This is a scan of the crappy original drawing I did for it.

I did make the gap 61-62mm as the hinges are but would recommend to rise the upper jaw some to make a 65mm gap. Easier to fit the different size pins into the lower jaw that way.

The jaws are drilled like this.

12mm all through the upper to allow the hingepin to go through. and 7mm just about 5-8mm down so you can drop in different length pusherpins into that hole.

Added a 20mm spacer under both carbs and now also welded the necks for the aircleaners so they clear from the fanshroud and still fit inside the enginebay.

Just have to make the linkage now and then testrun it.

Not sure what shop that is?
Hope it is'nt a bad place?

Here's the finished fuellines loosely fitted. Still need to tighten the joints and make a few supports to avoid the worst vibations.

I didn't end up using the Bus carbs but bought a set of type-4 carbs from a 411 instead...

The problems the busguys are having is that the bus type-4 carbs have a lot of vacuum shutoff valves and hose etc. that are difficult to get to work properly without the knowledge where as the 411 carbs dont. They are more like pre-Kadron carbs. Basically the same carbs as the ones used on Type-3's with dualcarbs just 34mm instead of 32mm for type-3's.

Removed the frontseats and started dismantling the small parts in the dash etc. prior to repaint. Had to peak under the floormats to check the floorpans too..

Looks pretty rotten to me... ;)




I have never seen a beetle door that have had a plastic foil behind the doorpanels before either...



To top it all the PO had appearantly "sealed" the fenderbeading with vaseline!!!



Getting ready for repaint.
