Restore vw fastback 19
This is a video of me and my auto mechanics students restoring a 72 vw fastback. My middle son got a new camera for Christmas and wanted to try out the video part of it so I thought we would give it a go. I found out most of the idle problem. Jim suggested to spray some WD40 in the idle circuit and see if it comes out both sides. Well I didn't have WD40 but I had PB blaster so I used that. Sure enough it was stopped up with some kind of trash. Unplugged that but it is still idling a little low so I checked the timing since we swapped out the points. The timing is a tad low. The Bentley says to line the third line from the left on the timing marks with the center of the peep hole on the Gen belt cover. l l ll But the highest I can get it is the second mark from the left. I can't go any higher because the fitting on the advance for the vacuum hose hits the generator. I guess I didn't get the distributor in there quite right during engine assembly. Any suggestions on pulling that shaft out so I can turn it a notch? The car runs good but not quite right as like I said the idle seems low, the plugs still try to foul a little when the engine is cold and it still has a random slight skip every once and a while as you may hear in the video. Anyway had fun just putting 6 miles on it today just circling the campus today.
