    Hi all, I'm really struggling to get my tune up to stay just right on my 1973 Beetle 1500 dualport. Can get it pretty good when warm, but once the engine is cold, start up is laboured and idle seems slow. Should A go to no 5 as per pic or one of the other ports? Should these all be...

    Hi folks... I'm new to volkszone, and new to aircooled with a 72 beetle... It runs ok but has lack of pull at low rpm... So I wanted to change the ignition over to electronic to see if it helps. My carb is a solex 34 pict 3 and I'm trying to figure out if I can use a distributor that has a...

    Hi guys, Just thinking about replacing my distributor from a 009 to a standard Bosche with Vacuum Advance. Two questions: 1. Is it worth it? 2. Where do you put the other end of the vacuum hose(Or is there not one)? Thanks guys!

    Hi Volks! Have still some starting Problems with my 2lt bay. He does start but only after three attempts turning the key. My thinking is that he uses up way too much Battery energy for the start ups so after like one or two weeks using him as a daily driver to work and back (30miles all in...

    Hi, Just a quickie before i lay out my hard earned pence. Is there any variation in the quality of vacuum advance can replacements depending on where you buy one or are they all the same? I need the 2 screw type for 72 1600 bus. I was going to get it from gsf because they were cheapest but...

    Got hold of a SVDA dizzy to replace my flat spotted 009. It's an original bosch one. I've checked the code which suits my 72 bus. Can I check it for wear or are they fairly robust?? I ask because the drive dog on the bottom has a bit of rock in it on the pin that holds it and didn't know if...

    Hello chaps, I have just fitted points and condensor to the 009 dizzy in my Bay after the cheapo contactless setup that was fitted failed on me. The bus runs nicely and starts on the button but once warm seems to be idling quicker (at 1500rpm instead of 1000rpm ish). Can I assume that the...

    I am going to replace my 009 with a vac advance dizzy due to the typical poor running problems with the 34 pict 3 and an 009. Question is, which vac port due I connect the vac pipe to? My carb has not got one in the usual place but has what looks like 2 others, one on each side of the carb, and...

Firstly it needs a good service, i just drove it back and haven't done anything with it since. The fuel filter is going to get moved to under the tank, thats...
