  1. Engine struggled to start third time round. After rebuild, with news cams, pistons, rings etc engine ran for ten minutes then there was a oil leak. two weeks later oil leak sorted, started engine and ran at 2000rpm for another ten minutes stopped engine but this time around tried to turn it over straight away and the battery could not turn the engine over. felt like a dead battery. the mechanic said because the engine is now hot the compression will be higher and the battery is struggling. stopped the engine as while the radiator fan kicked in. i have converted the engine from 1.4 to a 1.6 afh conversion. Does this mean I now need a stronger battery? The battery for the 1.4 should be 440ca, 50ah. The battery for the 1.6 should be 550ca, 60ah. but ive seen people using a 45ah in thier 1.6's infact some websites sell 40ah for the 1.6. i measured the battery with a multimeter and it read 12.2V when engine switched off. p.s new battery & new alternator
  2. Hi I've got an avy and an afh engine. I'm doing a bit of a hybrid. But looking today and the bolt on breather on the block is really unsightly. Is there a blank or an adapter to put a little filter instead. Any ideas
  3. POLO 6N AFH 1997 I purchased a genuine elring seal: 028103171B I purchased also a gasket: 026103181B I did not use the gasket because it did not fit so i thought because the crank seal had a rubber lip on the inside housing, that they might have updated the design therefore not needing the gasket. I got the part numbers from: https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1998-158/1/103-103005/#15 I also noticed that the actual seal that goes around the crankshaft was in two parts. a thin back seal and a front thin seal. Not quite sure how you install that. Anyway got a pretty big oil leak. Pictures below to show what i mean about the inner rubber lip on the housing.
  4. new schrick camshafts making ticking noise? having to contend with all the smoke coming out of the back, fuel ratio not to bad for a first start got it up to 2000 rpm and kept it there 2 minutes then switched it off as the ticking noise from the cams increases with rpm and somethings not right. are new cams supposed to make a noise until they have been run in? im in the garage to there is echo but still i wanted a super quite drive train. new valves, guides, cotters, hyrdaulic lifter rockets and cams. p.s ticking noise is tapping noise.
  5. loads of parts available 07816934375 for details
  6. theres 12v feed to coil pack when ignition is turned on, but when cranking it drops to 0v so i dont get a spark i used to have it plugged in underthe steering wheel fuses, can remember which one. polo 6n afh which you reckon i should use. megajolr edis 4 cheers

    Hello, New price - prices to sell. I will do copy/paste from this add : mobile.de add The car is great , but I have almost no time for it and other projects on my head. I need the space. The car has new timing belt,new battery, new clutch and new fluids. It participated in our local VW Fest 2018 and draws a lot of attention. When I drive it people notice it. The list of modification is very long, the car was built for the purpose of track day use, but is not stripped out and is 100% streetable. It is not 100% ready, it needs sway bar install and fixing of small things. I am not having enough time , actually I am having almost none for it so that is why it is for sale. I am confident to say that such Polo does not exist anywhere in the world, so here is its specs: - ABU engine block with documents - AFH head and pistons, CR ~11,5:1 - G40 gearbox plus 2 more gearboxes in perfect condition that go with the car ( have shorter gear ratios) - 4 carburators from Honda CBR900RR, jetted main jets and sealed air jet. - Custom airbox and custom made and calculated length of intake manifold - Custom 4-2-1 stainless steel exhaust manifold and SS exhaust system - all calculated for particular engine - Custom made suspension with coil overs, A-shaped LCAs' adjustable in all angles - Custom made frame to which the A-shaped LCAs' connect - Engine and transmission rest on stock 3 pieces engine mounts, plus added 4-th infront - Mega Squirt 2 - controls ignition when using petrol and carburators, constrols LPG injectors and ignition when LPG is used - LPG system spraying after carbs, tank in place of spare tyre - Deep Recaro front seats from 20th anniversary Golf MK.3 with reworked stock mounts to fit the Polo ( narrower) - 5x100mm conversion with 15 inch Audi A3 light rims ( 5,5 kgs/ each) - 1 inch brake master cylinder with 4 wheel disk brakes - 256mm vented fronts with ~235mm solid from Polo 9N on the back - Factory GT body with black roof vinyl in great shape, OE paint - Car puts down 115 wheel horse power, the attached graph is without the airbox and without the Mega Squirt - I used to run it on vacuum distributor without any electronics(can be returned in that configuration) - Prepared stock AFH intake manifold with BMW 2.0 throttle body and 190cc injectors - if decided to return to single throttle body

