PostForum: Beetle - Late Model/Super - 1968-up   Posted: Yesterday 7:18 pm   Subject: Re: Carb wont work?
My '60 bus came with an EMPI 34 PICT-3 that I couldn't tune. I found that the o-rings on the bypass and mixture screws weren't sealing so I replaced them. The carb now tunes up easily and runs much be ...

Never quite did it that way, but you will need the later bearing caps for the long axle tubes. They are a little thicker than the earlier caps, so I’m not sure if it may interfere with a 5 bolt drum. ...

Sound deadener on. 50 sq feet was just enough to do the roof and sides. Forgot when I ordered it I wasn't planning to put Kilmat on the floor and deck.

I'm running '66-'67 flipped spindles/brakes/torsion arms on my '60 beam with flipped '68-'79 outer tie rod ends.

I just got a '55-'67 adjustable tie rod from CIP1 and they're still too long. I had to cut 1¾" off the end with right hand threads, re-tap then cut a new slot for the clamp. I thought maybe the m ...

I've been running 4 oz. of DynaBeads in mine for several years now.

I'm running beads in my '60 bus and my '56 beetle. 'll never use wheel weights again.

When bleeding brakes with a dual MC start with the front brakes. Since the rear piston is what moves the front piston via the spring between them, if you do the rear first, you will have limited the m ...

Sounds like the hockey stick came out of the shift fork slots.

The head of the hockey stick is inside the transmission. It's what moves the selector forks to change gears. The nose cone is the front most bolt on part of the transmission. The front trans mount att ...

I doubt it's the clutch if you say when you let it out the bus starts to move - I don't think the clutch knows or cares what gear the transmission is in.

I would take a closer look at the rear coupler. Make sure the grub screws are tight and in their dimples on both the shift rod and the hockey stick end. Also, make sure the coupler itself is not comin ...

Hmmm, is the decklid a different color or is it just lighting?
