Re: Engine stalling/cutting out

Have you got & read the D-Jetronic workshop manual ? In there it explains the function of each component. Usual suspects on FI are wrong fuel pressure, faulty temperature sensors, bad electrical connections. The fact it starts when cold, then won't idle when warm would have me looking at electrical...

Re: Engine stalling/cutting out

FI Filter is clipped to the fuel pump, which is mounted to the front axle; it's a square plastic box. Item 4 in diagram at http://www.hallvw.clara.net/type3/T3pbo/T3pb1-70.htm . The normal inline round plastic filters are not suitable. I have a very few of the NOS ones. You could separate the hose ...

I'm no mechanic but it does sound fuel related, vacuuming petrol filler cap breather. Easy check remove the cap. Just a thought.
Starter the car yesterday with fuel cap off, no difference, same problem :tear:

Fuel filter/watery petrol?
Stock filter should be in spare wheel well, but follow the lines & see if some bugger has added another one?
It's relatively fresh (ish) petrol. The whole fuel system is new (Expect for fuel pump). New hose, new filter, refurbished fuel injectors.

How are you getting on? we haven't heard from you for a long time So, I've drifted off for a while, needed to stay away from the car. Got very depressed with it.

Re: Timing issues?

Thanks 937carrera I'm pretty sure it doesn't have a serrated washer (or any washer) under the screw for the points, so it's possible the plate could move I guess. I'll double check and give it a go. They are new points, I've also read I need to add a bit of grease on the lobe to reduce block wear on...

I've been off line for a while, the Type 3 build really took a lot out of me and I had to walk away from it again? Having solved the brake issue, the car was ready to go on it's maiden voyage a few months back. I hit 2 problems, 1. the rear suspension was too low to get off my drive :( 2. The engine...

Re: 1971 Fastback KBY 217K winter 2016 tidy up

Just to update this thread with the brake progress, I've sourced and fitted a Porsche 944 master cylinder. Re-made all new front brake lines. Bled the brakes and now waiting in anticipation for it to be all ok. So far so good. :D :D :D :D https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1729/42138787324_832274e621_c....

Re: Master cylinder fluid leak

So it seems to have behaved itself overnight. Today I've drained the rear most gravity line and extended it so that is snakes around avoiding the tie rod. I hope this doesn't affect the way it all operates. re-filled and then re-bled. All good so far. I'll keep an eye on it every day this week. If a...

Re: 1971 Fastback KBY 217K winter 2016 tidy up

I can only assume that it's replaced a standard bracket that was rusty?? And that was all a previous owner could find.

Any ideas where I could get a standard bracket from? Danny doesn't have any.
