Well. I dont know much about vw's or carb engines, but my guess is that your engine is suffocating from a lack of fuel, which leads me to believe the carb needs cleaning. Try changing a fuel filter too. Hope this helps

VW diesel engines have a spec of 360-450 psi with new engines. It is only considered a bad engine if the reading is below 276 or there is a difference of more than 73 psi between cylinders.

Looking wiring diagram 12/72 vw beetle dose that mean its a 73 wiring


Yes 12/72 is a 73 model wiring diagram.I dont think it maters because there were no changes in those cars from the late 50s till 78.They did not have a/c,cruise,power seats,power door locks,cd changers or gps.There was never much wiring to these cars and that was part of the concept, fewer parts means less chance of a break down.Air dont boil and air dont freeze.Have a great day!

How long did it sit? To long can cause rusting and corrosion on the Negetive and positive connections on your car also check your battery for a charge. Whats happened is one of two things, Not enough power to starter or bad ground in system. Clean all of the grounding points and put a good battery in it

Howto install weber carb


Remove the old carb.  Bolt the new carb and gasket onto the manifold.  Hook up the fuel line and clamp.  Thread the throttle cable through the linkage and tighten.  Have someone hold the gas pedal to the floor, look inside the carb and make sure the throttle plate inside the carb is full open.  Next, wire in the electric choke, this should just clip on.
Now after the engine is running and warmed up...adjust the mixture and idle speed adjustments on the side of the carb.  Is this a two barreled cab and does it have a manual choke?

Setting idle speed on a 2001 vw beetle 2.0-


The engine doesn't have a mechanical idle speed adjustment - VW/Audi have a software called VagCom (the diagnostic software they use) that is used to adjust the idle - it's completely computer-controlled. You have to change the idle speed using the software.
