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.
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
Hello everyone, My name Dan Hunt, im new to this sceen, this forum and new owner of mk2 vw polo fitted with a 1.1litre engine with a pierburg 1b3 carburetor Ive read a few posts but i havnt found to much that helps me with my problem. So heres the problem. Yesterday i went to drive my polo and started up right away from cold with out a single issue as normal but was fast idling. Then soon as i pressed and release the accelerator the engine revs drop the engine judders a bit and then fights to stay alive but dies. From warmish start it starts up right way without issue again as normal but then soon as revs settle to idle it judders and dies. So far ive tried cleaning the carb as much as possible without stripping it apart. And ive noticed a crack in the carb mount. And ive noticed the vac lines could need replacing and the fuel lines also which i will do soon as possible. I believe it must be something wrong with the carb i have some experience with carbs from my 1960 beelte but i know zero about this complicated looking pierburg and have no idea of its common faults and fixes. Anyhelp or past experience with this would be amazing as i need the car working by next Thursday
