    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    Hi, for sale is my 1994 VW Polo Mk2f. It has done 65k genuine miles (have some old Mot's and service receipts that can help verify this). I have 2 keys, one genuine, and the original VW handbook with the booklets inside. The car has been well maintained and is in extremely good condition for a 24 year old car! It has genuine BBS RA's off of a G40 that were professionally acid dipped and refurbished. This has been such a fun car to own ane drive. As my first car I couldn't have wished for anything more fun, reliable and unique to drive. I constantly got remarks about how nice the car was and how unique also. These are getting rare now and finding one with low mileage and clean bodywork is almost impossible! The car has already had the dreaded fuel tank recently so should be fine for at least a few years to come. The car had a full service including water pump and head gasket, coolant, brake fluid, cambelt, filters and oil in April 2017 along with brakes and suspension and the engine work. It also had a new clutch and clutch cable. It's had replacement wheel bearings, track rod ends and CV joints also. The car has had the following modifications: Full engine conversion from a standard 45hp 1.0l engine to a 1.3l MPI engine out of a Polo Mk2f GT. Standard these engines push out 75hp. I believe the engine is on sub 100k but I have no proof. I then bought a ported and polished cylinder head, believed to be on 60k miles (again no proof). I had the ported head sent off and had the head skimmed, pressure tested, valve guides ground down and valves reseated at Modus engineering in Tunbridge Wells. I then built up the engine with a fast road camshaft from Newman cams. The engine now has uprated Magnecor red HT leads, a Powerflow performance panel filter and a PoloPerformanceParts stage 2 ECU chip (7200rpm limiter increase). The car is believed to be pushing out at least 100hp which in a sub 800kg car is enough to have some fun! I do still have the standard ECU chip if you wish to go back to standard. Since the engine work the car has covered around 10k miles. To support the engine enhancements, I bought all new OE equivalent shock absorbers and coil springs all round. I also polybushed the front suspension components, and replaced the rubber anti-roll bar bushes with nylon blocks. This makes the car feel firm to drive and handles amazingly. The car has also had decent brakes all round. In the interior I have changed the door cards to incredibly rare ones with speaker pods built in. I have then fitted JBL 6.5" speakers with tweeters higher up the door card. This has been wired in properly with all the wires behind the dash and only a small piece is visible between the door and the dash. The seats are the dark grey ones with the rainbow coloured Volkswagen writing on them which I massively prefer to the Fox seats. I have changed the stereo to a Sony bluetooth music and possibly phone also. I have ran subwoofer wires to the back of the car which work fine, however the sub and amp are not included in the sale. The boot has a carpeted wooden false floor for supporting the subwoofer as the standard boot floor is very weak and couldn't really support anything. There is still the spare wheel underneath this. I have changed the clocks in the dash to the better GT clocks so a rev counter is there. I have also fitted a Momo leather gear stick and matching steering wheel with a genuine Momo boss. I also bought carpet floor mats as it didn't have any and I prefer them to the genuine rubber ones. I have also wired in a cigarette lighter so I could charge my phone or use a satnav while driving. On the exterior I have made a few subtle changes. I sprayed the VW grill badge and boot badges black, replaced the orange rear lights for genuine factory smoked lights, clear front and side indicators with chrome bulbs and now have body coloured door handle inserts. I have spent a lot of time, effort and money on this car and will be sad to see it go. Would make a perfect first car as it did for me, with cheap insurance even with no black box. The engine modification is not declared with the DVLA, however I do have the engine number saved so if you wish to officially register the change in engine capacity, you are able to. Sadly, there are a few minor issues and I will try to be as honest as possible (I am quite particular so some of these might not even affect you at all): - There is a small oil leak from the head. I believe it's where I put the head gasket on, some dirt might have got trapped and allows small amounts of oil to sweat out the engine. I have been topping the oil up every now and then. - There are some scrapes down the passenger side. I have tried to picture the damage to the passenger side as it's the worst area. Some small scrapes mainly on the door and rear arch. Also the drivers door has has a dent pulled out at some point. - There is some sort of sticker residue on the b pillers that I can't get off easily. (not put that much effort in. Just used autoglym tar and glue, not much happened so I left it alone.) - Where I fitted the clocks, the wiring loom on the back of them is wrong, so occasionally the coolant light flashes, when the coolant level and temperature are perfectly normal. Usually turning the car off and on again fixes this. - The sunroof leaked water and had been sealed up when I bought the car. I changed the seal and it still leaked water so I put enough sealant to stop water dripping on me while driving. If this bothers you, a new sunroof or new sealant applied neatly would work. If someone takes as good care as I and the previous owners have, it will have many years of life left and is starting to become an appreciating retro cool car. Currently it is running a PPP stainless 4 branch manifold and full PPP stainless decat exhaust system. If this is going with the car, an additional cost of £250 will need to be added on the the asking price of £1250. To arrange a viewing/test drive please TEXT 07383417526 (will NOT answer calls as I work unsociable hours and may be asleep or working when you call). Car will be available to drive away from the 10th August.

