Re: Auto choke adjustment

It's attatched to the side of the carburettor by three screws.
It has coolant pipes and a switched live feed wire attached to it

Re: Stalling after throttle release

Dear me, such dedicated investigation and still no result. All I can add from experience is an air leak is a bugger to find. It certainly reads like one. Or certainly a weak mixture, which has been checked I assume. I haven't seen the brake booster and distibutor mentioned as they also run on vacuum...

I was under the impression it was 0.4mm but Ill wait to see what others suggest also.
Well as the T25 wasn't fitted with points there's no specification as such.
If its running well then leave the gap as it is.

Re: Idle probs

The fast idle mechanism and the choke are adjustable. If the carburettor has been separated from the autochoke and not returned to the same position then it will need to be reajusted. The Autochoke housing has three screws. Once undone the choke duration can be increased or decreased. (Clockwise dec...

Re: Idle probs

The cable should be free to move with no resistance. If the accelerator cable is sticking or not free, and with further investigation it is found that the pedal mechanism moves freely but the cable is not, then it should be renewed, not oiled or re routed, but renewed. The carburettor cable linkage ...

Re: Idle probs

The choke is operated by a bi-metalic spring. As this spring heats up from the engine coolant and electric heater, it unwinds and a shaft it is attached to opens the choke. (Takes a 6-8 mins from fully shut) To facilitate an easy cold start the shaft includes a fast idle mechanism. This and the chok...

Re: Clacky Engine on starting - Newbie asking

10w/40 synthetic oil is too thin
Use 15w/40 or idealy 15w/50

Change it every 6 months.
Then the clacking will stop or get less.

It's not character its a sign of neglect.
These engines like to be used not sit.
And they like oil changes.. lots of them.

VW made that easy to do too.

Re: Engine Swap - DG to DJ

Cheers Steve, Nothing wrong with the water pump on the replacement dj, just that the plumbing is different. I want to retain the oil cooler, however i note that the thermostat housings are different on the dj as the DG has no inlet for the outlet hose from the oil cooler. I have been advised that y...

If you wound them in 1.5 turns from touching they will definitely not be set correctly as there should be a gap between them...
Mis-information is as bad as no information.
Hydraulic lifters require preload.
