    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

    Breadvan

    Just bought a polo. Needing some work, mostly cosmetic. Wondering where the best place to source parts? Centre console, glove box and exterior trim
  4. 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
  6. Hello fellow polo owners. I own a 93' vw polo 86c mk2f with a 1.0 4 speed box. I have seen a 1.3 gt engine and box for sale and I was wondering how much work is involved to swap the engine and gearbox. I think most of the parts from the old car are available wiring loam ecu etc what would I need to change, engine or gearbox mounts etc? Thanks
  7. 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)
  8. Hi, unfortunately my bready has become an annoying illusive siv... I have had an oil leak fairly excessively for a couple months costing copious amounts on oil. I decided after looking and looking that although I had a suspicion of the leak being from either the rocker or head gaskets as had just changed them. So after fully dismantling and re assembling after a deep bay clean and an actual metal coloured engine had appeared I was able to see it was from the rocker cover gasket in the drivers side and closest to front of car corner of the gasket. The rocker cover sits level but does have some movement left right when the top bolts are not tightened down. Is there a position the rocker cover has to be in to properly seal? The gasket is also seemingly slightly big as you can see it on a side of the rocker cover when it moves. Have attached pics to help explain although have a video I cannot attach here of the movement l/r of the rocker I can email etc ? Any help appreciated Thanks a lot George

    89 breadvan

    Hi everyone, first time poster here. Currently restoring a breadvan with my youngest son - we wanted a project we could work on together. Only one lady owner - for real. We were lucky enough to find one with full documentation 🙂
  10. I've seen a quite recent post on converting a solex 31 to a weber carb for a 1.3 breadvan. My breadvan has the 1.0 block and a leaking flange between the carb and inlet manifold. The part number is 052 129 765 B , doesn't get sold anymore and doesn't have the same fit as the flange ending with A that the 1.3 engine has (to my knowledge). I wasn't able to find any weber conversion kits for the solex 31 and a flange that would fit the inlet manifold. Has anybody seen some carb conversion which fits a flange that can replace the 052 129 765 B ? I fear converting the inlet manifold with my rookie skills.

    It is finally time to sell my polo due to wanting to finish another project. The car has an mot untill July 2020 and has just had new break pads & rear drivers side wheel bearing, since the last mot the car has only driven to the shop a couple of times & to Santa pod raceway the car ran fine all the way there apart from the choke had to be left on I suspect that one of the jets are blocked as I don,t use the car a lot I've not got round to doing a carb rebuild. The car is starting to show some signs of surface rust on the sills & arches and there is a patch on the bonnet that has peeled but has been patched up but apart from that the paint & body work is in very good condition for its age. I'm not too keen to sell to be honest so i wont take any stupid offers as I do like the car & will miss it, it's just I need the money for another project. £1500 ono.

  12. Hello, I'm new to the forum so sorry in advance if this question has been asked too many times. My 1984 mk2 breadvan has quite severe engine hesitation under acceleration. There is a 'dead zone' when you push the throttle halfway, then if you start flooring it the engine picks up revs again. I already saw there is a list of things in an engine that can cause this, but before trying everything i thought about narrowing down the options. Do any of you know whether there is a very likely cause for a mk2 breadvan to have such hesitation? BTW: the spark plugs and leads are already checked and OK. Bastian
  13. Does anyone know how much this is lowered by.
  14. Can anyone tell me what the corrugated hose ( metal inside, cardboard outside) that runs from the exhaust manifold round the corner to the air filter? Is called and where I would find a replacement. It is about 2 and a bit inches in diameter thanks in advance
  15. I have just bought a mk2f polo breadvan but have found most of the driver side sill is shot and possibly the floor pan. I was wondering if anyone knows of somewhere to buy floor pans for the mk2f as I haven't been able to find any.

