Off Topic,Wanted Bosch Part no longer available

Post by Polarsilver »

Off Topic ..Wanted Auxiliary Air Valve with Bosch Part Number 0280140148 /or can have differing last three numbers in the part number
This Bosch Cold Start Valve is used in the air intake on many 1980,s cars from Ford,Porsche, Vw Audi.Volvo,Ferrari etc. cars supplied with Bosch K-Jet Fuel Injection.. unfortunate this item is No Longer Available anywhere other than something dodgy ..so i thought it is worth asking on the Mk1 Forum as someone may have such?

This is just one example of no longer available parts from mainstream suppliers & just shows how fortunate we are with the availability of early Mini Parts.

Look also for 0280200149, the Bosch interchange number.

These valves can be swapped over and made to do the job. The ones I know of are:

0280 140 134 BMW E21/E30 318i with K Jet, BMW 13631274695

0280 140 100 320i and 520i 4 cyl K Jet 75-77 13631357891

0280 140 118 E21 323i, BMW 13631267488 / 11531288029 / 11531278914

0280 140 164 Audi 80/Coupe

0280 140 112 Golf GTI 1600

0280 140 132 Ford CVH

I have the old Bosch parts books.
