Going to resurrect this thread.

It's a little over 17 years in my ownership, just picked up a spare charger which I'm going to rebuild.

That's only a little bit longer than mine's been sat in the garage. :-\

i *think*  i might have sorted it

had all my meters set up and tinkering around in the bay while the readouts settled , i happend to wiggle the injectors , now its idling fine with a normal exh note and good readouts on the emissions with the afm close to standard   

so guessing an o ring wasnt seated, not sure how its played up for so long , its had 3 seperate sets in it , manifold off at least twice ,sprayed carb cleaned around em, unless its coincidence and ive touched something else , but it did point towards an airleak all along

Hello,

Yes this Polo is with vented disc:





In 1989, cars weren't catalised. It's the reason why à G40 MK2 give 115 hp and a G40 MK3 (built in 1991) give 113 hp with the same engine (code engine PY)

See you

Hello,
yes more photos please ...of all the rare /differant parts

i notice its got a cut out on the front panel

Yes, the cut out on the front panel is made to get the access to the "G".

By this way, you can streach the belt of the G charger, or do the other things you need to do on.









See you.

Franck

welcome!  Always amuses me how many people sell G40s and then buy another one because they miss it so much.

You can fit a 22mm master cylinder but it wont make much of a differnce, just reduce pedal travel.  More useful when you've put bigger calipers on.

I'd probably start by giving the brakes an overhaul, they aren't that bad when they're in good order.  New brake fluid, decent set of pads.  Also strip down, clean up and rebuild the rear drums, these often get neglected but will make the whole braking system crap if they're not working right and adjusted properly.

I guess also make sure it actually has g40 brakes on it too I guess, these are still 239mm but with vented discs.  The non-vented ones overheat and fade really quickly.
