    Sounds like vapor lock.

    Let me guess, you drove your aircooled car 15 minutes across town during the hottest time of day on the hottest day of the summer, went inside for about 5 -10 minutes, and then it wouldn’t start.

    The heat in the engine bay spikes when you get it to operating temp, then park it. Causing the fuel in the hoses to boil and flood the carbs.

    Try opening the deck lid to let the heat out if you’re only going to park it for 5 minutes.

    Congrats on Petes Bug!  He loved that car, that was his keeper.  I saw it a few weeks ago and wondered what would become of it.  It will be perfect match as well.

     

    Let me know if you want to sell that wheel. sure would like to have the  complete set 😛
