Took a picture of Speedy to determine what needs to be done as a 73 rebuilt trans is going in hopefully next week. Notice the left carb being higher that the right--dual 40 dells. When the car came into my possession there were filter canisters but they were never mounted--just open trumpets. Maybe now I know why--the hood will not go on with the what I believe is bent horns. The sheets metal over the heads with plug markings shows the left side about 1/2 inch higher than the 2x2 framing--left to right. PO passed a few years before I found my garage find so no info passed forward.
What would you do--in 500 words or less--PLEASE. I am online teaching Science to 127 8th graders due to C19 so I am so eye/brain dead with reading online.
My guess is to find an alignment shop with a guy that has been around long enough to have vintage VW experience. I do know of a British restore shop near me. Yes--I have wrenched all my life but getting this square again and not having a life is outside my reach. I am in Akron, Ohio
Ok--reach my 125 words--talk to me wise men.
