Hi lads,

Is there anyone free during the festive period to try and help me get the beetle running right. It starts and idles well, but as soon as you drive it the engine tries to run away with itself and revs higher and higher..

I can drive anywhere to meet you as its all road legal, just want to make it more driveable..

I also can't get the bonnet open, so if anyone can help me there, it would be awesome. I have played with the glovebox lever but its not going anywhere.. From reading online, people say to cut the handle off, but I don't have a replacement, so if anyone has a replacement I will happily give money for or knows how to sort this problem.

I can pay in beer

Cheers

Dicky

What carb / carbs go you have ?
Have they got an air leak ?
Sticky float ?
Linkage between the carbs to tight ?

These are my personal issues other than that I don't have a clue !!!

I'm not a carb man, so don't know too much, I know that when I went to see her the carb bowl was empty. We opened up the carb and filled it and it seemed to work ok. Not sure if it is sticking though.

Its a single carb so not a linkage issue as far as I can see..

I don't think theres an air leak.. I will try spraying some WD around the carb tomorrow and see what happens.

Been out this evening to have another crack.. Takes minutes to get the springplate off.. Trying to take it up a spline is a fucking nightmare. At 3 splines theres no tension on the spring. So I moved it up a spline, knock the springplate on until it meets the back plate. Use the jack to get it up onto the backing plate.. then try to knock it on the rest of the way but the springplate doesn't seem to sit square and the cover that goes over the rubber for the splines doesn't line up well either..

Any suggestions?

You wont of dropped it 4 splines,its not really possible,theres not enough movement in the axle..

Are you sure its a 3 spline drop?..there are only a handful of cars that run a 3 spline drop and yours isn't  as low..
These are 3 splines..yours maybe a mix of 2 inner mixed with the outer splines..

use longer bolts for the spring plate covers to wind them on.  smile
bring it up to two splines and it should be lovely. Cool

It must be a mix of inner and outer then..

The difference was 53cm to 50.5 cm Arch to floor so about an inch.

This is 2 outer



This is 3 outer.



This is the beetle..



I don't think its far off.. I think I'll have another play with it after xmas..
