  1. Hi, As per title. Who is the OEM for Radiators - in-particular G40 Where is a good place to buy one now ? Part no is: 867121253AB And who else makes half decent rads?
  2. So I'm looking at renewing suspension bushes on my Mk2F breadvan... I'm confused over the front suspension control arm inner bush, Number 18 on this diagram. https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1991-120/4/411-32000/ 7Zap shows two versions (ignoring the G40), with different part numbers for #18 18 823 407 181 bonded rubber bush 2 HZ,2G,NZ,AAU 1W,3F,AAV, ACM (18) 861 407 181 bond
  3. Hi all, I want to remove the oil dipstick tube on 1.3 55hp engine (carb). It seems quite tight but I don't know if I should just pull it or turn it anti-clockwise before pulling or else. I don't want to break the tube since it's not easy to find.
  4. See my clubg40 post: Hesitancy / Misfire 1500rpm-2k COLD only (polog40.co.uk) Fairly stock G40 which when cold, first 2miles or so, produces a real hesitancy around 1500-2k. Higher rpm's seem to sort it - like it's forcing the engine to fix itself. Warm engine sorts it too. This leads me to thinking it would be the blue temp sender as that is temp dependant, but it isn't. To my knowledge spark side is ok: Coil - Cap - Arm - Leads - Plugs
  5. Hi all, I'm looking for an equivalent to part VW 861 412 319 for my polo mk2 (1991 not a mk2F). The part is called front suspension top stop or something which sound like that. The part is quite rare and a bit expensive. I've found some on commercial sites and often they're out of stock. What I'm looking for is if I can use similar part from other polo generation or other vw models which fits with the polo mk2. I've seen pictures of the ones installed on polo 6N and golf mk2. It seems they look quite different and since I don't have one I can't confirm if their dimen

    Hi all

    HI all My name is Jim and I live just outside Northampton. Had my polo for about 8 years but the rust is winning so I'm now fixing the that. http://imgur.com/a/5LZLVXi
  8. Hello all. I've recently purchased a 93 1.3Spi breadvan. I am currently having issues with poor idle when cold. The ignition timing is currently set to about 25 degrees before TDC. I have tried setting the ignition timing to 5 +/- 1 BTDC as per a Haynes manual. When this is done it will run when Hot but hesitant to Rev. But when engine is cold it will not idle or sometimes start unless I revert back to the original timing. It has recently had new: Plugs, dizzy, coil, HT leads, Blue temp sensor, lambda, fuel pump, filters. I have checked for the correc
  9. Hi, I have a stuck piston in one rear wheel cylinder, so will be replacing it. I have a question about the sub-types of cylinder. There are different sizes, my car has no brake balance controller so needs the "A" subtext part, 15.87 mm piston. VW dealer confirmed this with my reg number. 6 1H0 611 053 A wheel brake cylinder 15,87 FAG https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1991-120/6/609-37000/ However various online suppliers have subtle differences for 1H0 611 053

  13. Hi all I have a leak on my gt gearbox from drive shaft I think ? Its definitely not from gear selector rod .Please look at photo. So anyone know the replacement seal I need please. I'm hoping I can do it while box is in as I only have just put engine back in so it would twist my Mellons if I had to take it out again.

    Back in a G40

    Well I will be when this little beauty gets delivered (due first week of Feb) and I’m unbelievably excited. It’s my second G40 and probably the car I’ve missed the most, they are horrible to get the power down on and don’t stop but guaranteed to put a smile on your face. I’m grinning just at the thought of having one again. This one is running circa 150bhp I’d guesstimate from the mods. My last G40 was 180bhp. Not sure of plans for it yet other than sort out a bit of rust as a starting point but that’ll probably have to wait until the scooby restoration is finished.
  19. Hi all, Looking to get both sills replaced on my G40. I can find the 'outer' sills on Heritage Parts Centre, but I can't find any 'inner' ones. Do these actually exist? or do I just need the 'outer' ones. Sorry if this seems like a silly question! Cheers, Tim
  20. So I have been looking through the forums and Facebook pages but can't get a clear answer. Iv got a mk2f 1l 4 speed and found a AFH 1.4 to swap into it. What parts do I need out the doner car and do I need any other parts? Seen I will need a 5 speed mount/adapter but what else?

    manual choke cable

    Hello, first post in a long while... I've had a search through the forum to find answers but no luck (doesn't help I have a short attention span). Apologies if this should be in the engine section, I couldn't decide.. and soz if it's been covered time and time again - I did check the faq pages and I've read most of the fitting bike carbs thread. Maybe it's just a stupid question other people don't need to ask but I want a good understanding of what I'm doing before I buy the parts. I've got bike carbs on my mk2, which was previously auto choked. I'm planning on attaching a manual choke c

  23. Hey everyone, this is my first post so if its in the wrong place I do apologise. I’ve converted my 1992 Polo Mk2F to an AFH running the standard injection and ECU. The way I did this was buying a donor car which was already converted. This car is a 1989 Mk2 Polo. The car runs and behaves normal on idle. However when I try to drive it, it bogs down at around 2500rpm in 1st and 2nd at partial throttle, if I floor it, it doesn’t happen. In every other gear it drives fine regardless of throttle position. I swapped everything over from the older Polo to try and rule
  24. The shifting on my mk2f has always been a bit rubbish - my first drive home in it I was pulling out of junctions in 3rd like a lunatic thinking I was in 1st and something was terribly wrong - turned out I needed to 'twist' the sifter counter-clockwise to get it to plonk into 1st. 1st to 2nd requires a lot more force than between other gears which is a bit of a pain jumping out on junctions and roundabouts. Got used to it and didn't think much of it but recently re-reading some other shifting queries I started to wonder if it doesn't need some new bushings etc. I guess the question
