Right, so I'm mid way through my Mk2 breadys engine conversion, it is my first engine conversion so its took some figuring out so far, but I'm nearly ready for engine in except for a couple of little bumps in the road. So to start off with I've got APQ 1.4 8v apq engine and DOW 5 speed box to go with it, and I'm swapping it for my old 1litre 4speed, so far everything fits or transfers across seen as the engines are nearly identical, I'm ditching the injection system and running it with the original 1 litre head and a 1300 golf carb, everything fits nicely and that bits all sorted, the problems are, 1. Main coolant pipe from the water pump and 2. Top gearbox mount and driveshafts 1. The original coolant pipe doesn't fit, so I have to get the 1.4 pipe, but from looking into it, the old pipe has three ports on it, 2 of which go straight to the carb to control the choke I believe, and the other heads straight to the header tank, whilst the 1.4 pipe only has one port, that goes to the heater system, so how can I get around the pipes to the carb, a friend of mine has suggested that I get the new pipe and run the carb on Manuel choke, but that obviously means doing some modification to the carb, but I dont really know where to start on that haha 2. Top gearbox mount is rather different, the original has 3 studs on top to bolt the mount onto, where as the 6n mount for the gearbox mounts onto the car in a completely different place, and also, will the drive shafts be long enough and actually fit, I'm Sure someone who's done a 5 speed conversion can help with this. any help given will be much appreciated
Hi, I am new here and was wondering if anyone has fitted the 1.4 tdi engine to a petrol car. I was wondering about how much wiring differences there is for the diesel glowplugs, relay, etc. And if all that comes through with the engine loom and hopefully into a standard wiring set up in the car which caters for all 6N2s or are they fuel specific main car interior looms? Both cars are "S" model 5 doors, I was thinking to change fuel tank, filler hose and even lines, etc. I think I have to probably change the subframes too. Basically what I am asking is has anyone done this before, and do i have to strip both cars down to near enough bare shells to complete this? I already own both cars, and know it would be cheaper to buy another 6n2 tdi, and I have spoken to DVLA who assured me the completed car will be 30pa road tax if i get it emission tested and it is still the same as in original tdi. Many thanks for any advice that saves me bareshelling the pair of them needlessly lol Andy
hi, i have bought a polo 6n that has a later 1.4 8v engine but is not running right. i have tried looking at the timing as the previous person has stated it hasn't run right since his friend 'a vw specialist' changed the timing belt. there is no cover on the timing belt and no back cover, now i can only see online to time these engines you need the back plate to time the cam shaft to. is there any other way i can time this engine? thanks
Hi all! Pretty new here and looking for some information before I get to work! I have a 1999 vw polo 6n 1.4cl 8v automatic (no haters) I'm going to do a cbr600 bike carb conversation but I'm curious as to wether this is going to work with an automatic??? My main concern being the gears, due to it being automatic it has kick down and wondering if this is going to course any trouble? Not sure wether it's a complete different thing or not, but when kick down is activated is it to do with the acceleration cable system or through a button near the pedal? Any help would be appreciated guys Thanks ?
