It's not that bit that's the issue, it's the small rubber piece that goes from around a 10mm diameter down to maybe 5mm that split and was causing the leak. For now I've glued it together and seam sealed it as best as possible in the hope that works. The post was more directed to see if it was possible to delete the whole thing.

If you want to replace it, I'm sure I have a spare one somewhere, I'll have a look this afternoon.

Engine and Transmission / Oil pressure regulating valve

Hi guys,
Had a boost leak check and reportedly had a small leak from item 9 (https://volkswagen.7zap.com/en/rdw/polo+derby+vento-ind/po/1994-120/1/103-3000/)
I had a look and it's had some bodging done to it. The rubber hose that goes down and connects to what looks like a vacuum hose is split. This vacuum hose goes down beneath the inlet to what I guess is the idle stabilization valve? The other 2 lines go to the charcoal canister and what I think is the boost return hose. I'm not expecting to find any in good shape or a new one but is this necessary and possibly be deleted? Sure I've read about people deleting the charcoal canister and wondered if they did away with the rest?
To help, I've got a standalone ECU now and wouldn't have thought I'd need the idle stabilization valve. Any ideas in helping me clear up my engine bay and reduce potential leak issues.

Did you manage to find accralite rings then since you say here they are available?

Yes from omega as stated. Ended up buying some wossner for a good price from the lads that rebuilt my engine. So didn’t want to buy some rings for them.

Hi all. I have just bought a set of new rings for my Accralite pistons.
They are no longer made under the acralite name and are now part of omega pistons.
They are an off the shelf product as they buy them in from mpr you can buy from any piston company. if you are after the 77mm ones quote the code 1245 xx 77 and this is the spec of the rings.
Hope this help.
