Are you running a single carb? If so, for one of my Corvair powered VWs I'd built a manifold to run a single Holly 350 2 barrel. When the manifold iced and I ran a copper tube from the left exhaust manifold, up against the underside and down to the right. I wrapped it with something...don't recall what. On one side I used a 1/4" fitting and the other basically a pin hole. The theory was that the size differential would draw the heated gasses from one side to the other. It worked really well, including a run across the Mojave Desert.

I believe the "homebrew webber progressive" would indicate a single carb, but I'm not certain.
V8's heat suggestion might be the ticket.

If ya really want duals, early type 3s came with dual carbs stock, after that there are numerous aftermarket kits.

Stock


Aftermarket


Loose the engine cover and lots of stuff will fit.

Glad to see you're still kickin' around rostigbug!!

Just a squareback (AKA T-III) motor in Lumpy.
Thankis V8 for the ideer.
I suppose homebrew heat for my homebrew intake is reasonable

This is an old thread but, back in 1986 I had a progressive setup on my Bug, the manifold didn't come with the tubes that run from the bottom of the manifold to the exhaust, it iced up real bad too, I took a bunch of 12 ga copper wire & wrapped it around the bottom of the manifold on both sides, then ran it to the exhaust tubes & wrapped it around them a bunch of times on both sides
I bet I used 10 to 15 feet of wire, it helped that my dad had a few rolls of 12 /3 wire in the shed & the ground wire just had paper around it, I pulled all the paper off it & wrapped the hell out of it, it was ugly but it never iced up again
In 1991 when I built my rail buggy I seen a set of those tubes that went from the manifold to the exhaust pipes & so I bought them

I also have a set of dual carbs off a type 3, they are on SP manifolds, but I'm sure they could be fit to DP manifolds, I'll get a picture of them if you want
