Looks great Pete mine is working flawlessly. I have only adjusted it twice since I installed it.

The system is $300.00, plus shipping. The price includes the powdercoating in any color of your choice..as long as it's black :D If you want a custom color, it will be few dollars more.

thanks

Pete, anyone who has installed this.
How much clearance is needed between the carbs and the cooling shroud?
Both my Dells touch the shroud.
Bug
2056
Dell 40's DRLA
DTM-V2
Hex bar.
I'm thinking of a couple of those hard spacers between the cylinder heads and the base of the intake manifolds. (if I can find some)
Probably have to use longer studs on the heads
I'm kind of tired of adjusting the idle every time I drive the Bug.

Manny, give me a measurement from center of a manifold bolt to the shroud. I'll see what I have :)

I measure 15mm or 9/16"
That is the best I can see here, both sides are the same.
I took pictures but being a low tech old guy, don't know how to attach.

Manny, The best I could go is .625 in that measurement with the material I use. I would have to do a complete redesign of the bracket to fit your setup and that would take a bit of time.... which is in short supply right know. :(
