Re: Brake advice

For the correct hoses refer to this: http://www.vwtype3and4club.org.uk/partswap.php Heritage sell rear drums, but they are crap when compared to originals- I got new ones from Paruzzi, but they no longer have in stock https://www.paruzzi.com/uk/type-3/rear-axle-differential/rear-axle-rear-brake-drum...

Re: Correct way to fit Windscreen Rubber Insert Trim

Rubber onto glass
trim into rubber (but not joining piece)

Re: Carb help

2 possibilities- It could be that the Choke butterfly is fouling the acc pump jets (Little brass tube as you look down the throat), in which case, pop the top off the carb and reinstall with the butterfly in a horizontal position. Did you realign the choke element with the mark on the carb body? Onl...
