  3. 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?
  4. I got it in my head that I need to check the gearbox oil. I know that the box is getting tired, but I thought it might be a sensible thing to do. Looking at haynes, there is not a lot of information on how to do this. Is this even a sensible thing to do? I've noticed that there's a plastic plug that is very loosely covering a hole. It's on the top-front of the gearbox/clutch housing. What is this for? https://imgur.com/a/r8ExSnc
  5. Hi guys, I picked up a Mk2 breadvan the other day. From what i gather from the guy I bought it off it'd been off the road for a little bit. I looked underneath today and there was a little puddle and from what I can see and have researched it is the O-ring on the thermostat housing that is coming from the engine. I've found two different size O-rings on parts websites but neither say which size fits the one I want. One has an inner diameter of 43mm and a thickness of 3mm, the other is an inner diameter of 50mm and a thickness of 4mm. I'd rather not take her apart to find out because the leak isn't that bad right now so if anybody knows what size I'm looking for that would be great. I've attached an image of the system, the blue circle is where its leaking from. And if anyone knows how difficult it is to do this that would be great too. Or even if anybody reckons I'm completely off with what's wrong that would be great too. Thanks, Dan

    83 black breadvan

    Just bought my second mk2 after about 4 years of wishing I never got rid of my first one. She is in a right state as fuel filler neck, wheel arch, fuel filler flap and battery tray is rotten. There’s general surface on near all panels where paint has been damaged. And one half of the car is rattle canned. As far as I can remember the polo was taken off the road in 1998 to be used as a donor car. So pretty happy to do the work to get her back on the road. If anyone else has a black mk2. I’d love to see it as I’m thinking of respraying it back to gloss black.
  7. Hi guys Can anyone tell me where I'd find the plug connection for the inlet hedgehog? It's not plugged in the wire is just sat there. I'm trying to sort out my cold start issues and saw this, also need to check if the choke is working and find out how to adjust/fix it. Just replaced carb flange so hopefully no more vacuum leaks Thanks in advance
  8. I just started noticing on my '84 breadvan that it has some negative camber at the rears. It's more obvious now I have gone back to original width tyres. Was this factory standard? Wear? Anything else?

    First Project Car

    Consider this my build thread, as the title suggests this is my first project car! I never really intended to own a polo as I was initially planning to buy another golf, but I fell in love with this little coupe after a run around the block in it. Here are a few pics of what I am starting with!
  10. So I desperately need someone with knowledge on the pierburg choke set up to help me out. The choke isn't working at all, the valve stays fully open hot or cold. I've taken the housing off the sode and checked the bimetallic strip is connected etc. Twisting/adjusting the housing makes no difference. I think my fault is with the mechanism at the bottom of the levers for the choke flap. There's one pivot that controls the rod from the strip going to the flap then there's a second with notches - I don't think this is doing it's job because it won't move to let the choke be on in the first place, it's not seized but I don't think it's right. Can anyone with good knowledge of these carbs please get in touch, would be hugely appreciated! Thanks
  11. Hi guys, Tearing my hair out with my 1.0 1990 mk2 breadvan, HZ engine code When I first purchased it it needed some TLC and had new Filters, fuel tank, fuel pump, distributor rotor arm ht leads battery And brakes After almost a year it started cutting out when stopping at a junction or heavy braking. I got fed up with it and left it on the drive way and bought a new car. Fast forward a couple of years years and I want to restore it. Mostly to learn, possibly to sell after not quite sure yet. However, on trying to start the engine with new fuel it refused. Since then I have changed leads plugs ignition coil carburettor flange The distributor and rotor arm still look ok. I have 12v at ignition coil with ignition turned on and if I pour petrol/spray carb cleaner into carb it will start for a few seconds then die out. Whilst the carb was off I tried my best to clean it without doing a full service. I have also blown through the needles with a compressor. has anyone got any ideas what the issue could be? Im getting close to torching it 🔥😡 many thanks in advance if you can can help diagnose my problem. ☺️
  12. My '84 breadvan has a working speedo, but it is way too positive. I don't know whether these cars had a standard deviation like modern cars, but at 100 kp/h (GPS) the speedo is reading 115 kp/h. What could be the cause? just a worn cable?

    1983 coupe build thread.

