Hello thanks for reading, so I have recently bought two GT camshafts to go in my coupe s. I thought I was better off buying the two from different people so I could choose the best to use. Camshaft one, Lobes look in great condition with minimal wear or marks. I can’t feel any surface marks, however the bearing faces have vertical scoring the worst of which is pictured. I can only just feel the worst one with my nail. camshaft two, err well the opposite 😖 smooth bearing surfaces no problems but the lobes have these dark patches on them. I can’t feel anything with my finger or nail but they look scary. Which should I use? Or am I better off scrapping them both and trying again. Any advice would be great. Thanks!
Hi all. I know there is a lot of information on here already about the subject but I'm afraid I haven't been able to find the right information for my specific set up by searching previous threads. I'll be putting a GT cam in my mk2 in a couple of weeks and want to make sure I've got all the parts ready before I start. I'm confident that I can do the cam swap with my previous experience and the guide in faq. What I'm still stuck with is the fuel pump. Most of the info on here relates to what to use if you're running bike carbs, but I've got a weber carb (28/32 iirc) and don't know what pressure I need. I've spoken to a friend who says the pressure on facet pumps is adjustable but from what I've seen this isn't the case. I've also looked at the specs of the standard mech pump which says at 1000rpm it pumps at.0.20 - 0.25 bar. Which is a useful starting point but this presumably increases with revs. I've also read about using a ways of dealing with excess fuel, my carb definitely has a fuel in pipe and a second pipe that returns fuel to the tank. I have always referred to this second one as fuel return. Does this mean that I can have a set pressure fuel pump which may pump too much but any unused fuel will be returned to the tank anyway? If that's the case what bar / psi facet pump should I be looking for? Links would be appreciated. (all these questions and I haven't even got to the inertia switch yet) 😣
I am in the process of rebuilding a 1.3 engine for my mk2 polo, and am about to fit the camshaft and time it up. However I am unsure which of the two key ways on the cam the pulley is supposed to lock into to allow the timing marks to be correct. Can anyone shed some light on this for me? Thanks, Jordan
Hi All sorry if this has been asked before but I could not find anything when searching. I am doing my head gasket and under the rocker cover there is a plastic cover. I was just wondering how is this attached as when i took the rocker cover off it just seems to be sat on top. Is this how it is supposed to be ? Ive been told i need it as it stops splash from the oil.
Hi all, when I bought my 6n (1.4 CL) the bloke I got it from told me his father had done the timing belt in 2016 at what can only be 10K miles ago. He had No receipts or anything to prove but being a silly youth I bought the car. It has now occurred to me that the timing belt to me does not look all that “fresh”. Has a kind of thin zebra pattern on the back of the belt buT I can still read the Print. See pics attached, is changing the belt a hard job? My Haynes manual always makes jobs seem more complicated than they really are. Cheers in advance
