mk 1 16v fuel pressure regulator

Post by mac1776 » Tue Aug 13, 2019 12:25 pm

Hi All,
I bought a used regulator only to find it is corroded on the casing and is leaking fuel, not ideal.
If anyone has a good one leaking in their shed/loft please let me know
Many thanks
Mac

Try googling any part numbers you can see on it, usually gets results
Don't think Another s/h one is a good Idea I suspect after 30 odd years a lot of them will be on their last legs

Can you use an aftermarket one if you don't have any luck? For example Malpassi (who are known mainly for low pressure carburettor regulators) probably do an adjustable one for the high pressure required in a fuel injection system.

If its a Bosch unit you'll prob find they are still available new from Bosch direct. They are a fairly standard thing so sourcing one shouldn't be too hard.