    Hi guys New member here! Thought I'd start a build thread for my mk2 coupe. I originally bought this car when I was 16, i got it up to a driveable standard and used it for 6 months or so after I passed my test, I then sold it on and regretted it ever since! After many years (almost 11) I finally saw it up for sale so I bought it back and after a very eventful trip home (and a debut on traffic cops) I started stripping it down for rebuild. Firstly I started on the engine, I tried turning it over by hand and it was having none of it so I pulled the head and was greeted by this very unfortunate sight So I cleaned it all out and started honing the cylinders only to find this
  14. What I mean is: do original rims of a MK2f fit on a MK2? Are the mounting points the same?
  15. Does anyone know how this weber 32 TLM is supposed to be connected to the choke cable?

    mk2 breadvan Paula the Polo

    Last October I bought this red beauty for 750 euro. A pretty good value imo, there is no serious rust on any structural parts. The ususal rust at the edge of the front-window and some below the rear bumper are the most severe cases of rust. The garage I bought it from put new wider but smaller wheels on it, so the car is already faster on the speedo : ) My plan is to take "Paula" for a roadtrip from Holland through scandinavia this summer. Before that can happen it does need some work on the engine though, I already posted on this forum about throttle hesitation. The fuel filter seemed to be the quick fix however the carb probably has a leak somewhere, the hesisation is still there. This is my first project car, so feel free to give me tips/advise! Last day of November Paula her home for the winter
  17. Hi, I am after a back left wheel arch trim for a 1987 polo saloon. Let me know if you have one to sell. Thanks, C
  18. Hi club polo, Was looking forward to starting my polo build but I have found difficulty in finding repair panels online. I have a mk2 coupe s The only panel I can find is the sill. I need also the rear quarter around the filler cap, the right side wheel arch. Does anyone know where I can find these panels? If not are there any panels known from other cars that would be a good starting point to adapt and fit?
  19. Hi new here. Actually I used this forum to find my polo back in about 2009! I have a 1990 mk2 polo coupe s It's been great fun to own over the years😁 and on three occasions when I had no use or no money to run a car I lent it to mates to keep it and them on the road. It had damage when I bought it but it's gradually been getting worse over the years. Being t-boned and a couple of bonnet incidents etc. 🙄 I haven't paid much attention to the the bodywork and just enjoyed driving a ratty polo and the mechanics along the way. The biggest jobs so far being head gasket and bike carbs. So now it's time for me to finally learn something about bodywork and get it back on the road after nearly two years without mot due to rust. The problem appears to have started at the filler and has affected the rear quarter wheel arch and sill. The plastic trim had kept it hidden for a while. So I thought club polo would be a good place to start the project maybe I can pick up a few tips, parts and help others with the same problem. New to using forums so I'm thinking now maybe starting a build thread is of most value?
  20. Keep seeing you in Hamilton around the Burnbank area and wondered if you were on here? Sounds nice and makes me wish i keep my old loon.

    Keep standard or cafe racer !?

    Hi, i'm a new user in the west mids, Brought this beast in nov and have done some bits, already has a webber 32/34 (which still squeals even after a rebuild), but the time has come to make my mind up, make it a clean standard example or lower it, get some baby G60s etc just keep flip flopping tho...don't want to ruin whats already survived for 30 odd years any suggestions ?
  22. Does anybody know whether the following steering wheel from an '86 polo is interchangaeble with the steering wheel on my '84 breadvan? The wheel I have in my car is this one: I saw somebody mention a change in the steering column around 1986. Not near my car right now to check it though
  23. On youtube there are multiple people showing how to clean your engine bay with a pressure washer, covering up only certain parts like the alternator. Would this be an idea for cleaning the engine bay of my '84 mk2 breadvan? There are so many fragile electrical cables☠️

    Project Mini golf

    Now then Recently went in with a few mates to buy a breddy that had been stood a few year purely to make a bit of cash for my MK2 golf (hence the title, the missus thinks it's funny) Stored it on my drive, I fell arse over heel and ended up buying them out of it. So shes an 89 breddy, in white. No rot, no nastyness and a CBR powered Afh. I must add at this point that I know nothing of this car, I bought it unseen the mates who went to get it were clueless so I don't know when it was last ran/drove all I know is the last mot expired 2011 and it must have been garaged because it's in incredible shape. So before I even turned her over I pulled the carbs off, pulled the plugs, little bit of derv down the bores and let it sit over night. That night had a look inside the carbs(CBR f2) and decided that they needed rebuilt as most of the o rings were perished along with lots of seized brass. Main jets disintegrated on removal too. So if anyone wants some junk cbr f2 carbs I'm your man. Next day, turned her over by hand a few times felt good so dropped the oil, changed a few filters (thank God euros is still open) and did a bit of general poking /inspecting. turned my attention to the brakes, surprisingly okay no locking, moving freely and looking in decent shape. Ordered new carbs, new cables and a few other goodies to try and get it up and running at the weekend. Should be a laugh. If anyone knows the previous owner I'd love a chat and I look forward to having a carb'd 16v in my life again. Cheers
  25. So Me and a few mates chipped in to buy a car to break for parts between our various projects. I hadn't seen this car just fronted a few hundred to make a bit of money back. Ended up being stored on my drive, I fell arse over heel for it and bought them all out. It's a 1.4 16v on bike carbs, currently doesn't run because of the carbs so I'll be sorting those out in the coming weeks. It's got a club polo sticker so I assume the previous owner is on here and I'd like a chat to see what the crack is. Anyway Here it is (Excuse the drive, we only properly moved in a few week ago)
