Recommended Reading – Volkswagen Bentley Manual

I get about 10 emails a week from people asking what literature might be good for them to purchase for their new project. I recommend the Volkswagen Beetle and Karmann Ghia Official Service Manual Type 1: 1966-1969. You can purchase it here (affiliate link).

More info from Bentley Publishers:

This book features full wiring diagrams (including 6-volt systems), convertible top repair, carburetor rebuilding (30 PICT-1 and 30 PICT-2) and comprehensive year and model specifications and troubleshooting tables. Like the later-model Type 1 manual, this is a comprehensive source for service and repair information.

New Color Wiring Diagrams! The hardcover edition of this book now features an eight page color supplement with reproductions of original full-color Type 1 technical schematics.

Technical features:

  • Full data and instructions for all major repairs on engines, clutches, and transmissions.
  • Rebuilding and adjusting the carburetor for maximum economy and reduced exhaust emissions.
  • How to rebuild disc and drum brakes for safer stops with older cars.
  • Taking the play out of worn front ends and steering gears.
  • How to align front and rear wheels for reduced tire wear and lower rolling resistance.
  • Troubleshooting, replacing, or repairing every component of the electrical. system-with full wiring diagrams for every model.
  • Complete specifications and instructions for money-saving tune-ups.
  • Spark advance curves that will help you spot fuelwasting, worn-out distributors.
  • Do-it-yourself body repairs that help keep older bugs looking new.
  • Plus the comprehensive Volkswagen factory tolerances, wear limits, adjustments and tightening torque specifications that you’ve come to expect from Bentley manuals.

A must-have resource for anyone who owns a ’67 Beetle.

Advanced VW – Decatur, GA

Atlanta to Decatur on my Bike

I’d like to take this moment to thank Bobby at Advanced VW in Decatur, GA for rebuilding my engine back in 2006. I was in the infant stages of my restoration, and Bobby took the time to educate me about keeping the original engine in the car. Now if only I would not have tossed that German tire jack when I was cleaning out the trunk area! Thanks again Bobby for all your help. Advanced VW can be reached at: 404-373-7963

A big thanks to Chris Vallone for his recent mention of my ’67 oil bath air cleaners that I restore. I take a lot of pride in this work.
