Hi does anyone know the proper location I should place my decals on my 67 vw beetle, Valve adjustment, tire pressure, jacking procedure.

Thanks Jim

I don't think they came form the factory with a valve clearance sticker. Most place it on the fan shroud near the oil filler. You can probably get a good idea form the galley photos.

Tire pressure was on the gas tank near the filler neck. Probably shown in the owners manuals here in the Technical section.

Never seen a jacking procedure sticker.

This is from a 1967 sales brochure FWIW. These pics were not always totally uptodate and accurate but there does seem to be a valve clearance sticker on the shroud. https://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/lit/67changes/page1.jpg

I owned 2 ‘67s. I found this pic I took in 1972. The engine was original to the car. The stickers didn’t standup very well. At that time they would have shown .004 clearance. The air cleaner in this pic doesn’t appear to be the correct ‘67 style. I always assumed it was changed before I bought car. Not sure why.
Loved that ‘67 zenith blue. It had heat that actually worked and that 1500cc seemed so powerful compared to my previous bug - a ‘59 36 hp with j-tubes(heater boxes removed.) Luxury it seemed.