    MK2 breadvan Formel E with SSA

    Hello everyone, my name is Brett and I live near Southend in Essex. I have recently purchased my first Polo, a MK2 Breadvan Formel E. It is the second VW I have owned after having a MK1 golf about 10 years ago. I was looking for something retro that I could use as an almost daily alongside my family car that wasn't as big of a project as my classic mini. Here are some details on the car Model: MK2 breadvan Trim: Polo C Formel E with SSA Colour: silver Year: 1985 Registration: B832MSF Mileage: 93,000 Modifications: Weber carb and some wheel trims... Plans: to keep the car in good running order smarten up the bodywork and go to car shows in it. So far I have only got the car back into storage whilst I wait for the logbook to come through. Unfortunately it was all lost as the original owner passed away which mean there was a distinct lack of history with the car as well. It was already MOT'd when I got and after a look over it the car seemed like the ideal rolling project. After a bit more research it turned out some aspects of the car were quite rare so I decided to keep it fairly standard rather than go mad modifying it. There is one of the trims missing off the drivers door which I know most people remove however I wanted to keep it standard so I have sourced a replacement. It has the SSA system on it which I would like to get working but as it has the Weber carb it will not do it. However I have managed to find a Pierburg carb the original one for it as well from the same person that has the trim. He has been very helpful indeed with educating me on the breadvan by finding information and looking for bits in their large collection spares. The guy's name is Johnny Leach I imagine he will be on here. What a big help he has been already! He also sorted me out another matching wheel trim as I know they are not supposed to have them but I thought I would have a set. I have got my eyes on a set of Wolfsburg BBS alloy wheels for it as well. The next step is to fit the carb and the door trim and as the car has been in a garage for the last 20 odd years service it and do the cambelt, brakes etc. It has a little leak from the radiator which I have ordered and I have also got a whole load of stuff off GSF car parts with a super VIP discount code! I have added some pictures but unfortunately all I have is screenshots of the eBay listing so far! I'm sure I will have more soon! My next afternoon free of dad and husband duties is Sunday so I'm looking to carry on with the car then and will post another update after!
  17. *(Sorry for the double post, didn't realise there was a specific forum for this!)* Hi all, so today out of sheer boredom, I decided to look up some old cars of mine on 'Check The Car' to see if they were still on the road! Much to my surprise, my old breadvan was showing as MOTed and Taxed! I haven't owned or seen the car for over 5 years but just wondered if anyone on here owns it or has any info about it! It was purchased from me in Surrey as a SORN project and ??went up north somewhere?? when I sold it before going off to uni, but that's about as much as I know! it was reg: G477 WMO, a white 1989 'Match' edition although 'Check The Car' is now showing it as Green! Would just be great to see how it's looking now as this car meant a lot to me! Any help appreciated, thanks. 🙂
  18. 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. ☺️

