correct diagram

    Weber Woes - DMTL on Mk2

    I found a picture of the one I'm using. sadly, it has no markings. The diagrams I'm seeing online have conflicting information on how these things work. Some are saying that the return should be the top?

    Weber Woes - DMTL on Mk2

    Does the swirl pot look something like this? This an aftermarket version of a golf mk2 swirl pot. This brand was smart enough to engrave the connections. It applies to the original swirl pot as well I believe.

  25. Hi, I've been struggling with my Weber carb for a while now, and I'm getting a bit bored of it. I have a DMTL 32/34 on a Mk2 Polo 2G engine, which is stock. Jetted as (from left to right, as seen from the front of the car, looking towards the back, with the throttle cable on the left): 70 | 185 - F30 - 120 | 155 - F22 - 100 | 45 Problems: All of these are on a hot engine with no choke. At Idle: No idle unless the mixture screw is 2.5 turns out. It's a little unstable but it's not obviously hunting (could be normal?) Coming off idle: Poor throttle response - 0.5 second delay, followed by a noticable lurch forward. Throttle feels like an on-off switch in low gears. Slowly opening to full throttle: Loss of power as second stage opens up, but no obvious misfire. Quickly opening to full throttle: Car hesitates, then lurches forward. I have tried: Searching for vacuum leaks. I have been spraying carb cleaner at the base of the carb, and at the hose connections. Nothing obvious. Timing. Ignition timing has been set and checked, with the vac advance unplugged and capped off. Twiddling the idle mixture screw. Highest idle speed is about 2.5-3 turns out. Cleaning. I have had the entire carb apart and thoroughly sprayed everything with carb cleaner. Float valve works. No obvious blockages. Mixture screw is air tight. Accelerator pump seems to work correctly and doesn't leak. Questions... At what point am I looking at jetting issues rather than something else? I have the Pierburg's old swirl pot (?) connected up and cable tied in place. So far I have the fuel going in at the top, the return in the middle, and the line off to the carb at the bottom. What's the proper way to connect it up?
