Hi, my name is John and I just bought my first VW. I will start by saying I really have no idea what I am doing but this thing is fun to drive lol If you guys can guide me in the right direction as far as maintenance goes and placed to go ride that would be awesome. I live in Surprise so I am thinking of hitting the river bottom out here this week end. Well here's some pics of my ride. Is this a Chenowth or something? What is it?

From what I've been hearing lately, there's not much left on the north and west ends of town that hasn't been shut down. They're using the dust control laws in Maricopa county as the excuse to close them down. The non-stop encroachment of homes over the last ten years hasn't helped, either. Fortunately for us out east here, we're close enough to the Pinal County line AND some other places that we should be ok for awhile.

Someone from over yonder where you're at will pipe up shortly I'd imagine. Welcome! Looks like a fun buggy you've got there!

Welcome aboard! I am out in Surprise as well. About Bell and Reems. Just got my baja and am still working on getting it running smooth enough to take out so I don't know the spots yet either. When i had my rail a few years back though, I just took Bell west to the White Tanks and would run out in that area. But, I think my Father-in-law said they shut down or are trying to shut down our old spot. Let me know what you find! Maybe we can go out and hit a trail nearby together sometime. This weekend is my wife's birthday or else I would get my carb dipped and running by this weekend and head out with ya!

Yeah we should definately go out riding sometime soon! I workfor Surprise PD and know the guy that leases the land out off of Sun Valley Parkway and Crozier. He is tired of people dumping trash out there and told me if I ever wanna go out and ride out there I can so that is an option. Also I saw some roads leading off of Sun Valley out pastthe Shell station that I was told leads to a river. The thing that sucks is that my days off are tues, wed, thurs right now Sad

I am having a problem with this rail. It starts right up and drives straight etc, but it has a hesitation in it when I take off or shift. I have to kinda "flutter" the pedal to get it to accelerate but once it smooths out it goes fine. I just changed out all the plugs, wires, coil wire, manually turned the distributor to see if it would even out. None of this helped. Anyone have any ideas?

Carb issue like jetting maybe? Maybe carb is dirty. What are you running for a carb and distributor?

hmmm guess i cant post the pic in this forum it says. I am not really familiar with the carbs on vw's but I am pretty handy and can work on most stuff so is it difficult to adjust these carbs? I had planned on taking a friend out in the rail tomorrow and dont wanna cancel that lol

Ok so did you get a chance to take your friend out. Just curious, I'm new to the site and out on the West side as well near Rheems and Olive. Let me know when you guys are going out I have to do a couple more things to this old girl and it'll be time to beat on her a little to make sure she is going to hold up.