    Project Breadvan GT

    Alright guys, not sure how many people check the forums these days? As opposed to facebook etc. Anyway im gonna give this a go and do a build thread ... bare with me! So i picked up this GT swapped bready a couple weeks a go now, its a pretty basic/ standard set up at the mo, only running a non gt 5 speed box. The car was originally a 1l genesis (still registered as). Engine and box swapped in by the lad i got it from. Its far from perfect and needs a fair amount of work doing. I was wanting another weekend car for drives out after i sold my 1.3 genesis a few months a go, and i couldnt resist this as a project for the price i paid. First jobs im tackling are gearbox issues, oil & coolant leaks to hopefully get it into a more driveable state in the next few weeks. Ill aim to keep this thread updated as often as i can or at least as often as i get stuff done on the car. Hopefully at least a few people can find interest in it. Any questions fire away ... all advice and comments welcome please as i go guys. Cheers Ash
  21. I'm about to pull the engine on my 84 mk2 breadvan and I'm going to fully rebuild with some gt parts and porting work for fun. Is it worth doing the bottom end too? I was thinking of leaving it. Is there anything engine/not engine related that you guys would recommend I take a look at and replace whilst its out that I might not know about? I can see theres a bunch of full engine gasket sets on ebay... is there a particular one I should go for or will any do. I'd like to work on the gearbox too, again is there anything I can replace in there? which oil does it need and how much? Cheers
  22. Hi All, Relatively new to this forum, but I am looking for any additional information to resolve the black smoke issue I currently have with my 1982 mk2 Polo Breadvan 1.0 litre (Weber 32 IBF carburetor). Over the past year the car has undergone a major body restoration which was finished approximately November 2018, but with the cold weather now set the car was placed in storage for almost 5 months. Spring 2019 the car was removed from storage but had developed several starting issues which have since been resolved i.e. new fuel, fuel pump, spark plugs, fuel lines, starter motor and distributor. The car then ran well for about 2 weeks, then became really lumpy at idle and pretty much undriveable. The car has recently passed its MOT, which during the test the technician tweaked the carburetor to bring its idle speed back to an acceptable level however this meant the car would run very lumpy at higher revs and stall when they were brought back down. We have since refurbished the carburetor along with various other jobs, but the car now plumes out black smoke when cold and when under load when warm. Ignoring the smoke, the car idles and runs well but there is obviously an underlying issue. Initially over-fueling was my thoughts, but we have now reset the carburetor several times but with the same result. The mixture screw is approximately 1.5 turns out and the car is no longer lumpy when idling. The only remaining jobs I need to complete are an oil/filter change and the rubber mount underneath the carburetor. Holding down the carburetor to seal any voids in the mount does not improve the smoke or affect the idle speed. I have searched the forum and found a few ideas from different posts and believe we have exhausted most ideas; so we are looking for any further ideas before we strip the internals and look for any wear inside the block. Below is a summary of the what we have examined: · Filters – both air and fuel filters have been replaced despite showing no signs of dirt or degradation. · Fuel lines – cleaned and replaced if necessary. · Fuel pump – replaced. · Spark plugs – replaced and cleaned several times in the past few weeks. · Fuel – tank emptied, re-filled with fuel cleaner additive. · Distributor cap – replaced with new points. · Earth straps – both replaced. · Weber 32 IBF carburetor – jets and body cleaned with car cleaner, serviced with genuine Weber kit i.e. new gaskets, washers, o-rings, float needle/seat, solenoid and diaphragm. Float height has been confirmed as correct and all flow tubes are clear. · Carburetor rubber mount – looks OK but is being replaced in the next few days. · Oil cleaner (Wynnes smoke clear) additive. · Vacuum lines have been checked. · Thermostat will be replaced in the next few days. · Oil will be replaced this weekend. Any further ideas would be greatly appreciated. I can add photographs of the engine if required. Many Thanks
  23. Slowly breaking a 1.3SPI AAV white breadvan 1993. Let me know if you want anything. Dash fully stripped. Wings sold. Engine bare block sold. Door rotted out at bottom. Seats not good. Gearbox, ARB staying with me. Located Somerset TA19
  24. I've done an engine swap in my MK2 bready, the engine "works" but I can't seem to run without the choke on (or slight acceleration). I'm running with a piersburg solex pic 7 carb on a new rubber flange with no air leaks. Without choke it will try to run then cough and die even when the engine is warm. Any ideas on how to get this to idle smoothly.
  25. Hi Everyone I've had my fair share of Polo's over the years, starting with a MK2 breadvan when I passed my test back in 2002. After scrapping my 6n2 in 2016, I had been itching to get another classic. Whilst visiting the Isle of Skye for a week back in July 2016, I spotted this late model MK2 Polo Country lying at the end of someones driveway. I had a snoop around, and despite looking a tad unloved, it was clean and only had 39k miles showing. I put a note through the door asking if it was for sale, and heard nothing for the remainder of my time there. I went home, slightly deflated and expecting never to see it again. In November 2016, I received a call from the owner asking if I was still interested. The owner told me it had been her mothers car, which she had bought brand new in 1990. When her mother gave up driving, it passed to her in 2006. It has a fully stamped service book, original keys, dealer plates, tax disc holder etc. Unfortunately I had just spent all my spare funds buying a MK1 Golf Cabriolet, so I very reluctantly had to pass up on it. In 2017 I found myself with some spare money, but I had lost the owners number. I made some attempts at reaching out to them via local Facebook groups, but this was unsuccessful. I even had a friend who was passing the area attempt to make contact, but the Polo was nowhere to be seen. Fast forward two years to November 2018, by which point the dream had long been buried. The owner contacted me again out the blue, asking if I would still be interested. Of course I jumped at the chance, and after several phone calls arranging the logistics, I collected it on the 8th of December 2018 on the back of my brother-in-law's pick up. After a 5 hour - 160 mile drive over some of Scotlands nicest roads, we arrived back in Ayrshire where the Polo was put into the garage for some light restoration work. Over December and January we got the car running. It didn't need much, a new battery, a light service (filters, plugs, belts etc), some fresh fuel and away it went. The exhaust was beyond repair though so a replacement was sourced and fitted. In early February we took it a drive around some farm roads to get it up to temperature. This gave us a chance to iron out a few idling issues caused by the automatic choke. With that sorted and it now running perfectly, we presented it for MOT on 16th February. It passed! In celebration, I obtained a replacement Country/Parade interior from a guy around 70 miles away. I had been on the lookout for one ever since I knew I was buying the car, so I think finding a decent original interior in less than 4 months is an achievement, considering there are less than 100 left of this model on the road (www.howmanyleft.co.uk). I gave the car a good wash, which I think was the first time it has seen a sponge in at least 5 years. The photos make it look a lot better than it actually is if I am honest. I plan on getting it resprayed soon, so I've put some MK2F trims on it just to tidy it up a little for now. I do have the original ones which I will fit later. In a few months time I am having it fully resprayed. This will give me some time to source some replacement trim parts that are a bit tired, as well as new "Country" decals. In the meantime, I plan on installing some new speakers (it still has the original Panasonic cassette deck) and really just enjoy it along with my MK1 Golf Cabby. I'll update this thread with any progress as I go. If anyone has instagram, I post on there regularly (@stevenvw.co.uk) or on my website at www.stevenvw.co.uk. Happy to hear any comments or suggestions 🙂 Steven
