Brake hose collapsed due to age. New vs old.
Dwighia
Old brake hose, maybe original from '68 Ghia.
No wonder my brakes were not working.
Please change yours!!

Constricted Brake Hose - '68 Ghia

Constricted Brake Hose - '68 Ghia
Dwighia
Pix of the rear brake hose on a '68 Ghia showing constriction from age. The diameter remaining is less than a paper clip/needle. Found the issue by jacking up the rear of Ghia on jack stands and attempting to stop the wheels from turning using just the rear brakes. There was virtually NO braking with these old crappy hoses. (so no wonder my fronts were locking up!)

Thank you Samba-folks who advised to change these hoses even though there is no apparent aging visible from the outside.

Fuel starvation, vapor lock, bubbles in fuel filter

Fuel starvation, vapor lock, bubbles in fuel filter
Dwighia
'68 Ghia was stalling on a hot day. The gas in the fuel filter was bubbling, almost boiling. The cause is the metal fuel line resting against the pre-heat tube on the carb manifold and getting very hot. My laser temp gauge show 144 f on the fuel filter and 143 f on the fuel pump. Rectified by moving the metal fuel line.

Wish I could post the video of the bubbling fuel filter

Door Rubber on Ghia
Dwighia
I have this little metal clip that was buried under the door rubber on my '68 Ghia. Assuming it is there to secure the rubber as it makes a little jog to follow the door lines.

Pix of a 2-V-notch pulley where the two V's seem to line up with the 7.5 and 10 degree marks. From a GEX rebuild around 1998 (number H5551806), which I believe makes it a 1968-69 1500cc single port engine.
