mk2 polo - Dome shaped crankcase breather source?

Recommended Posts

Spanner

I am currently in the process of rebuilding a small block 1.3, and am having trouble finding anywhere to buy the dome shaped breather that presses into the side of the block. I looked on vwheritage and ebay but had no luck. Does anyone have any idea where I might find one?

 

Thanks,

 

Jordan

First Welcome to the forum.

 

This is the part https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1983-9/1/103-2000/#9   eBay Germany is the most likely or put a Wanted advert in our Classified section https://www.clubpolo.co.uk/classifieds/category/8-wanted/  it free, someone might have an old engine laying around

Rottele sell an eye-watering expensive breather dome without a sieve intended for G40 or Turbo tuned cars and for use with an external oil catcher.

That is crazy money! Especially as it is basically just the original with a piece missing, but I may have no choice if I can't find a new original anywhere. A used one would likely not fit correctly into the block again so that options out really. I shall have to keep searching, thanks guys

That PCG number did come up on a US Porky site as a direct replacement for the VW 036 103 129

Early Porsche 924 engine block derives from old Audi 100 and VW LT van so it makes sense.

I've been known to clean them by chucking a litre of petrol though them then draining the oil. Not the ideal solution, but it seemed to work. 

 

If you do change it, you can fashion a fitting tool by cutting a keyhole shape in a bit of wood so it sits against the flange without crushing the pod, then use that to knock it in.
