    1978 Derby GLS Garage Find

    Hello Peeps, I have been hiding around this forum for some years now! Not very active i am afraid 😞 I have had a number of Mk2 Polos, a red Coupe S, a white Classic and a 18K miles Breadvan the latter of which is still owned by a family friend and only used in fine weather!! However, a friend recently offered me first viewing on his grans old car. A one owner from new 1978 Derby GLS! It was too good an offer to turn down as these are hard to come by! However, I am now in unknown territory so may need some help along the way during the recommissioning! I am lookin
  2. A couple of years ago I bought a project. Its a mk1f with a Mk2f GT engine conversion. I say conversion, but barely anything was installed (in the engine bay and to the inside of the car lol), just boxes of engine and interior parts, and a hacked loom. Anyway, I’ve mechanically completed the engine install, with cam and crank timing aligned with markers, and the rotor arm pointing at the cylinder 1 marker on the dizzy. Next thing was the wiring. It has numerous cuts and joins. I’ve used the mk2f Haynes manual and made all the connections. I can get the car to turn over but not start. I ge
  3. I’m on rebuilding a mk1 895cc polo engine (1978) as a project and the engine wiring harness did not come with it so if anyone could tell me the bare minimum of wires I’ll need to get it running that would be great, I also have a few boxes of parts and trim that I won’t need if anyone is interested in buying some just let me know, thanks
  4. Hi all, Would anyone be able to help clarify the cylinder head part numbers for the mk1 HA engine (895cc) with water heated manifolds? Mine's a '78 with part number 052 103 373C, but I'm being offered a one with part number 052 103 373A. Is there a significant differences between these heads? I gather that most of the early heads are all the same (camshafts aside), but I'm being told the inlet valve diameter for 052 103 373A is 34mm whereas my current one is 32mm. Does anyone know if the one I'm being offered is suitable? Daniel

  6. I have a 1977 Derby 1.3 that drives just fine but needs some rust and technical repair. Body parts seem to be very rare if not impossible to find. Have most of it sorted out, but more parts and more power would be nice. Having owned a G40 before, I miss that engine... Now... I have been offered a cirka 1993 Polo G40 with a turbo, aftermarket subframe, coilovers +++ for a sensible amount of money. How much of the 86c parts will fit my MK1 Derby? Will the subframe + motor, suspension and brakes be bolt on? How about the doors..? Is there a cross reference list available s

    1977 Mk1 Polo Manila

    Start of another car. Picked up this car recently which is in need of a bit of work to put it mildly plus in need of a lot of new parts. 1977 Polo L in Manilla Green with Tobacco interior. Here's what I'm starting with, and the start of my parts hunt... Some panels first; a sill, the floors both sides, tunnel patch, rear valance, patch in the spare wheel well and back end of the rear wheel arches... Picked up something to help when I get round to the mechanics, an August 1977 dealer workshop manual in English, lovely thing especiall
  8. Hello, I've got a three part question for which I cannot find an answer for the life of it. My car is a MK2F Polo. 1. Can anyone get a bit more specific on what kind of carriers I need from the Audi 80 from 1985 for the MK2 GTI vented brake upgrade? I've found two Audi 80s, from that time. Contacted one of them, he said he has them, but for solid brake disc setup - does it make a difference? 2. Would Golf MK1 shocks fit front and back on my car? Has anyone tried it? I read somewhere that they are bigger and shorter, but fronts should fit except that the diameter fo
  9. Hello you Guys, I am working on a motor conversion. A 1.6 AEE engine in my RHD polo MK1. it is the only RHD polo in the Netherlands. There is no brake booster in the polo. I would like to build in 1. I think there is too little space to build in a brake booster. Are there any members who have built a 1.6 (16V) engine in a 86(c) in combination with a brake booster. or I just do not have to whine and kick harder on the pedal. the last option is to convert the polo to LHD. Although I would find it a shame, it is still quite unique a RHD polo in the Netherlands.
  10. Hi guys sorry if this is in the wrong place! But I'm in desperate need of some lowering top caps for my mk2f I've already lowered it with 80mm springs and new lowering shocks but I need it a bit lower on the front. If anybody has any for sale, that would be awesome! Cheers
  11. hi all, I've recently picked up a 77 mk1 and the drive back at 2 am on the m6 with no street lighting and inches away from temporary crash barriers was airy to say the least, according to manual, h/lamp bulbs are 40/45w, can I just do a straight swop and fit uprated h4 60/55w bulbs or is there more to it. cheers..
  12. When the red battery light comes on - alternator is on way out, how many miles have you managed to drive?
  13. Hello everyone, I'm wondering if some one could give me some info on this engine? the 1.1 engine, first off what cars did this come in? 2: whats the piston size? 3: whats the piston stroke? 4:what materials is it made from? (block and head) 5: engine code? 6: will the polo gt head bolt straight on? 7: do the g40 rods fit with the standard crank off the 1043cc? 8: what bits make the engine a 1100 rather than the 1.0 (1043)? Thanks in advance!
