So I fiddled with all the screws I could find to adjust it and somehow (lots of reading and watching videos of well running bugs) she seems to be running much better. Just a few more twists here and there and I'll bet she'll be in pretty decent running condition (I might need some help from someone that actually knows what they're doing...)

Well the label says 30/31 PICT that's all I know at this exact moment. She's doing a fair sight better than she was last Sunday when I missed tech day. I would have tried to make it but it seems my new starter died on me and I don't live anywhere near a hill, at least one that would get her started before I hit the bottom.

Hey monkey, I live less than 10 minutes from Denios, so if you need some assistance. let me know brotha! since I learned how to dial my 30/31 I've been itching to get to another one with issues! It's freaking sucks to fight with the damn thing, but once you conquer the battle and you feel your V-dub run TITTS for the first time, it's down right EPIC! cheers
let me know if I can help!

It's been a long time of life getting in the way of working on my baby. It seems right now the last thing I have to dial in is a misfire/backfire (varies based on RPM mostly) on cylinder #4.

Next time I'll be a little bit more careful when I replace the spark plugs it seem #4 got knocked around on it's way in closing the gap completely. And here I was thinking "everything should be sparking I just replaced the plugs and wires and the distributor is fine."
