Wow just about got that done what a struggle doing that on a slope drive under the car. The worst bit was when I took the hoes off the external swirl pot- it must of had pressure as it was constantly pissing out like a river- my only advice if you do this is have a jerry can at hand and hope to god know one drives past and flicks a cig out the window. 

Managed it in the end- 32 years old factory fuel system removed. Crapping myself driving to the station after hoping she did not run out of juice- got there and filled up and happy to report pulling like a freight train - much better the whole lot was working at its lowest capacity - turn key is spot straight up pressure . 

Did my old hose hack part number.  357201311  + aba 13 or 14 clamps.  wink wink. Just look at the state of that blue hose.

Always nice to fit shiny new parts. I have done that to my mk2, both the covered in petrol  and swap. Reliability is priceless to us. 

Have you got an account with Classic parts yet? 😂

Not yet chap but would of made sense to before i purchased all this stuff as no doubt would of got a nice discount. 

I use mechanics in France now for classic orders as they only charge 5.50 for delivery- only on orders under £130.00 and then you dont get hit by import duty.

How the heck did you find out how to sort the French connection.... In fact if you are at Stanford hall tomorrow,  I may just find you and ask 👍

Yeah mate and only 2 weeks delivery from classics- some of the stuff comes in a week so highly recommend just keep it below the £130.00 - got some G60 vag boost hoses off them and other grubbings and so far highly impressed, 

Thinking of popping up mate but not on the club stand so car will not be on show ground- Im wondering if you can take dogs- if so I might pop up in my mk2 and take him for a walk ha.  

Think you can just turn up and £12 on the door? 

Cheers.

Only just seen this.... damn shame. I was there.  Disappointed that the CCGB was put to the side of the hall

And the weather seems to have been lovely everywhere, but there.... that fine rain 🤣 

Definitely the big turnout of all VWs although no mk2 golf soecific stand that I found. There was a nice golf rallye in the concourse 

Still a great day out. Our paths will cross 👍

Another time mate- I know the black Rallye you are on about what an absolute minter - I only stayed 2 hrs was under dressed for the occasion- absolute gash weather . 

One of my friends had a stinker with his rado  VR-  keys out of ignition - starter motor started spinning on its own with heat smoke coming out of bay- thank god someone had a 10 mm spanner to disconnect battery-  one lad reckons its the starter solenoid- just crazy - I imagine the starter and the fly wheel will be shagged as was spinning for at least 2 minutes- heat was crazy could of easily gone up in flames. Any ideas anyone ??? Car got towed away.  I was disappointed no mk2 stand.

Could be ignition switch?

Everyone with these cars should have a 10mm spanner stuck with velcro to the battery

The starter solenoid would still need to be energised so sounds like a short with the wiring. Could be a simple fix, but either way it must a scary thing to see when it randomly just happens and smoke starts spewing out of your engine bay! Always had a few handy quick tools in the glove box - just in case! 😆

This will be fun fitting all these - boost hoses all ready done - should hopefully eliminate  any nasty coolant leak roadside break downs or engine over heating the next few years as a daily . She has all ready had new gen sensors and and a new fan .

Hi, 

Please explain what you mean by "Did my old hose hack part number.  357201311  + aba 13 or 14 clamps.  wink wink", are you meaning you found a way of creating bent fuel hoses, ie is there a metal tube insert inside ?

Cheers,

George

No mate you can buy that hose all though after me posting it they seem to be obsolete no dealt fee been snapped up . 
 

 Another hack you can do is buy a s shape fuel line snd cut off the ends - Lupo has one .

Thanks mate a few more pictures to give an idea how cluttered in there it is for access - the side flange has a double thread bolt as it hangs pipes and also earth cable les . 
 

I use the oe clamps as they are the best but use ratchet straps next to water pump as access is horrific to try snd fit oe - I always keep stock clamps off breaker cars as some cost £10 new from Vw , so powder coat them .

Well spotted Geri - that guard is actually a late superseded part that came on the VR but if you have a late fuelling system which I guess you have its a direct fit and you can get rid of the metal bracket which is a liability for rust- its ready available form the dealers for £8 - its worth getting a couple whilst you can got mine last year UK dealer. 

Part number is.  1H0201505B

Hi, 

Re the main fuel line: 535201374A, I thought about getting one of these fuel lines, but as these are NOS the rubber section will be to the old standards, and will not be able to tolerate E10 fuel for very long, so that section will perish, so decided to just cut off the rusted metal swaged hose connector , and replace the rubber section on my original feed pipe with a E10 (and beyond) compliant hose , Cohline 2240 is what I have got, will be replacing all the fuel hoses with that (apart from the in tank fuel pump hoses which require submersible tolerant fuel line, am using Cohline 2190 for these).

That makes perfect sense, future proofing. 
What did you make of that Keyo, ooo what to do. 
I was happy to not have crusty rubber pipes

I think cohline is ok but more of a ebay retail champion- seen a lot of horror reports of that brand  from the Porsche community but not as respected as the Danish brand Codan which is the oe supplier to many - I only put E5 in mine as  only use 98 octane as prescribed by VW - I believe a lot of the hoses are actually e10 compliant from what I have read on a corrado- the most damaging part of it is letting a car sit with it as rots out the pump and blokes injectors . 

I believe if you use cohline you want this stuff not sure never really looked into the brand - just saw bad reviews. Cohline DIN 73379 Type 3E
