First off I have to say THANK YOU for all of the generous information shared here. I appreciate you all taking the time to help me out. There is so much knowledge on this site and this thread is filled with little tricks and tips. I followed the instructions to adjust the mixture and that helped a lot. It still feels like it's missing a few horses when I'm flooring it through 3-5k rpm. I don't have space in the garage to take apart the carbs myself as we just moved but will create a work bench for future needs.
I drove it about 50 miles today and when I went to start it again it takes a bit to start. When it's a cold start it whips right up... but I've noticed a few times after I park it for a moment and it's still hot the start feels I little scary. I don't have a lot of trust with it yet as I don't know her fully since I just got her in January.
Anyways, you guys have been awesome. I'll order those JC jet holders.. is there anything else you guys think I need that makes things easier?
Also, @Bob: IM S6 sent me the info for a shop in Calgary that specializes in air cooled VWs so I gave them a call and they have a cancellation for tomorrow AM! So off to Tony's Auto Service I go!
Happy Father's Day to all of you to whom it applies. Much appreciation over here!
