For best results, we recommend that you DO NOT use a "009" mechanical advance distributor with the 34-PICT carburetor. The "009" Bosch mechanical advance distributor does not advance until the engine RPM's have increased, but the Stock (or near stock) Beetle/Ghia 1600cc engine with stock carburetor requires advance the instant the throttle peddle is pressed. With a "009", this results in a large flat spot (or hesitation) when you leave a stop sign. This is not a problem with the carburetor and CAN NOT fixed by adjusting the carburetor.
For the very best results we recommend that you purchase a new Vacuum advance distributor at the same time you order you new carburetor.

Important Information
About the Carburetor on your VW Beetle
Back in the 70s, before fancy computer-generated systems, fuel and air were delivered into the engine by carburetors. Your VW Beetle carburetor blends the right amounts of fuel and air and delivers it to the engine. So if you want to see your Beetle in motion, the carburetor is an important piece of equipment. If you notice black smoke coming from the exhaust, it could be a sign that your carburetor needs replacing. Since the carburetor directly affects the engine on your VW Beetle, if you notice sluggish acceleration or a reduction in power, it’s time to check on your carburetor. Also, if your Bug is hard to start, it could mean your carburetor needs a tune-up or replacing. Make certain that the carburetor choke is working properly. Most carburetors use an original type manual choke but you can opt for an electronic choke for most carburetors in 12v systems.

On this page, you’ll find replacement carburetors for your VW Bug as well as tubes and hardware. If you’d like to keep your carburetor and rebuild, consider our universal carburetor rebuild kit.
