    I am new to this forum and admittedly not mechanical. I am trying to learn as I am looking to drive from Afghanistan to Ireland (or as far as possible) with an old bug. The car is more or less original and apart from some cheezy photographs, unmolested. It needs some fixing up and it'll need...

    Taken off my mk1 Golf 1.6GL. Everything is working as it should. I've changed all vacuum pipes and auto choke works without any issues. As it's off the car it could do with a thorough clean just in case. The video shows the carb working in my golf yesterday before removing. Looking for £50...

    I've just replaced the throttle spindles on my Solex and as a result the idle is a bit buggered. I've tinkered a bit but don't know what i'm doing and i've put everything back as it was. The Haynes manual talks about CO levels and machines. Muir says leave it to an expert. The garage I take my...

    I have a 69 1500 beetle, basically it was facing problems of misfiring, backfiring, lack of power, cutting out etc. So changed the usual ignition system new leads, plugs, points, rotor arm, distributer cap. And was running fine for a couple of weeks then its happening again misfiring etc. so...

    being technically challenged on the subject :crazy:, I'm aware that adding a fuel injection system to an old dub is not a cheap option, but is it really a option worth consideration or saving up for, or are you better off in the long term with a decent set of twin carbs?
