    I am currently having problems with my 1300 '71 beetle with idling. I have been reading all the useful threads on here and have managed to keep it on the road. I am currently using the H30 31 PICT carb but have a 31 PICT/3 from a former beetle which I salvaged, I know it works fine from when I...

    :confused: ok so my '71 1300 bug is idling fast.:confused: it has a standard 30pict carb but with a flat pancake type filter on it and a 009 dizzy with an electronic ignition thingy in instead of points other than that completely standard. i set the throttle stop screw to just touching + 1/4...
