    Twin Weber 44 IDF Carburettors fitted to my 1972 VW campervan back in 2009 but over spec'd for the engine so recently replaced with 40's. In this time the campervan has probably only done 8000 miles so they are in good condition. See the attached calibration photo for setup, any questions just...

    I am fitting a pair of 40 IDFs to my camper's stock Type 4 2L. I want more power but I also want to keep it as quiet as possible. I have heard about intake vibrations being damped by unifying the intakes so I am wondering why I shouldn't keep the stock dry air filter? (This has the additional...

    Does the fuel pip need to be the same length on twin carbs after it exits the Y piece? Think it does, but just want it clarifying!! Cheers, Goose

    I can't stop my twin solexs popping on my square when i rev it. They are fine on idle, but i can hear slight popping from the exhaust. Its mostly the left carb but the right one does it also. Its a stock 1600, timing is at 0 TDC, valves are spot on. I lapped them in but i did notice a bit of...

    1) So, where it best place to put the coil now that the standard location is obscured by the hex bar? Whats the best orientation for the coil - pointing down I guess, as before. 2) Twin Weber 40IDFs, have one obvious fuel input on each, so do I need a Tee piece in the fuel line from the pump? TA

    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?

    I have bought some new bugpack manifolds for my Kadrons but the length of rubber tube that came with them is too short. Can i use a normal peice of hose or does it have to be anything special? Can't use the pipe that came off the original manifolds as the diameter of the new pipe is a lot bigger...
