VW Sand Rail 1600 Dual Port With Holley Bugspray and Megaphone Exhaust
just idleing, revving up and walking around
I think the carb could use some tuning. I think it is running rich. It seems like it runs a lot smoother once I rev it up a bit...like the plugs are loading up and I clean them out...that could be what all that smoke is too. Any thoughts?

Old School 2176cc vw sand rail lives again
The moment of truth for my vintage rail job buggy. It's was purchased on a whim from a local import shop that specializes in VWs. Said they couldn't get it to run correctly. I think it just needed a little TLC and someone familiar with timing "hot" aircooled vw. Still leaning toward getting rid of the .010 distributer. Definitelyswapping over to dual weber 48 IDFs too
