Re: Carb options.

"ICT's are rubbish" Yes outta the box, but if you set them up correctly IMO they're far superior to overly complicated stock carbs. I've got the original oil pan on my ICTS (fits perfectly) and a stock looking linkage system which i had to build. That's one problem with the ICTS, the linkage system ...

Type 3 Deluxe window seals?

Trying to find a new set of deluxe window rubbers for my squareback, they're pretty hard to get hold of.

Found some in the states, but they are very cheap which questions the quality! Anyone got any experience with these or other recommendations?

Cheers all.... it's been a while B)

They are the three point seats , my question is are they the same as a beetle? they do look it but when I came to fit a beetle plastic side panel to one of the seats it was to short so i guess ...

Carb Setup?? Type 3 Solex 32 PDSIT's on a 1776

In the process of building a mild 1776 with a 110 cam for the Squareback. I'm really hoping I can get the stock type 3 carbs to work on it.
Anyone got any ideas on setup? venturis? jets? emulsions? e.t.c.

For 4-6k you should be able to get yourself a real "beauty".
