    Hi all, hoping someone can help. Yesterday I fitted a new mechanical fuel pump (100mm push rod version) on my 1600 tp. Added two gaskets on top of the plastic flange. Rod sticks up about 1mm at lowest and 5mm at highest which from what I’ve read seems ok. Connected up a pressure tester (albeit...

    I fancy having a go at making a fuel tank for my Fastback. Was thinking 2mm ally. I've got limited aluminium welding experience, just enough to know it's tricky if you don't do it full time. Type 3 fuel tanks are also a fairly complex shape so I'll need to do quite a bit of templating... beyond...

    Hi guys and gals, So the fuel gauge in my 1976 beetle shows that I have half a tank when in fact it is empty. Is there a way that I can adjust it at all ?? Apologies if this has been posted before. Thanks in advance. Jack

    Hi Chaps I have just rebuilt the Solex 30 Pict3 carb on my '73 1200 Beetle. It's been running beautifully for the last 3 weeks but has developed a leak on both sides of the main throttle butterfly spindle. :confused: I can't recall there being any seals in the rebuild kit and I can't see any...

    I'm just getting the last few parts to put twin DRLA 36's on my stock 1600. I understand that the way to run fuel to DRLAs is to go from the pump to either 8mm tube on the banjo of the left carb: Then from the other pipe on the banjo, run a line to the 8mm pipe on the banjo on the right...

    Beetle had been running beautifully until I came back from Isle of Wight in August. Now when I start it the engine misfires when I rev it a bit and there is often a bit of white smoke too. Stinks of fuel, then after it warms up it seems fine, however appears to be using a lot of fuel. Could this...

    Guys, Ok - installed a pair of Dellorto 40 DRLA carbs with one side manifold bossed. Got the thing idling well (after a rough "by ear" balance) with good response when booting the pedal stationary. However, big performance issue when driving it - seems ok in 1st if i'm not too heavy on the...

    Hi all, Could anyone tell me if it is possible to remove the fuel tank without having to remove the engine first? I have a '73 bus with a type 4 engine running twin dellorto 40 DRLA carbs! Cheers

    Howdy, treated my car to a new gadget which looks very nice except it doesn't seem to want to work! i've wired it up as per the instructions and have already had the tank drilled and have been running a KG tube sender with a VDO gauge that was fine - apart from on corners which made it freak...
