      They were definitely metal and no longer available new.
      Used is your only option.

      Also, they were sheet metal not plastic and required the US style non 5mph brackets to install correctly. Not the hydraulic style.
      There are some good hybrids.... The ones that burn gasoline and rubber!

      exactly the top I said. What is the name for you at? own name specific? did you hire a VW part number?

      if it is the only needed is very difficult. for he who sent for something like this to Germany :-(

      sorry I do not understand what do you say to me

      So now comes the bentley book. unfortunately, the motor JF nothing in it. only the 1.5 FX with carburetor. FX is the same as in the carburetor installed JF?

      Otherwise, the book schonmal top.

      I will now first all the ignition parts replaced but it's not so easy to correct share in Germany to find securities with the U.S.. proof is still not what I need ignition. have indeed found out that the fit Bosch 09005 and Bosch 09271, but can begin in Germany my parts dealer to anything. all the more difficult as I thought ...

      Should be the same carburetor.

      As for the ignition parts, the cap, rotor, and wires should be the same as what you can get.

      that's just for us not so easy in Germany. JF has the motor is given only in America. So you get VW any more info because he is too old. and in the attachments, the supplier is not available auto.

      I have slowly but now all together what I need for now. :-)

      Mostly the same parts as a euro 84 mk1.
      Carb maybe different.
      Toss the carb in the trash.

      Looks like an emissions item. To heat up the air going to the carburetor so that it produces less CO when cold.

      so yesterday we went forward a little. My first sand-blasted brake calipers.



      Paint has the same primer. the day is still black color and clear lacquer on it and is good. :-)

      first small parts pack gabs then yesterday too.



      I thought maybe one cares what I'm going as a daily driver :-)

      We don't have SEAT here. Or Skoda. Or a lot of other cars. Hell, we don't have half the VW lineup.

      the seat I bought as a cheap alternative to the Audi S3. Same engine, same axis, Same-dash, Recaro semi bucket seats. The Audi is with leather seats and wheel. but also about 5,000 € more expensive than used cars


      @watchxmexdie

      because of the bar you post :-)
      You say cool carb. do you have any of the data? possibly even replacement parts or a whole as a replacement when you no longer need?

      So before a new Air Filter, ignition wires, spark plugs, ignition distributor cap and rotor arm cleansed. see for yourself:



      It is equal to be searched. a bit of white smoke from the exhaust but that is after 3 years time was normal I think. she was launched at 2000 rpm, this I was then brought gas down to about 1000 rpm. but as he runs a little out of round one thinks of it because it rattles inside the dashboard.

      For now, I'm satisfied.
