    Willysmiles build thread

    Been staring at peoples build threads for months now, so I decided to give my own a go. bought a completely standard 1988 coupe s with only 60k miles on the clock! One old couple owner from new, it’s a true standard gem; however I’ve now got my hands on it... my plan is to keep it looking mostly original looking but underneath have some nice mods to bring it to fast road spec, well as fast as a 1.3 can be. More to follow over over the next few months!
  2. 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.

    mk2 breadvan Paula the Polo

    Last October I bought this red beauty for 750 euro. A pretty good value imo, there is no serious rust on any structural parts. The ususal rust at the edge of the front-window and some below the rear bumper are the most severe cases of rust. The garage I bought it from put new wider but smaller wheels on it, so the car is already faster on the speedo : ) My plan is to take "Paula" for a roadtrip from Holland through scandinavia this summer. Before that can happen it does need some work on the engine though, I already posted on this forum about throttle hesitation. The fuel filter seemed to be the quick fix however the carb probably has a leak somewhere, the hesisation is still there. This is my first project car, so feel free to give me tips/advise! Last day of November Paula her home for the winter

    83 black breadvan

    Just bought my second mk2 after about 4 years of wishing I never got rid of my first one. She is in a right state as fuel filler neck, wheel arch, fuel filler flap and battery tray is rotten. There’s general surface on near all panels where paint has been damaged. And one half of the car is rattle canned. As far as I can remember the polo was taken off the road in 1998 to be used as a donor car. So pretty happy to do the work to get her back on the road. If anyone else has a black mk2. I’d love to see it as I’m thinking of respraying it back to gloss black.
  9. While I’ve got my golf off the road I’m looking to fit my twin dcoe 40s to my 1986 1.3 mh. Fuelling, linkage and manifold all understood but I’m in need of suggestions as far as ignition goes. Dcoe carbs have no take off for ignition advance so the car will never run right on the current setup. Anyone know what people usually do in this application? Searched and searched but information is either limited or old pages 404. Read about everything from having the Advance weights and springs changed to standalone systems(which if possible I’d like to avoid for now) not the most cost effective mod for performance but that’s not what this is about, just suggestions for the setup I’d like to run. Any help greatly appreciated!
  10. 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
  11. I am in the process of building a 1.3 8v. I have just purchased a water pump kit to find it has the V toothed pulley and belt. Anyone have a lead on a v toothed cam pulley I can purchase? Thanks, Jordan

    Fern - Mk2 Polo Coupe

    So this is going to be my build thread for Fern, This is Liz's old car that she had very generously sold (something thats still not sunk in yet and again massive thanks Liz) on to me with the request to get her back on the road and at the Polo Social 2018. I have no clue what way im going to go with her yet (i know im not going for silly low and back killing), as many know I do have a selection of parts from my old mk2F that's has been taking up residence in a garden for the last few years so a few of those items will be transferred over. Heres the pictures that @Liz has given me, more to come once I go to pick her up at the end of the month.
  13. Hey guys I've got a mk2 1043 4 speed. Im looking to do a AFH conversion along with a 5 speed. I've gathered that most 5 speed mk3 boxes will fit if I get everything with it (linkage, clutch, starter etc). Will i also need the gearbox mount? Im in New Zealand where mk2/mk3s aren't very common. Hoping for some advice before I dive into it. Cheers Jacob!
  14. Will the aex with injection fit into an early mk2. RHD? I’ve heard that the brake cylinder hits the intake/map sensor. Is this right? Does anyone have any photos? Links? cheers liam
  15. Hi. I’m building a mk2 polo and I’m thinking of putting a 6n engine in using standard injection. What are my options when it comes to the immobiliser? Will I need to get the standard ecu reprogrammed? I know there is a good thread on engine swaps but can’t seem to find any info on using injection opposed to using bike carbs. any information will be appreciated or links to threads thanks liam

