I used to be a vee-dub mechanic. I know what makes the old bosch f.i. work. it was ahead of its time. The trick with air cooled vw's is to find one that doesn't feel like it has 400k miles on it. had a bug for a little while too. we used to drive it on trails and cinders when I used to live in Flagstaff AZ. don't want a type one, but if the right bus came along...maybe.
