Hi Gents, I have a few questions below, first some background. I have a 1991 Polo Mk2F with AAU engine, 126k mi, and it's been off the road for 5 years. Decided to get it back on the road so have repaired some mice-chewed indicator and heater-blower wires under the dash (I now own a cat!). Checked all fluids OK and fired her up, started first time :-), getting up to temp she smells a bit rich, but I've only driven modern cars recently so maybe had forgotten how older cars smell.

I would be grateful of any advice reference fitting an 8P gearbox onto a 94 1.0 AAU bready.

After having my driving licence for about 14 years, I thought it was maybe time to get around to buying a car. Registered in mid '94 it must be one of the last Mk2s.
