Re: Converting back to factory carb

Agree with David. Take heaps of photos of your stock parts car. When I went back to factory carb I put one car next to another and took one hose off at a time and replaced it in the same place on the swapped car.

Re: after many years, I'm finally back in the T4 game

G'day David, great to see that you are back in the game! I forgot to ask. do they salt the roads there? I still have my alltrac and its been used in a few TV ads of late which pays about $1,000 a day. So its' paying for itself! most of my time is taken with my Vanagon though these days. Matt