    Anyone got a AFH engine without gearbox but will take wiring loom if it has one, im not desperate for one and doesn't matter if it needs rebuilding or anything like that, Not to far from Leicester if possible



  9. gearbox is in and connected the selector to the gearbox. first of all bolt keeps turning , not sure how tight it is supposed to be. secondly after tightning it, pressed clutch pedal to test out the gears and every gear is going in very sluggish and very difficult. it feels very ugly like if it is being forced. not how it used to be. they would go in like a normal car should lol. the oil level is very low but as im not driving the car yet should that have any effect on the gear selection smoothness or have i cocked up the selector to gearbox.
  10. can someone please give me the torque setting to the water pump and the cam belt idle roller if they have. thank you.
  11. Model: 1992 Polo CL Coupe Engine: 1390cc AFH on standard 6n injection Suspension: TBC Brakes: Standard Wheels and Tyres: BMW E30 Bottle Tops 14 x 6 ET35 Exterior Styling: Standard, rusty, bit of a state Interior Styling: Corrado seats, GT clocks To Do List: Too much to list... Better late than never for a build thread I suppose. I bought this Polo at the Polo Social 2017. Within 5 minutes of being on site at the Social it was affectionately nicknamed "The White Shed of Excellence" thanks to @jonPDpolo. The reasons for which I'll not go into, if you know...you know. The thing was a state, had been sitting for a while since the previous owner had moved abroad. However it had been converted a few years ago to an AFH and had been looked after at some point. So as a result it drove back to the camp site and then back home to Scotland the next day pretty much flawlessly. This is how I picked it up. Unfortunately lost the 'L' from this windscreen sticker Got it home and desperately had to do something to it right away. First thing I thought of was swapping the old clocks out for a set with a rev counter. A few days later it went up to visit the 'Death Van' which was sitting up at my mates house. We agreed on a deal for him to buy the van off me so long as I could take "a few" parts off the car... I may have taken a little bit more than I made out... Anyway the front end of the car went from this. To this. Much better I thought. Over the next few weeks when time allowed it was just a case of cleaning things up when I could. Starting with the state of the engine bay. I do love the look of an AFH in these. Also sorted something that had been annoying me from a safety point of view. The Corrado seats have a really tall seatbelt clip. Me being a skinny chap meant the lap belt didn't actually contact me at all. Just went over the seat and flopped about. So to try and avoid submarining in the event of an accident I swapped the Corrado seatbelt clip for one off a G40 seat. Success, the lap belt now contacts me as it should with a bit of room in the belt to spare before the stopping pin thing. Onto a cosmetic annoyance was the colour coded bumpers. As I'd changed the front for a none colour coded item I set about changing the rear. The best one I had in my collection was a 'race spec' one that had been drilled a bit Looks better than the colour coded one anyway. A few more bits and pieces were sorted then it was time to put it on a complete set of wheels. Went for a set of 14" BBS RAs at first which I think looked alright. I then got my hands on a set of BMW E30 bottle tops. I think they looked a little better. That was pretty much that for a while.
  12. Car - 1999 Polo 8v with an AFH engine + transmission Wheels - 15 inch with 195/50 Conditions - Greek summer so ambient temps of >30c I was travelling to my home town and I was bored so while in the highway I kept from 93mph to 105mph. The AFH trans is ridiculously short so the revs were probably in the 5k+ range. Engine temp was OK. The highway at the time was empty, so my speed was consistent throughout my trip. When I reached my town, the following problems occured: While downshifting to the first lights, the 3rd grinded. When i tried to re-engage no gear would go in. I used my momentum to put it on the side and waited for a couple of minutes (engine on). After that, the gears would go in but I also had a noticable rpm-dependent whine. When I reached home I realised that the whine would dissaper when I pressed the clutch pedal and prompty reappear when I took my foot off. After I let the car sit for a few hours, the whine was gone, and the gearbox seemed to be OK. Under the hood there is a strong smell of gas, and there is an irregular clicking noise that I think comes from the gearbox area. Did the gearbox overheat? After my drive I was thinking about clutch bearings, but now the whine is gone so I'm not so sure. Any idea of what might have happened?

