  1. 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) 😣
  2. 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

    Under rocker Cover

    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.
  4. 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

    cam upgrade

    VW Polo 9N 1.8 GTI Cup Edition Genuine Febi Outlet Camshaft Kit, what gain could i see on a polo 9n3 gti or is there any difference?
  7. Been searching but can't find anything about it, it's meant to of been taken out of an ABD engine, can anyone confirm this? If so is there anything different about it to the 030AH? Thanks, Joe.
  8. Hey everyone! Didn't get much (any) service history with my AUD engine Polo 1.4 so to be on the safe side I'm planning on doing the Cam belt. First off, I'm going to get a 'Timing Belt Kit' from eurocarparts, they seem to have either Dayco, Ina or SPF - any opinions on the best manufacturer? Also, do you know what these will include? (example is at link http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Volkswagen_Polo+Hatch_1.4_2001/p/car-parts/car-service-parts/major-service/timing-belt-kits/?348770175&1&969bf78ab74d4b8fda51b1394f81de996188b697&000332) Is there anything else that's recommended to replace/service as part of the same job, and if so - what other parts do I need to order? Thanks in advance! Andy
  9. Was wondering what cams have been put into these engines (APQ) before? I'm just trying to squeeze a little more life into my 8v 6n. I'm just in process of fitting a pipercross viper enclosed induction kit & toying with the idea of a steel exhaust manifold. The engines due a cambelt change in a few thousand miles so thought it would be a good time to consider a new cam. I've looked at a 264 & a 268 deg which both sound reasonable from http://www.newman-cams.com/catalogue.html but wondering if these would even fit? Any suggestions people???
