I’m probably facing the task of having to change the infamous 1B3 Rubber Carb mount on my 1043HZ Breadvan, but want to fit the best quality one I can. I had previous problems with the deterioration of the original VW mount and have in the past fitted about 3 different makes of pattern part ones which, quite frankly, all seem to be absolute rubbish quality. The 1st one split after about 6 months, then two others that lasted less than that.I also found that as well as the rubber splitting, the pattern ones also have ‘inserts’ for the carb bolts that can easily pull out of the metal p
Hi guys Can anyone tell me where I'd find the plug connection for the inlet hedgehog? It's not plugged in the wire is just sat there. I'm trying to sort out my cold start issues and saw this, also need to check if the choke is working and find out how to adjust/fix it. Just replaced carb flange so hopefully no more vacuum leaks Thanks in advance
So I desperately need someone with knowledge on the pierburg choke set up to help me out. The choke isn't working at all, the valve stays fully open hot or cold. I've taken the housing off the sode and checked the bimetallic strip is connected etc. Twisting/adjusting the housing makes no difference.

Noble_polo95 posted a topic in Engine, Transmission and ExhaustHi all! Hoping for a bit of advice, my breadvan keeps cutting out 5minutes or so into a drive, doesn't start again. The first time it happened I was just setting off from some lights and the engine just died, battery light was solid on the dash after it cut out and it wouldnt start again. I sat around for 2hrs waiting for recovery and I was getting no spark. After getting towed home, I came back to the car 4hrs later and it started first time and sounded absolutely horrible! Sounded like it was underwater. I didnt drive it, didnt start it more than 3 times and got the same underwater noise.
