Help in Italy

Hello--I'm new to this forum but I need help.
OUr son-in-law is stationed in Italy (Air Force). He bought a well used 1989 VW Golf 1.6 gasoline engine with European Spec. It needs a new carburator and is not having any luck finding one. I was wandering if anyone could point us in the right direction?
Thanks a bunch!

Shouldn't this be in the Euro imports section?

Anyway, I've searched for it in the net, and I'm affraid it's not easy to find one.
I found two carburettors in Spain that could fit on that '89 VW Golf, but none of them belonged to a '89 Golf. One of them was in a 1.6 '93 Golf (a Golf III) and the other was in a 1.6 '91 Seat Toledo (Seat, as you probably know, is a VW brand and uses most parts from VW since last 80's).

To ask about 'em you can dial:
+34963813030 for the '93 Golf's
+34941216644 for the '91 Toledo's

The only problem is that they will probably answer in Spanish.

On the other hand, that carburettor, is it wrecked, or just damaged? It shouldn't be difficult to find a garage that can fix o re-build it.

Good luck.

ps: I guess Germany is the best place to find VW parts, and the net probably has the right answer to your question.

It cannot be so difficult. The instruction manual will tell me which pedal is the 'velocitator' and which one is the... 'deceleratrix' (by Mr. C.M. Burns)
May God bless those who have nothing to say and, furthermore, they keep quiet (by someone)
