i must be cursed.
fuel tank leaking after allowing fuel to go to carbs and go through return pipe into tank,
the leak is central and right onto the main anti roll bar on back. is this bar directly under the fuel filter?
it only leaks when pump is running. tank is 3/4 full. soon as it stops priming , leak stops.
must be fuel filter? rubber seals corroded after been sat in winters?
car can't move as its a new build, , cams, rings need to be run in.
cars been sat in garage for two years:
have a new battery - checked voltage across battery all okay.
checked voltage on the leads them selves that connect to battery to make sure they were connected tight.
but the car is dead, no electric at all.
the lead from negative terminal from battery connects to a bolt that secures the gearbox to engine block.
the gearbox has been spray painted but the bolt was not.
I believe the dash electrics get thier power from the small 6mm red lead that connects to positive terminal of battery.
not sure what's gone wrong as I connected it all back up as it what and took lot's of pics.
the only thing that is different is I have not connected any head lights and the horn.
can ihave the part number for polo 6n radiator temp sensor which sits in between the two pipes on the radiator.
i cant get the old one off because its a 23mm extended socket required to get it off so id buy a new one instead.
when you grease the cv joint on the driveshaft end that connects to the gearbox flange, do you also have to put some grease on the gearbox flange side?
gearbox is in and connected the selector to the gearbox. first of all bolt keeps turning , not sure how tight it is supposed to be.
secondly after tightning it, pressed clutch pedal to test out the gears and every gear is going in very sluggish and very difficult. it feels very ugly like if it is being forced. not how it used to be. they would go in like a normal car should lol.
the oil level is very low but as im not driving the car yet should that have any effect on the gear selection smoothness or have i cocked up the selector to gearbox.
