Hello, Just got my -84 Polo Classic together and running. 1.3 HK with Pierburg 2E3 carb. Problem is the rough and dragging sound from the head area, could it be the fuel pump? Took timing cover and other stuff off to make sure there was nothing dragging. Link to video: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1T3BksxrxnnlufVRbofBAx6PGC6eIEWuC/view?usp=drivesdk Also the mixture screw on the carb doesn’t seem to have any effect to the car running. How much should it affect (on idle) when screwed almost fully in vs almost fully out? Pardon my English, cheers from Finland!
Hi all, My 1986 Polo’s HZ engine is running badly. When cold, the engine cuts out whenever I need to stop. When warm, it feels like it wants to stall but the engine kind of catches itself and sounds lumpy. It feels low on power and the fuel consumption isn’t great. It makes driving it a bit scary and dangerous as I don’t want it cutting out on me at busy junctions etc. I’m really keen to fix this problem. I just want to learn how to diagnose and repair this issue. I believe that these symptoms are caused by a vacuum leak somewhere. Could this be at the rubber carburettor flange, somewhere in the vacuum pipes or maybe from a blocked jet in the carburettor? I have a genuine VW carb flange to replace the one on my car currently. However I’m unsure on the following: I have a Pierburg 1B3. How do I clean the carburettor jets? Do I need to remove them and what products/cleaning process do I need to do to ensure I can clean them properly and without damaging them? Please can someone tell me which vacuum pipes need checking too? Thanks
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. I think my fault is with the mechanism at the bottom of the levers for the choke flap. There's one pivot that controls the rod from the strip going to the flap then there's a second with notches - I don't think this is doing it's job because it won't move to let the choke be on in the first place, it's not seized but I don't think it's right. Can anyone with good knowledge of these carbs please get in touch, would be hugely appreciated! Thanks
