Hey guys, I adjusted my valves on my 1970 Beetle 1600cc. Now, can someone walk me through step by step, timing this bad boy up?

We have an article on "Setting the Timing" on your Beetle at http://www.SuperBeetles.com in the Tech Talk with Rick section.

Here's a direct link to the page:

Hi Frodge,

check to see if you have a distributor with vacuum advance hose/s coming off it or if there are no vacuum advance hoses, then You have a Bosch 009 distributor, which has to be timed at 30-32 degrees total advance with the engine running.

 

You can static time it to get the engine running, but to get the best out of a 009, it has to be timed with a Strobe timing lamp, and revving the engine to see the Maximum advance....

this is because every 009 can be different...

If You have a 009 , and the Bosch part number on the Distributor will end in 009...

I won't go any further, until You see if You have a standard VW dizzy or a 009 which Volkswagen has never used.

 

cheers
