    Had a super beetle come in for a tune-up. It looked like it had a stock engine, stock carb + stock exhaust. I couldn’t get it to run right. It didn’t want to pull any vacuum on the low end…like it has a big/long duration cam. Called the owner, an they said “yeah the guy we bought it from said something like that”. Choked out on the higher RPMs with the stock carb/exhaust, and not moving enough air at low RPM. My only advise was to install 36 dells(Empi) and better flowing exhaust.

    Yeah runs good. I installed the engine and drove around today. Issue with a brand new fuel sender not working…and super beetle requires tank removal to get at it. Messed around all afternoon and decided to put the 1/2 working original back in.

    Why you always bring me junk?!

    Brandon’s car got a 1 3/8 Empi/bugpack 5/1600 style exhaust. It’s loud without the baffle. I tuned it with the o2 sensor and ended with 115 main/62 idle jets.

    My friend Scott Hodges has a 63 Volvo. I think he wants to sell it for $2500. It ran a few years ago, but has sat since then. I was tasked with making it run again…I took the whole fuel system apart as it had some terrible smelling fuel in it. Planning on a fuel tank clean-out, fuel pump, and carburetor rebuilds. My first time messing with SU carburetors. The floats stopped floating…So I’m on hold until we order parts in.

    I had a 58 PV a few years ago, really cool cars and actually pretty peppy and handle well. If I were closer I’d gladly pay the $2500!

    I had a good couple of days wrenching on the red 66 I got from Jesse/Zoey. Serviced and installed the engine. Driving again.

    Hey Franz, I have a friend that’s interested in the Volvo.

    Cool! I can show it to him anytime (except this afternoon). We are going to order parts to rebuild the fuel system and get the gas tank cleaned, unless he wants to buy it before then…cheaper.
