  1. 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! The

  3. Problems with the servo vacuum hose tend to be at the junctions of the hard plastic pipe, especially either side of the non-return valve:

  4. 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 Startr

  5. 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....

  6. When I first got the golf on the road after being in a barn for 15 years I had the same problem. Every now and then it would splutter and die. pulling the feed pipe to the fuel pump and blowing down it would sort it for a week or so until I changed all the fuel lines!

  7. I got one for my mk2 of these guys at the start of the year, probably the very same make you'd get of Heritage but substantially cheaper, with Christmas/New Year holidays it took around two weeks to arrive. Filler neck isn't perfect, but none of the repro tanks will be, it was far better than the last repro one that was fitted to mine.

  8. Just got home and found the VW invoice for the new temp sensor VW supplied. Part No. 6U0-919-501-B (Sensor) & N-903-168-01 (O-Ring). Cost £39.05+VAT directly from the parts department at the local VW main dealer.

  9. 3 seperate coats..only mix what you need as it will go off make sure you sand off all the cheap paint they put on it so it can stick to bare steel

  10. Blow compressed air down the fuel lines (feed and return) to send any rusty sludge towards those magnets. You might need to clean carb of ethanol induced crusting in the float bowl. I'm now using Startron but Fuelfit would do the same job to stop water absorption. https://www.thedrive.com/reviews/28046/best-fuel-stabilizers

  11. any epoxy primer will do well...scuff off all the cheap paint that it comes with on the neck area so it sticks agree try ebay germany...

  12. Yep, Epoxymastic or POR15 on outside. Especially on the neck. Reapply after fitting if you can get access since it might get scratched. Surely German eBay.de will be cheaper than VWHeritage.
