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.
