Spend a little time! Save a lot of money!
Make sure to troubleshoot your Carburetor before purchasing a new one.
Our Carburetors are factory bench tested, adjusted, and ready to install. They are guaranteed to work properly right out of the box, free of all manufacturing defects. If your engine is currently not running well and continues to run poorly after a new carburetor has been installed, the problem is either not the carb, or there may be additional problems hindering performance. We highly recommend you check, diagnose and exhaust every other possibility before purchasing a new carburetor, because they will not be refunded once installed. Addressing the problems below is far less expensive than the cost of a new carburetor!
Check for intake leaks at the carburetor base gasket, at the intake manifold boots and end castings (for dual port manifolds), at the
cylinder head, and that the manifold itself is not cracked or pin-holed.
Make sure that the ignition timing is correct and your spark plugs, plugs wires, points, condenser, cap and rotor are in good condition.Make sure that the valves are adjusted properly.
Check that your fuel pressure is proper. Often times new fuel pumps put out more pressure than carburetors can use.
MOST IMPORTANTLY make sure your current carburetor is adjusted properly. If you are not familiar with setting a carburetor take the car to a certified mechanic that is familiar with VWs.
