How long should your 30 PLUS year old carburetor last? Your old original carb. has simply worn out. Every time you push the throttle, the throttle shaft wears against the carburetor body creating wear. After years of this, the wear between the shaft and body allows air to slip through the gap entering the engine. Your old carburetor has no way to adjust for this un-metered air, throwing the idle fuel mixture so far out of adjustment that you will never be able to get the car to idle properly once it has warmed up. The only answer? You need to buy a 100% new carburetor. Even so called rebuilt carbs do not address this problem. We stock a complete selection of Brand new Carburetors.
This is not the Mexican Brosal carburetor produced with 20 year old tooling. This a ALL NEW carburetor with ALL NEW tooling. If you hold a new Mexican Brosal carb. next to this carburetor, you will instantly see the different in quality and finish. We have tested these carburetors and they performance perfectly in all stock engine applications. This carb. will give you years of trouble free service and reliability.
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 carb. Click here to see part number VWC-043-905-205.
SPECIAL NOTE: Accelerator pump linkage to Alternator body clearance.
This new OE quality carburetor has the later style accelerator pump linkage already installed, and will work perfectly with generator or alternator without any modifications.
The Brosal 34 PICT-3 carburetor was built for use with a standard generator, and when used with an alternator (fatter diameter), the accelerator pump linkage will hit the body of the alternator. We now offer a specially made spacer that fits between the manifold and carburetor to lift the carb. up enough to allow the linkage to clear the alternator . If you would like this carburetor, see part number VWC-113-129-031-K . And for the spacer, see part number C26-127-021
