View Full Version : Vw Camper Hot Start Trouble

05-04-2007, 07:19 AM
A mate of mine has a VW Camper 2 litre twin carbs solex, the engine was rebuilt last year, the carbs are new as are the electrics, the engine will start readily from cold and the auto choke switches off normally as the engine warms up, however once hot, the revs tend to drop down when ticking over, as this is an Auto gearbox, it is difficult because you can't blip the throttle to rescue the revs without shooting forward.
The revs slowly reduce down lower and lower until the engine finally dies.
The car then is difficult to start and generally ends up flooded.
Any of you carb boys out there shed any light on this?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

I dont really know much, but a while back looked into getting a beetle, i think with some carbs you can set the fuel flow with the turning of a screw. It could be something as simple as this.

let us know how it goes
