i've been thinking about getting a different carb.

the Weber i have now is almost impossible to adjust. the air/fuel mixture is between the back of the carb and almost up against the doghouse. vacumm ports on both sides (i don't need either of them,) and the top plate to hold the air filter covers any access to the mixture screw. it's hard enough to see it clearly, let alone to get maybe a bent needle nose on it and impossible to get a screw-driver on it.

so what i'm looking for is a single or dual barrel carb, i don't care who makes it, just be easy to tune.
the intake i think is by SCAT w/ the plenum.
i have a 1641 with d/p heads, low end power would be nice, but reliablity and power all through the range would be nice.

anybody have one laying around or suggestions?

good times,
jeff

What you have is a Webber progressive carb. They are petty good for street but not so hot for off road. Ebay or Craig's list it and get what you want. There are a lot of opinions on what the best carb is and it can get really confusiong when you're starting off.

My opinion- If you don't know much or don't have a bunch of money to spend, get a stock carb and get the engine tuned up right before you throw a bunch of money at it. Hage out with VW people and ask a lot of questions. When you feel like you know what you want and have the money, upgrade.
