Polo Green smurf

In the spring '2017  the clutch was broken, when i was driving up to the home where i living, the clutch pedal has dropped down by the action of foot and not moved up.

After towing the polo to the garage, I have started to unscrew
 gearbox:

When I removed the box, a part of the clutch bearing fell out of the clutch casing, and at the moment I understood - clutch is wasted))

A new clutch kit was ordered, but components from different manufacturers:

clutch cover that was broken and which is broked out a clutch bearing is rightside:

Also have changed the bearing pilot and clutch release fork lever.

Then I opened the box to replace the second speed synchronizer assembly:

I also had to inspect the fuel tank neck, because fuel was leaking on parking place:

And so I again faced the limitation of 2Mb and now need to bow out, bye everyone.

You are doing good work Eskey.

 

I live in Johannesburg, South Africa and I bought my 1997 Polo Genesis about eight months ago without an engine and exhaust system. Just as in Russia, these Polos are scarce here in SA. I have been battling to find an engine since I bought the car.

 

It warms my heart when I see so much love go into a car as you have displayed and I admire your courage to take on a project such as this, knowing that you will face challenges due to lack of spares/parts.

 

Keep doing what you doing buddy. :thumbsup:

These are very pleasant and kind speech. Thank you bro.

 Everyone who shows his work on the its car will be happy with these words.

What is shown is not all the works that finished. Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time so that I can quickly present all the works that already been done.

Hi all, I continue my story about my smurf, last post I finished in the beginning of a story  fuel tank neck.
  Since I can't use a welding, I bought an epoxy repair kit, in which contains - fiber glass, and epoxy with hardener.
  Then using own hands I used that kit on the fuel tank neck.

The following work was performed on the handbrake system.

My handbrake was worked very bad, sometimes was not turn off, because a brake cable was old,

and from another car,  presumably from the Lada.

Some people very often offer me a solution in the form of replacing a faulty part with a part from a Lada,

I only think - you have bought a import car for make from its a lada))) No, I,m not like that))

 

Then after talking with good people, I made the factory handbrake fixtures.

So that was work, which I was made about the handbrake, because it's necessary joint.

Sorry me for my french))) I learning)) Bye Bye!!

Hi all, Happy New Year friends!!
  I want to resume a story of my smurf...

In the April of last Year, I found some elements of the cabin.

It was a very lucky case.

And first of that positions is... - we call it "door card", what is screwed to the door from the cabin.

  They are in excellent condition:

2.jpg.f0131bc6f8d21db3c0113a8534792607.jpg

  Also in my cabin was missing a central console, we call it a "beard")) and it was installed with new handle of gear lever:

4.jpg.5b7c283865ad7cd2768255c2e88e983f.jpg

Then I installed a damping ring on the shift rod or gear gate(I don't know how is correct call).

In advising to all - install this ring on autos, and you will see how it worksPart number: N 901 237 01

5.jpg.9cbd5fd1e494af4e715f2e02d4aed73f.jpg

In the underbonnet space was missing protective fan hood, which was installed:

And I have changed a link arms , because alignment technical assistant advised to me:

7.jpg.0e1c35fc0ce1e21c2913c46c1358664f.jpg

Link arms(left arm) which was Installed by previous owner , is adapted to tie rod of Audi B3, so it's some resourceful, I think so. But I don't started to find a new tie rod - because a silent block has lost its grip, and solution of this situation is replacement of the rubber detail, which is fundamentally out of stock...

"beard"  That's great. 😃

 

- "Do you have  VW Polo mk2 handbrake?"

- "No, but I've got a Lada handbrake in stock."