    AFH loom

    So hopefully in the near-ish future I want to convert my coupe 1.3 to afh 1.4 16v and i just want to fuel it with injection but I'm not sure about the wiring iv heard of a complicated way of splicing the looms with both the fuse boxs or something along those lines and iv also heard that you can make a loom using both engine looms with minimal wires just wondering if anyone can shed some light on which is the best way to do it and I really don't want to run it on bike carbs.
  14. Hi, I have got all the front panel off etc I am wanting to take the engine out only leaving the gearbox, driveshaft etc in. I assume I just undo the main engine mount and the gearbox main bolts? Can all this be done from the front and not getting underneath engine? I have engine crane hoist.
  15. where oil sensor is at front of head. to side of that, half way down engine : 4 black plugs going into a box
  16. So I'm gathering parts for my AFH conversion on my 1.4 6N. Today I picked up a throttle body for a good price (in my country). When i went home, i realized that *something* inside is hitting the plastic housing on the side (see attached image). It sounds like some small part is sliding on an axle. It is not loose in the sense that it rattles around every time I move it, but rather it hits the housing every time I tilt it to the left. Is this normal? Should I return it?

  18. Slimline starter motors - AFH, ARC & AVY As of early next week we should have 4 of these available in the Club Polo shop. These starter motors will fit all Polos using the 085 gearbox and mk2/2f/3 (up to 1994) flywheel. They also offer more torque than the standard units and due to the slimmer design are perfect for use on the AFH engine conversions with a mk2/2f flywheel. Can also be used on the ARC and AVY engine with the mk2/2f flywheel but a slight modification to rotate the starter is recommended. I can provide pictures of this if needed. If you are not sure whether this will fit your engine then just ask. Price will be £225 delivered. A link to the shop will be added once they are in. Also if there is interest for more then please let me know as I can get another batch made up if there are 5 or more people interested.

    VW POLO 1.4 16V AFH PISTONS Comes in original box/packaging


  20. I currently have mk2f polo coupe with a 1043cc 4 speed and im looking to upgrade to a different engine and looking for advice and which to go for 14 afh, 13 gt, 14 8v etc appreciate the help cheers
  21. Hi Everyone, So I am working on a Mk2f polo breadvan van. I bought it as a completely stripped shell with a few parts, I've worked my way up to making it solid, fitting some suspension, steering rack, wheels, brakes. I do have the original 1l engine, but it wasn't in the car when I got it, I haven't seen or heard it run. and then I've the original mk2f loom, which doesn't seemed to be marked very well. In my head I'm thinking it might be easier to drop a AFH or ABD engine in which ill strip myself from the donor, with its entire loom and drop it into the breadvan. Does an AFH or ABD just plop straight in? and more importantly, if I like the loom ignition etc straight from the donor car and put it in the stripped polo will there be any issues? Car is and will stay totally stripped, so no heating, no central locking, no anything that it doesn't need to stop and go. Any advice, suggestions more than welcome. Thanks
  22. Hi people, I’m sure this question has been asked many times but I’m looking for the general idea. What is the best gearbox to fit to an afh in a 1990 mk2? Any help is appreciated
