Re: Type 3 twin solex carbs

Yeah, as far as I know these were only ever fitted to 1600 and 1500S type 3s. So are worst you might have to swap a jet or two over. Hes currently on holiday. It was a bit of a stale mate as he wants offers and you wanted a price. I managed to get him to suggest a price of £75 for the pair if youre ...

Re: 1971 VW Type 3 Fastback

A little while between drinks, mostly the same and same and same. So there arent many photos to show. Its just been a case of shaping up. My first focus was this little number on the front end. https://0a5wra.am.files.1drv.com/y4mFUu_3pfNvXiuNA5sUgfn53f6xhPgRY5gG0wrKmAhjeSVd2N8jjkHKz1A83Edp7YIVwHCRW...

Re: carbs whats the best

On a stock engine? I'd stick with the standard carbs to be honest. We'll sorted standard engines will happily do 70mph. If you want more power then its best to consider the engine as a whole. Each part works either every other. Changing the carbs alone may get you a couple of hp. But something like ...

Re: lowering

The inner spline is 29 teeth and the outer is 31 teeth so there is a nice vernier movement to be had of 5 minutes. So you can adjust it this way, or you can move the outer 1 spline. Which i seem to recall works out at about 1 inch at the end of the trailing arm.

Hope this helps

Re: Ignition/starting issue

If the new bush has worn out so quickly then id have a guess that there is play in the starter motor causing the issue. Have you checked the earth connection on the gearbox? More critical that ever on a 6V system. I don't think your ignition mods are at fault as the starter is getting the signal fro...
