Actually the earliest vacuum advance distributors didn't have the sheperds crook vacuum advance line. They learned from experience that it was needed later on in production. Sometimes being 100% accur ...

The data tables show that 1968-74 distributors for type IV are capable of being installed in a type I case but in no way are those distributors compatible with a type I engine and it's fuel delivery o ...

Good example of a correct original engine there, Bill. Folks need to take note of the fuel line from pump to carburetor without a filter. Bill's and mine are the only I've noticed recently being run ...

My comment above was not meant as an endorsement just a statement of my experience. I too can endorse the 40 hp bus as an option especially since that's what you've got. Get what you have in good tune ...

I would stay with the 30 PICT series carburetors, a bit simpler to tune than the 34 PICT 3. The other reason for staying with a 30 PICT is that your choice of distributors is much better. The late 196 ...

430-1 is the automatic trans carburetor for California so you have a factory match for the 043 905 205 A and SVDA- lucky you. I wouldn't worry too much about the auto trans thing it's probably a diff ...

Let me clarify:

The ZV/PAU 4 R 6 was used on 1961-1962 type III. The 0 231 139 006 was the service department replacement for the above distributor. Both of these are "big cap" 90mm cast ...

Those are both 1973-1974 stock distributors and SVDA's. The 170 034 is originally installed on manual trans Beetles in the 49 states- ironically not California. The 170 036 was originally installed o ...

Glenn's information is contradicting itself. He shows a pic of a big cap and then says the tune up parts are the same as a "205 K'. Your pics are poor enough that I can't tell for certain whethe ...

I agree with Glenn's assessment on the use of wire clips over the spring steel cap clips. There doesn't seem to be any firm date. There has been extensive discussion in the past on this topic in the f ...

With regards to the advance tables above, the changeover appears to be July/August 1955. This corresponds to a change in vacuum canister design that is recognizable. The early style canisters had the ...

What was the point of this?

You changed to a newer condenser and one piece points but the original parts are readily available. And the C clip is just a change no reason.

EVFun, where did that data table you posted come from? Looks to be old factory parts/repair manual but I've never seen one with the intermediate advance data before.
