  1. Ive got a mk2 1.3 1990 polo In the 6 months of ownership used daily and never had a problem before now, at the start of lockdown she was sat on the drive for 4-5 weeks (un started) while i sorted some rust on the F valence + painted the engine bay, after that on the first drive she just cut out twice but started again, the next day i drove about 11 miles same thing happened at the start of the drive, on the way back (halfway up a hill ! ) she died, this time would only restart if left for 5 and would then die after a minute ( which is still where i am at now ) oddly when running she is perfectly normal.... since i have rebuilt the carb 2 times (Webber 32/34 DMTR) replaced the pump diaphragm on the carb, cleared the fuel lines and replaced the filter plenty of fuel is getting to carb now for sure !, jets all clear and correct, i originally assumed it was fuel/carb related as before it died a few time you could keep it alive for a few seconds longer with the choke fully engaged... after another fiddle today with no success i am truly baffled and starting to get pi$%ed off with it, any suggestions would be very very welcome George
  2. Hi looking for a bike carb setup or a replacement carb for my 82 mk2 polo 1.1 engine code HB. Solex is dead
  3. Hello just wondering if anyone can help, i have got a 1989 mk2 polo coupe S, I recently did an engine swap for a mk1 golf 1.3 on suzuki bike carbs. The only issue i am having is getting the original polo ignition loom to work with the mk1 golf distributor as my polo was originally electronic ignition and had a 3 prong plug where as the golf distributor is points and condenser with just a single plug (shown in picture) i have tried swapping the distributor but it does not fit and i am not able to swap the plug over on the distributor housing. Just wondering if anyone had a solution to my problem👍🏼 Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi All, Relatively new to this forum, but I am looking for any additional information to resolve the black smoke issue I currently have with my 1982 mk2 Polo Breadvan 1.0 litre (Weber 32 IBF carburetor). Over the past year the car has undergone a major body restoration which was finished approximately November 2018, but with the cold weather now set the car was placed in storage for almost 5 months. Spring 2019 the car was removed from storage but had developed several starting issues which have since been resolved i.e. new fuel, fuel pump, spark plugs, fuel lines, starter motor and distributor. The car then ran well for about 2 weeks, then became really lumpy at idle and pretty much undriveable. The car has recently passed its MOT, which during the test the technician tweaked the carburetor to bring its idle speed back to an acceptable level however this meant the car would run very lumpy at higher revs and stall when they were brought back down. We have since refurbished the carburetor along with various other jobs, but the car now plumes out black smoke when cold and when under load when warm. Ignoring the smoke, the car idles and runs well but there is obviously an underlying issue. Initially over-fueling was my thoughts, but we have now reset the carburetor several times but with the same result. The mixture screw is approximately 1.5 turns out and the car is no longer lumpy when idling. The only remaining jobs I need to complete are an oil/filter change and the rubber mount underneath the carburetor. Holding down the carburetor to seal any voids in the mount does not improve the smoke or affect the idle speed. I have searched the forum and found a few ideas from different posts and believe we have exhausted most ideas; so we are looking for any further ideas before we strip the internals and look for any wear inside the block. Below is a summary of the what we have examined: · Filters – both air and fuel filters have been replaced despite showing no signs of dirt or degradation. · Fuel lines – cleaned and replaced if necessary. · Fuel pump – replaced. · Spark plugs – replaced and cleaned several times in the past few weeks. · Fuel – tank emptied, re-filled with fuel cleaner additive. · Distributor cap – replaced with new points. · Earth straps – both replaced. · Weber 32 IBF carburetor – jets and body cleaned with car cleaner, serviced with genuine Weber kit i.e. new gaskets, washers, o-rings, float needle/seat, solenoid and diaphragm. Float height has been confirmed as correct and all flow tubes are clear. · Carburetor rubber mount – looks OK but is being replaced in the next few days. · Oil cleaner (Wynnes smoke clear) additive. · Vacuum lines have been checked. · Thermostat will be replaced in the next few days. · Oil will be replaced this weekend. Any further ideas would be greatly appreciated. I can add photographs of the engine if required. Many Thanks

  7. I am currently in the process of rebuilding a small block 1.3, and am having trouble finding anywhere to buy the dome shaped breather that presses into the side of the block. I looked on vwheritage and ebay but had no luck. Does anyone have any idea where I might find one? Thanks, Jordan

    ARB bolts

    I have struggled for a few hours, without luck, to get the bolts in that hold the stage 2 subframe to the MAXRPM ARB blocks and bodywork. I have put the ARB into the lower control arms first but not all the way in and loosened the ARB bracket on the offside front wing. Without the ARB blocks, I can just about get the bolts started but with the ARB blocks, it's impossible. I have no evidence that the car has been in a major accident and the engine is not in the car. The LCAs have nylon bushes in it which allows little flexibility. Possibly if I tap the ARB forwards, I may get the bolts closer. So now I am considering using hydraulic jacks to push the subframe forwards to get the bolts closer. Anyone with advice that has had similar issues I would gladly receive replies.
  9. Hi peeps got a question could be a silly one but here goes, so I have a 1990 Vw Mk2 polo Saloon CL with the normal circular headlight grill, my question is would the Mk1 polo derby Grill with the square headlights fit my Mk2 loon? What would be the ins and outs? Cheers.
  10. Is there a lower temperature thermostat available? After hours of on line searching, I found that there is a Meyle G40/60 that is out of stock on chargeddubbs but with no idea what it's opening temperature is. Also I found 056 121 113d which is supposed to be a lower temperature but again no confirmation of the opening temperature. I have been told the stock one opens at 75C. Is this correct? Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Hi, I have a mk2 polo project, I have cleaned and checked the spark plugs, cleaned some of the carb jets but when I try to lift the clutch and move it, it dies, does any one have any ideas what to check or do next? I want to put some fresh fuel in aswell , thanks in advance
  12. I am looking a putting a new clutch in my 84 1.0 polo breadvan and wanted to know if I could change the gearbox to a 5 speed from a 1300 breadvan anyone know thanks
  13. Hi All, Before I go ahead and buy one.... thought I'd ask the question first. I have just fitted my GRP wings and noticed the Front Valance has had a small knock (Dented Corner) Looks like someone has tried to straighten but doesn't line up with wings. I would like to replace the whole panel but what is it like fitting a Lower front Valance? Could I use a bolt on technique or would it need to be spot welded? any info greatly needed and with thanks.
  14. I am currently doing a carb conversion on my 1.3 polo switching from the pierburg to a weber dmtl, i was wondering what accelerator cable would fit
