PostPosted: Today 11:53 am    Post subject: PICT-30 choke terminal Reply with quote

Is there a slick/reliable fix for a broken terminal on a PICT-30 choke? I can figure something out, but imagine that someone here has done something clean. Just trying to save 28 bucks. Surprised

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


Also, is there a way to tell if this is indeed a 6V choke? I see that WW has a explicitly-stated 6V choke for a PICT-28, and a 12V choke for PICT-30 and up (haven't found a PICT-30 6V new replacement yet).

Thanks.

Here's an option: https://www2.cip1.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=VWC%2D113%2D129%2D191%2DH

Thanks! I hadn't made it to them...too many vendors.

Interesting that CIP shows part number 113129191H for PICT-28/30 carbs and WW shows it for PICT-28 only.

If I give up on my cheapo repair, I'll confirm.

Please do post your findings if you end up confirming that the CIP 6v choke fits the PICT 30. Replacing mine and was a little put off by WW’s reference to just the 28. Ended up going with a NOS item from someone here on the Samba after they were kind enough to take some measurements for me. Hoping it works, but if not, it would be good to know the CIP choke would fit.

Does the rivet spin at all?, if not (or if you can hold it) drill and tap for a tiny machine screw (~4-40", or metric?) to attach a new terminal. I've also seen some soldered on that seemed to work.

I had a contact broken off on the '74 Bay Window. Tried solder and drilling it. Likely spun it and broke it internally. Bought a new one, which is another story - bought two on eBay before getting the correct one. Works well now. I recommend just buying a new one if you can find the right one.

If you wire brush and clean the copper rivet and the broken brass piece really well then you could use a coil terminal cleaned and wire brushed real well and solder it to the rivet. Use a super hot gun and rosin core thin electronics solder. I'm betting it would last quite a while like that. The male prong needn't protrude the same direction i.e. topward would be fine.