    Stateside Polo

    Just picked up this 1992 Polo here in the US. As you can see it needs a thorough cleaning, the previous owner had it parked in his driveway for sometime before I acquired the car. In its lifetime it was sent to a shop to have an AEB 1.8t swapped into it. Im new to Polos but certainly not new to VW. 👍
  17. *(Sorry for the double post, didn't realise there was a specific forum for this!)* Hi all, so today out of sheer boredom, I decided to look up some old cars of mine on 'Check The Car' to see if they were still on the road! Much to my surprise, my old breadvan was showing as MOTed and Taxed! I haven't owned or seen the car for over 5 years but just wondered if anyone on here owns it or has any info about it! It was purchased from me in Surrey as a SORN project and ??went up north somewhere?? when I sold it before going off to uni, but that's about as much as I know! it was reg: G477 WMO, a white 1989 'Match' edition although 'Check The Car' is now showing it as Green! Would just be great to see how it's looking now as this car meant a lot to me! Any help appreciated, thanks. 🙂
  18. Hey. First post and pretty desperate! Throttle linkage is knackered on my '83 MK2 - garage have said they have to replace the entire carb. Does this sound right? If so, can anybody point me in the right direction where to source the best carb? My last car was an '89 model and I replaced the original carb with a Weber as suggested by a mate - resulted in a manual choke being put in and ultimately being the biggest pain in the ass, she never ran the same after that! So I'm a bit reluctant to go down that road again...... Any tips or advice would be awesome. Cheers, Anna
  19. Hi, just installed a new Weber DMTL using a kit (from fastroadcars). Standard jets, which according to the topics I've read should be fairly ok for this OK. Not getting any idle, with the choke pulled out all the way it surges up to 3k and almost stalls, then back again. Had a little fiddle with the idle mixture adjustment screw, not doing much. The rubber flange (?) on the inlet/base of the carb is pretty crusty. I'm thinking that's a possible culprit. Does anyone have any other ideas or things to try?
  20. Hi, In the process of rebuilding my mk2 after a few years but have come to connecting all the wiring harness back up and am having some issues as I cannot remember where a lot of it connects to. I've tried reading the Haynes but to be honest I really struggle to make sense of the wiring diagram. Is there anyone with a good knowledge of the mk2 harness that would be able to help me out? I can describe wire colour and origin etc and maybe someone could tell me where it connects to? Thanks, Aaron
  21. Hi guys, Tearing my hair out with my 1.0 1990 mk2 breadvan, HZ engine code When I first purchased it it needed some TLC and had new Filters, fuel tank, fuel pump, distributor rotor arm ht leads battery And brakes After almost a year it started cutting out when stopping at a junction or heavy braking. I got fed up with it and left it on the drive way and bought a new car. Fast forward a couple of years years and I want to restore it. Mostly to learn, possibly to sell after not quite sure yet. However, on trying to start the engine with new fuel it refused. Since then I have changed leads plugs ignition coil carburettor flange The distributor and rotor arm still look ok. I have 12v at ignition coil with ignition turned on and if I pour petrol/spray carb cleaner into carb it will start for a few seconds then die out. Whilst the carb was off I tried my best to clean it without doing a full service. I have also blown through the needles with a compressor. has anyone got any ideas what the issue could be? Im getting close to torching it 🔥😡 many thanks in advance if you can can help diagnose my problem. ☺️
  22. I'm about to pull the engine on my 84 mk2 breadvan and I'm going to fully rebuild with some gt parts and porting work for fun. Is it worth doing the bottom end too? I was thinking of leaving it. Is there anything engine/not engine related that you guys would recommend I take a look at and replace whilst its out that I might not know about? I can see theres a bunch of full engine gasket sets on ebay... is there a particular one I should go for or will any do. I'd like to work on the gearbox too, again is there anything I can replace in there? which oil does it need and how much? Cheers

    Another one bites the dust

    You'd be forgiven for thinking this pic was taken in the early 90s...………..it was yesterday! Mate had spied a mk2 coupe lying at a house and was trying to find out what the deal was with it. This pair then appeared nearby. Total waste!!!!!
  24. Looking at H&R Cup Kit (35mm all round) Anyone got pics of them on a Mk2?
  25. I have a 1988 Coupe S and am lowering it on 14” BBS RA wheels. looking at options and came across this kit - has anyone tried it / got any photos or reviews they can share? https://www.eibachshop.co.uk/eibach-b12-prokit-suspension-kit-e90850360122_p31225036.htm#.XT8JVCXTWEc Thanks!
