  2. I'm assuming you took off the servo vacuum hose in the last pic ??

  3. Excuse my ignorance, but which pipe is this , I have ran this bus for 2.5 years and this is how I've gotten about

    If there's something missing then I've been none the wiser[​IMG]

  4. Look at the manifold beneath the carb , there's a large spur coming off behind the fuel pump . This is for the servo vacuum hose and should either have the hose connected for a servo or blanked off .....

  6. ALSO.....

    As you've been cleaning the fuel lines check the fuel pump pipes are on the correct way around - feed from tank and supply to the carb ...
    Buggered if I can remember which way around they go though , someone will be along soon

  7. Haha already done this, turned the engine over with the carb pipe off and it sprayed fuel about a metre out of the engine bay, fuel pressure works fabulous

  8. Just watched the vid and it does sound very `chuffy` , is it running on 3 ... ?

    Maybe a red herring .

  13. I wouldn't be so sure, have a good look around where it could have ended up.

  14. Glad you`ve sussed it :thumbsup:

    Just wondering where you`d get an idle jet from ....

    Where abouts in t`dales are you ??

    If you`re anywhere near Kettlewell there`s a proper old school garage run by Mick and Bill Wilkinson , if they don`t have one they`ll know if anyone in the area has boxes full of VW spares - good blokes !

    There`s also the owner of the Green Dragon pub (?) in Grassington - i remember he had a beetle for many years ...

    What about @paradox ??
    He`s up near Masham ..

    I`m on mi way out but have faith , ask questions and one WILL turn up :thumbsup:
