First post on this forum it's the one I look on mostly so thought I'd register a account..

I've got a mk1 caddy which I'm restoring from the ground up and decided to go for a aaz conversion as its nice and easy for my first conversion

After searching and searching I finally came across a complete engine for sale for only £130 which I thought was fairly cheap considering I've seen it running in the car it came from,I've had the engine for a week now and decided to actually take a look at it when I discovered the fuel pump is electronic and not mechanical,first of all I thought I'd been ripped off and the engine wasn't aaz but after looking I've seen people say they are fitted to the later engines

So basically I want to know is it possible to convert a electric pump to mechanical, I've seen a few posts saying about chopping wires etc but didn't really fully answer my question or I probably didn't understand or should I just buy a mechanical pump and I assume it's a easy swap job, I'm replacing the Cambelt anyway

Welcome,there were no aaz engines with fly by wire pumps.what you may have is a late aaz with an immobiliser,it's possable to remove the plastic cover and connect the fuel cutoff wire directly to the stop soloniod

Just questioned the seller about it and they are now denying it was advertised as a aaz even though I have all the texts etc, shocking seeing as it came from a VW breaker

I’ve got a pump. It’s an AAZ not the best one in the world but powered my bus for 40k miles and was going strong when I removed it. I can get delivered to your door say for £70 all inc?

Thanks for the offer but it's not a aaz engine

The seller ( a VW breaker in holt Norfolk ) is refusing to give me a refund even though it was advertised as a aaz
