You're doing a beautiful job with your bus. Just a suggestion but I'd return the Chinese carb and get one of Tim's restored German Solex carb. They are as good as new when he's done.

I'm trying to keep my VW's as German as I can for as long as I can! Wink

man I could have used that about a week ago. I did mine with loose ball bearings and it was so annoying. Went through 8 to end up with 4 halfway decent ones.

I can attest to the Chinese carbs being a pain. Bought a new Empi for a 1600 SP years back and couldn't get the engine to run smooth nor idle. Turned out the brand new carb was full of metal shavings from manufacturing. Just recently got a rebuilt Solex from Tim at Volksbitz. Beautiful restoration...better than new.
