Nothing on this part mentioned in Progressive Refinements. What I recall is that there also was a difference in the clamps for the conduit. If the front facing piece had a nut on the end it was later ...

The 113 M uses the earlier short cap and rotor while the 113 T uses the later taller cap and rotor. If you are shopping for tune up parts it matters.

PostForum: Performance/Engines/Transmissions   Posted: Thu Sep 16, 2021 11:31 pm   Subject: Re: Thermostat Life expectancy
At VW events looking at the "Show Cars", I always try and estimate the percentage with flaps, much less a thermostat.

It's usually in the low single digits..


I do the same with distr ...

The site chart shows the 113 M for 1968 and the 113 T for 1969-70.

Agree with all of the above except that numbers matching with a 30 PICT 2 carburetor would have been a 113 905 205 M distributor. The only real difference being that the 113 M uses the short cap and r ...

It would be highly unusual for that engine to have been built back up as a 1300. Check with the builder that it's not a 1966 case built up as a 1600.

If it's truly a 1300 I would run the stock c ...

Yes, the notches are in different places so the distributor will need to be re-indexed and re-timed for the new distributor. Your friend went from a dsitributor that delivers 32 degrees of vacuum only ...

The same situation applies to distributors. Most have a date code but it's not hard to come up with one that's not. Could be they got stamped and the stamping machine didn't strike hard enough. I high ...

It's not unusual for the VW/Bosch world to use different distributors in different parts of our world. I probably have a core for you. PM me if you'd like.

I agree completely with the above except that the 113 T distributor can manage a little more than 50mm/Hg more like 80 mm/Hg. I will proclaim absolute unadulterated BS on "Go big or go home" ...

Awesome, So according to the charts there the 0213137035 Which is the one that showed up shows 32*-35* so this should be timed at 0*TDC @ 850-950RPM and I should throttle up and see where it advances ...

the first SVA distributors used by VW delivered around 20 degrees of advance and would be static timed at 10 dgrees BTDC. Next VW went with a vacuum canister that delivered @c 25 degrees and was stat ...

I like using the old hardware. They feel so much more substantial if you will. Wrenches and sockets fit them much tighter. For some reason, a lot of the new hardware seems to be a tiny bit smaller, an ...
