      Start by setting the sensor plate height. The mixture screw could be the cause of your grief.

      Have you set the sensor plate height? How long does it run before stalling out? Are you able to keep it alive with the throttle?

      Ideally, system pressure should be between 75-80psi. Cold pressure is fine. What's the warm pressure?

      If you can find a 2 pole switch at the store, it'll be fine. You need a momentary, normally open switch (NO); be sure it's rated for the proper amperage.

      You have 2 switches because you have 2...

      I'm guessing your car is a Westy? If so, you'll need a German booster.

      Back in the day, I would pull the mc and booster from a 16v S2 and bolt the combo on. As long as you pull the booster from...

      There's a step on the shock piston that the upper spring hat sits on. I have a feeling that the upper spring hat gave way and the piston blew through it.

      Lol...

      Anywho, factory fogs are pretty useless. The lens will always crack, even if you don't use them. Both of my B4s have fogs and I rarely, if ever turn them on.

      I went and looked at my spare evap box; the solenoid is missing. looking at it, it would appear that the solenoid sits in a cradle and strapped in, somehow.

      Are you referring to the vacuum solenoid mounted at the p/s footwell?

      If so, I believe I've done it before. I think I bought a B4 where it was missing and swapped a spare on.