    Your are bidding on a pair of VW POLO AFH 1.4 16V 6N INLET & OUTLET CAMSHAFTS. Engine Code: AFH Removed from a working engine at approx 80,000 miles.


  5. Hi all, ive got a 1990 H reg breadvan, its been sitting for a while, started it yesterday to let it charge the battery, just idling for a few minutes, and it started making a loud tappet noise which got louder with the oil fill cap removed , pulled off the cam cover, found some scoring and maybe a flat spot on one of the lobes, some metal shavings were in the oil around the cam and on the dipstick. i put oil directly on the lobes, cover back on and started it, was perfectly normal for about 10 seconds then it rattled again the oil light doesnt come on or anything like that so im thinking it has oil pressure? it never made any noise like that before, had the local garage do a full service on it a month ago, its done about 50 miles since then, no problems then either it did have a new cambelt, 10w40 synthetic oil and a filter but its still quite sooty and dirty looking the car also runs rough at low engine speeds with no vacuum leaks or timing issues or anything as far as me or the garage can tell how do i stop it? ive got some 20w50 in the shed, will that work temporarily or am i looking at a new cam and tappets or a new engine? Cheers Harry
  6. Found a camshaft for a 1.3 and the numbers on the shaft between the lobes is 030 9c is this a GT camshaft
  7. Hi everyone, Recently had a new crankshaft position sensor fitted on my 9N and thought I'd go ahead and replace the camshaft one as well. However, not being the most mechanical person in the world I can't find the thing at all! If anyone knows its exact whereabouts and could let me know (any pictures would be really appreciated) I would be very grateful! Cheers for reading and have a good day.
  8. Hi I am thinking of changing the cam on my mk2 with a standard 1.05L HZ Engine. I know a GT cam would be the obvious choice but the chance of finding one and being able to afford it is remote. So I was wondering if a Camshaft out of a different engine would fit straight in and still give a power increase? Doesn't matter about the mechanical fuel pump side of things because the car has an electric pump fitted. And another question... My mate has given me an exhaust manifold and headers off a 1.3 mk2f, which has the twin down pipes (4-2-1) instead of the single (4-1) pipe on the 1.0. Firstly will this fit on my polo without fouling on the Anit-Roll Bar? and secondly will it give any power increase? Thought id better ask before I start cutting and welding exhaust pipes worthlessly. :P

    Fuel Pump Problems

    Help! I've just completed a cylinder head gasket change on my 86c Coupe S with the 1272cc 40kw (54bhp) MH code engine. After re-assembly and first test fire I have no fuel being drawn through the system. I have taken the fuel pump off and operated it by hand (its the mechanical variety) and it works no problem. Which means the cam is not operating the fuel pump. This leads me to believe that there is a follower or rod in between the fuel pump and cam shaft that I have some how lost in the process. If this is the case does anyone know where I can find a new one? Or if anyone else has had this issue, please advise, I'm a bit stuck.
  10. Hi everyone, i have a 92' mk2f which has a 1.0 engine. its really fun and surprisingly nippy. Ive been thinking about doing some engine upgrades and don't want to do something extravagant as a) i don't have the experience or the masses of time required and b) the money. When i bought my car the previous seller gave me a gt camshaft which he bought to put into the engine however never got round to it. My 1.0 is really clean and smooth and is the reason to why i don't feel reluctant to tamper with it however i really want some gains. if i was to put the cam in My questions are is it worth it the power gains? will it cause any future issues with engine, timing, startups ect. (i really don't want to open the engine up to have to face issues in the future just because the engine is so clean being only a 60k) is it a simple mod to do? labour costs ( i would try myself however I'm stuck with loads of uni work and I'm not experienced enough) has anyone done this before? thanks to everyone that can help :)
  11. 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.
  12. 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???
