  1. Hey polo boffins!!! Hope you can help, I have a 1981 mk2 polo with a1.3 hk engine in, recently took the head off as suspected head gasket had gone and it had! Well it’s off to get the head skimmed but in the mean time I found piston4 to have some damage so set about looking for a piston but have been struggling to find one. however I have bought a 1.3 aav engine and was hoping to either use that whole bottom end or remove a piston to put in my HK bottom end, now is this an option? Or am I wasting my time with the aav engine? ive attached a couple photos of the suspect pist
  2. I was cleaning up the throttle body ahead of the MOT and noticed that the stop screw for the throttle cable pull (pictured) never actually comes in contact with the plate that meets it. I assume its there to act as an adjustment for where the throttle would stop - wouldn't this count as an idle throttle adjustment? The engine rattles along at 800rpm at idle so I assume nothing is out of the ordinary here, but what is it actually supposed to be for?
  3. I've got a 93 1.3 aav spi genesis which is currently fitted with a 1.8 golf throttle body (with the 1.3 injector)and GT cam. Its a nippy thing and is better than standard, but I used to have a 1990 1.3 NZ engine with the MPI setup on it, and even in standard form I seem to recall the NZ feeling pokier. Reading about, the MPI setup off a NZ coupled with a GT cam seems to provide good results, but woult there be any benefit over my current setup? I kept the NZ engine with all its MPI setup, coil, ecu, and ecu loom and intended to swap the inlet manifold etc across. Looking at the loo
  4. Hey all, After replacing the fuel filter on my '93 MK2f I noticed a fuelly smell stopping at lights recently. When I got back home i saw it was dripping petrol pretty heavily from the outlet end of the fuel filter. I popped a new, wider clamp on the junction but it looks like the old hose is splitting so there is now a delicate balance between enough clamping pressure to seal the leak without crushing the hose too much and propagating the crack further. I've got it to drip only occasionally but obviously this needs sorting asap. Looking at the parts list: https://v
  5. Im looking at doing ITBs on my 1.3 AAV because it's gutless at the moment just wondering what throttle bodies are the best to go for? Iv seen some GSXR R7 600 ones, will they be the right size to run my engine and what else will I need with them? Any information will help really
  6. Hi everyone, Pleased to be here and this is my first post, so "hi"! I joined today as I bought a 91 Polo Breadvan with some issues. It was very inexpensive (£80 with 6 months MOT) and I fancy trying to do the work myself. I also own a 73 Beetle that is on the road (tucked up in the garage for winter) and also a rolling resto. I wondered if anyone has a step-by-step guide to changing the head gasket on a AAV engine? Or can point me in the right direction for one? (no Haynes manual advice please) Pictures would be really helpful too. Than
