Just some fun and a carburetor

Well, apparently the stock carb had a cover on a hole, and after some time the plug will just blow, so it did. I towed the car up to Pompano where I could get some information on the issue. This is where Bruce from McNab Foreign Auto came into play, he’s been working on air-cooled VW’s for 35-40 years, much longer then I. I eventually replaced the stock carb with a Weber Progressive a friend had lying around.

While I was up there I also got some fun things to play with:

Laser Engraved Aluminium Crank Pulley: $27

Oil Filler Neck: $5

Oil Filler Breather: $11

“T” Bars: $10

Fuel Filter: $2

Exhaust

Today was a fun day playing with Yellow, I changed the stock heat-exchanger setup to a higher performance header with a quiet pack exhaust. Sounds MUCH better and definitely has more power in the butt dyno.
