I used to autocross a Karman many years ago, several hotrod street built a great Baja and even hot-rodded a microbus so I have some experience and a of warnings.

One: if you’re a SINGLE Webber or Dellorto look quite similar) of running #3 piston lean and the piston or the frying the valves (I did twice with a single-Dellorto 1776 motor). If you really to run a Webber or Dellorto, use two — small carbs — and with the balancing issues.

If you can one, a Holley ‘Bug two barrel works great! to tune, lots of power, as a stone — the only is that is ‘fogs’ above the mouth so you need a tall air You might also be able to a Webber/Pinto two barrel and intake for the same and they’re pretty to use — less power the Holley. There are also carbs for a two barrel manifold, nice carb, has an ‘enriching rather than a choke you can change everything like the but parts are harder to find in the US.

How big is your engine? 1500, 1641, 1776, 1835, Is it cammed-up or stock? What’s the ratio — 1.1, 1.4, 1.5? Do you have stem caps? Single or port heads? What case (it makes a difference)? Are you ‘used’ (streached) cylinder Are you using ‘case savers’? Are the flipped (bug pistons an arrow on top that is supposed to towards the flywheel — if turned over, they like crazy but make power — ask the Formula V Are you using an aftermarket oil pump a Melling)? How about an 8-dowel mounting? Check the fan shroud — make sure it or remove the fan ‘butterflys’ at the bottom the Did you know that you can install a clutch and pressure plate on any bug and substantially stronger than the setup? Do you have a 010 distributor did you know you

can set the timing on a bug with a simple 12V light and the engine not running just the ignition turned on?

If you’re going to race it sure you are), depending on the either get a ‘camber compensator’ or a swaybar (68/69 later if I remember my years — an IRS rear end) to help from rolling over. you can buy a full rollcage for a bug pretty — probably a couple of — it would be worth it. into an external oil cooler perhaps mounted on the colling below the rear window because is will remove the oil cooler from the airstream in the fan and make everything run cooler. A bug on oil!

Learn to live by the torque and locktite!

Sorry, I have experience with bugs I care to remember.

To be I’m not sure what of Weber carb that is. I not find any numbers on it. I’ve the barrels and they are close to (so I would guess it’s a If that’s the case, it should be an IDF

I’m running a stock dual port motor sure about the year or blue bosch ignition 009 distributor, no generator (gutted), and a Weber (duals are not recommended for At one point I might get the engine but that’s pretty far from

The Bug is a ’67, so it does have the old rear end, but I do have a 1970 to do the ‘new’ IRS conversion does anyone have the jig to allign and install the brackets?).

I I’ll just have to the carb appart, clean it, and out what is what. If anybody is and wants to help, let me know, a liquer store right to the shop, I’m buying 😉

Robert, thanks for the offer, but I I’ll go buy me a manual, as I will need it again, and again 😮
