      most of em have a dodgy idle. switching off my a/c seems to fix it, lol. so many things that can cause it, pain in the ass. could be a vacuum leak somewhere. is the vacuum reservoir connected? it's a weird round shaped thing in the fender on the battery side, there's a light green vacuum hose that runs to it. i've got the front of my car off at the moment and just noticed that it's not connected. the hose has broken off and someones put a screw in the end of it. yet to connect it back up and see if it helps at all. will let you know if it works.

      Hey Josh. I am tim's brother/mechanic that gets paid in solving problems
      So do I have to take the side fender off to get to this? Or is it easier to take the wheel off and the wheel lining out and go in that way?
      I have always wondered what that green hose did!
      Cheers

      hey. is yours not connected too?
      i've got the front bumper off atm, so i got at it from the front. it sits directly under the battery. you might be able to get your arm at it from underneath. i'll have a look tomorrow. here's a pic of someones car, it's in that fender cavity in the bottom right hand corner. http://i20.photobucket.com/alb...8.jpg

      I recently added a turbo to my 76 mk1 8v as I was bored & for the sake of it


      Doesn't go too bad on low setting's & stupid on high, but its a temperamental old mole on high!
      Converted it all in under 2 weeks.

      Not to be left out....
      I had a Mk1 golf once, an 'L' with a stonking 1.1 donk, 4 speed, no rev counter, vinyl seats, crap brakes, plenty of rust, and a shiite snot green colour. It would barely get to 120 with a tail wind.
      The best think about it is if I recall early the courtship exploits that it facilitated. It was only 25 years ago when I was 16.....
      How did I get this old? why am I still driving a golf?

      Well I had it with Julian today and we tried to balnk it off by squeezing the pipe but it didn't change so I am pretty sure it's ok.
      We even had the ECU to check for damage and also tried it with a spare working one, still no luck.
      I think it's gonna never idle (without the A/C on) proper so just learn to live with it or never stop. One of the two

      The time has come to sell my wagon, I have moved in to a townhouse and the car has been stored at my mums house in her carport. Circumstances have changed where she is unable to store the car for me anymore (She is getting married and moving house - Congrats mum!) and I don't have anywhere to store the car any more. So time to let it go for someone to enjoy it.
      The car has had the rust repaired in the floor pan. The body isn't completely straight, the major being a dent in the rear panel just near the rear lights as you can see in the pictures. The rubber seals aren't in the best condition.
      - Will come with 3 months ACT rego
      - 1600 twin port, nice strong engine
      - No gear box noise
      - Disc brakes up front. Drum brakes in the rear
      - 12 V
      - Swing axle rear suspension
      - Extractors
      - Salt n Pepper Interior
      Extras: Comes with mo (chrome lip on bonnet) and bamboo under dash shelf not installed Can supply a ratty roof rack if wanted.
      Car is located in Canberra.
      Price $4200ono
      Contact Liam on 0411 682 377 or email liam (at) swelldesign.com.au (without spaces and replace at with @... you know the drill)
      if you call this weekend 4/5/6 September I may not answer as I will be out watching the World Mountain Bike Championships.

      You left your cap on the aerial.
      So, new batteries (think I know the answer to this) am I better of just getting an NRMA number and saving any hassles, or trying to buy one at Repco when I go there tomorrow for some goodies.

    25. 10-11-2009 06:00 AM #50
      Start a poll. Only definitive way to find out the answer...
      I would try and get one from a battery shop. More range, better choices, better prices and you dont have to deal with an NRMA chump. Also if said battery goes wrong, you can take it back. With NRMA, you would have to wait for them to come out again....
