  1. I'm using chrome and i got an extension to fix photobucket links on someone elses suggestion, it works well. Just search for chrome photobucket fix extension and a few will show up. Pretty sure other browsers will have similar by now.
  2. engine rpm. vacuum leak, flakey vaccum pump or flakey servo most likely. As the vacuum leak is a free fix look for that 1st, either the small vacuum pipes or the fat one off the servo which is prone to rubbing and going brittle.
  3. 14 inch steel wheels

    8 inch banded baby g60s but i wont be posting.
  4. Options for GTI tyres

    Do the GTIs rub on 50s because of the extra track width? 50s work great on other Lupo if not too low.
  5. Options for GTI tyres

    My bad, forgot GTI was supposed to be 205 tyre.
  6. Options for GTI tyres

    I'd go for 50s as they are generally cheaper and give a less harsh ride. 45s https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-x-195-45-15-R15-78V-Toyo-Proxes-T1-R-T1R-Road-Track-Day-Tyres-1954515/311132429401 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-NEW-195-45-15-NANKANG-ULTRA-SPORT-NS-2-78V-TYRE-195-45R15-4-TYRES/251166335943 50s https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-x-195-50-15-R15-82V-Toyo-Proxes-T1-R-T1R-Road-Track-Day-Tyres-1955015/301338421271 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-NEW-195-50-15-NANKANG-ULTRA-SPORT-NS-2-82V-TYRE-195-50R15-4-TYRES/260936843102
  7. CJ1's Red 1.4 TDI Sport

    Good work, this reminds me I really need to get off my bum and get on with mine. Red one still marooned in garage with no engine or box in it, black one i'm driving and MOT due soon. Was planning on getting red one on the road and driving it then getting black one finally sorted out, but being an olympic level procrastinator plans and results dont often match up.
  8. Misfireing issue

    just look for widely different pressures, but when i briefly had a 1.0 it was 160psi (or near as damn it) on all 4, 10 seconds cranking wide open throttle with all plugs removed. Anything under 120 would be of interest.
  9. Engine Converted Lupos

    That is nice, any more pics of it and do you want to sell?
  10. Lupo Gti for sale

    Can you please re do the pic hosting and tempt me some more with this GTI? Dont suppose you want rid of your blue one too do you?
  11. Rear drums stuck on

    What he said. http://workshop-manuals.com/volkswagen/polo-mk3/brake_systems/brake_brake_mechanics/repairing_rear_brakes_drum_brakes/releasing_brake_shoe_adjustment/
  12. Rare 2001 Lupo 3L 1.2 Tdi Manual - Now Fixed

    It was on ebay after this and then add title changed to "deposit taken" so i'd guess it sold. Quite a few sign up here just to flog a lupo, so they have no interest here once that is done.
  13. Seat Arosa 1.0 to 1.4 TDI Conversion

    Park up the 1.0 for another time and drive the tdi, you get the best of both worlds then.
  14. Rare 2001 Lupo 3L 1.2 Tdi Manual - Now Fixed

    I got response but no history with it so lost interest.
  15. Pressure of cylinder

    1:135psi 2: 142psi 3: 121psi 4: 149psi 10% is a reasonable difference, cyl 3 looks low so redo the test before worrying about anything. As said, if it runs happy and has plenty of power I wouldnt be too concerned about it.
