    I also backed the fuel off half a turn as I was concerned by the amount of smoke it was throwing out. The backing off of the fuel has had no noticeable effect on it performance. I really need to measure the boost as I haven't a clue what its at. 4 turns up from standard.

    Replaced perished pipes at fuel filter, left out the plastic T piece for the spill pipes and instead used the return banjo off the Golf pump. Click image for larger version

ID:	268415 Finally got my head around the idle adjustments, it really does go well now. Went up Clows Top in 5th this afternoon. Most on here wont know it, its a 90 left then a straight but steep 2/3's of a mile to the summit 30mph limit on the top so I wont say what the ole tub was pulling but the yokel at the wheel had a rather big grin on his ugly mug.

    Found the reason for the "woolyness" on start up. It developed into it stalling/cutting out just after start up. Which over the last couple a days has got worse. Found that the fuel hose going from the filter to the tank, the one with the T piece for the return from the spill pipes in it was all perished and I guess leaking air as I noticed bubbles in the clear feed pipe to the pump.Have replaced this short pipe, got running and now left it till tomorrow night and see how it starts. Planning on replacing all the rubber pipes over the weekend now and soldering the temp sender multiplugs from the scrappy I got last week as the insulation is fecked on the ones on are engine loom.

    Has this now got the tweaked Reg pump fitted? If so, does it go a bit better now?

    Just another little update, it was a bit woolly when first started from cold. Put a bit more advance on the pump. Then this morning it fired up a treat.

    Because your temp sender is broke or the wire is - it assumes the engine is cold and give full glow.

    There's two sender elements in the temp sender one for gauge, one for glow relay. (blu/wht and brown wires IIRC)

    The fuseboard is a stock ce2, which was used on loads of stuff, there's a lot of info here: http://www.a2resource.com/electrical/CE2.html

    If you need wiring diagrams, post up what year it is and I'll see what I've got tomorrow evening.
    Tanks d.9 with fuse 15 replaced and the insulation repaired on the loom normal service has been returned.

    When its been left a few hour the glow light don't come on and quick off and on of the ignition and there it is. That's why I wondered if it was temp controlled.

    Yea my coil light occasionally doesn't come on. Not always from warm, sometimes from dead cold no light and not even 1 revolution of the engine to start!

Anyway I've found a lot of the wires under the bonnet succumbing to 20 odd years of exposure to oil and the elements and a lot of the insulation is perished. Disconnected and got the loom up on the slam panel, conduit removed I went through it and soldered in new wire where the insulation was knackered. Just need a trip to the breakers to get a 4 pin and 2 pin plug with good wire on to replace the plugs on the stat housing. Hope to harvest the mark 3 the reserve pump came from.Might not hurt to get as many plugs as I can while i'm at it. Thanks Hans for the call this morning, helped a lot mate. See you soon.

    Fuse boxes are a little random as there doesn't seem to be a conclusive diagram that I can find.
