Is the thermostat supposed to be under the passenger side or driver side cylinders?


Looks good. Thermostat is under passenger side cylinders, here's how it looks with the rod:

The cross bar will have to come off as you drop it onto the engine over the oil cooler and then you can put it right back on.

I hooked the spring to the little hole in the corner of the doghouse as so:

Engine Back in!

Todo:
- fuel lines with "T" and filters for dual carbs (pressure gauge?)
- Dual Carbs
- fresh air hose (the galvanized flexible steel tubing you see sitting on the bumper)
- attach Heater hose cables.
- attach accelerator cable
- attache thermostat and mount
- Exhaust manifold
- New breather hose (both pieces and i'll probably need an adapter as the fan shroud outlet is in a different spot)

Hope to have it all done by Friday!

Awesome! Can almost hear it running.

I put a Holley fuel pressure regulator on my dual EPC 34 carbs. Here's a link to that page of my build if you want to see what was involved. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=...;start=120

In the beetle threads they are always harping on people for having a fuel filter in the engine compartment (fires or something) so I put mine down by the transmission where the gas line comes out of the body.

Update time!
- fuel lines with "T" and filters for dual carbs (pressure gauge?) Purchased, Ready to Install
- Dual Carbs Ready to Install
- Carb Studs & Nuts Purchased, Ready to Install
- fresh air hose (the galvanized flexible steel tubing you see sitting on the bumper) Done! (galvanized was not flexable enough to get past muffler, had to use aluminum)
- attach Heater hose cables. Done!
- attach accelerator cable Done!
- attache thermostat and mount Done!
- Exhaust manifold Done!
- New breather hose (both pieces and i'll probably need an adapter as the fan shroud outlet is in a different spot) Purchased, Ready to Install, just need adapter to mate hose ends

Left To Do:
- Get an adapter to mate to two charcoal canister hoses (old one coming thru firewall is stiff and won't bend to new outlet on Later year Fan shroud, so some new hose and an adapter should solve that problem)
- Route fuel lines with filters and secure them
- Secure balance tubing

- Install Carbs
Ok stupid question time, I am installing rebuilt Kadron's from what I can see there is absolutely no difference between the two. Is there a Driver Side and Passenger Side Carb or are they interchangeable?

Hey Gang! Just gotta run fuel lines and install carbs.!

Got a question first. The fuel vapor hose that goes from the side of the fan shroud thru the firewall and to the canister mounted behind the passenger rear is brittle as heck and I'm replacing it. I see the small fuel vapor line that I assume comes from the gas tank, and the larger hose from the fan shroud/firewall. There is a third larger hose that exits opposite side of canister and heads back toward the firewall but then just dead ends, not connected to anything. Am I just venting fuel vapor to the area behind the firewall, and is that dangerous?

My thanks all,
-sjhotz

This one goes to the air-cleaner on the carb(s) so the engine sucks up and combusts the fuel vapor that evaporates from the charcoal canister.

Edit: Since you are running duals, I have seen people plug into just the passenger side air-cleaner. If you are interested here is a link to the page of my thread where I monkeyed something together to use both carbs. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=...;start=140
