MANIFOLD & CARB COOLING HOSES

Post by RussGLAuto » Thu Jun 24, 2021 3:42 pm

Afternoon gents,

I have replaced all but the four hoses in the engine bay. I'm looking for (!) the following items on the linked diagram:

3, 6, 7, 8, basically carb to manifold and manifold to metal pipe from the water pump. Engine code is FR 1.6.

They have gone hard and crusty and starting to bleed coolant :beg:

Thanks in advance!

The three hoses associated with the Pierburg 2e2 carburetor are available as a set (cheaper than buying individually) from B and B Components, manufactured by Topran. See,

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/222965494768

These are great if you have 10mm spigots on your autochoke and waxstat but are a tight fit if you have the 12mm variety.

Another option might be to obtain the correct internal diameter heater hose and use that if the bend radii do not have to be too severe. You can also get heater hose with a wire tracer which is supposed to be more readily bendable without closing up. It's horrible stuff to work with and although I bought some recently for another of my classics I quickly abandoned that plan and stuck with genuine OEM, which may also be an option through VW Heritage.

They look spot on thank you! :yahoo:

Not sure on the size of my wax stat sticky out bits but my 2B5 looks very close to the 2E2, if they are a tight fit then all the better, I'll take a chance.

I've been looking for days and could only find one from NK Automotive, none of the Heritage parts match the OEM part numbers unfortunately so was hesitant.

Save me a few quid too as you say. Owe you a pint Sir!

OK, but be aware they are for a different engine/carb so might not fit. You could do well to contact the supplier and see what they recommend. At least arrange to be able to return them if they are no good.

They did work a treat on my 2e2 setup though, and like you I’d been searching for ages.

I have used NK automotive in the past. They had several small NOS parts VW Classic Parts had run out of.
