Talking saved anthor beetle

just bought a 71 super for 150 bucks that was on its way to the scrap yard in the morning. got it from a local guy that just sells scrap for a living. just happened to drive by and saw it loaded up and stopped to ask about it. it's rusty but complete and the engine turns over. i think it was smiling at me as i packed up my tools after tinkering with it for a few hours today. or it was just the mangled front apron and the moonlight? anyhow i'm just glad its in a vw nuts hands now where it will be safe.

well i had a chance to tinker with it a little more and discovered that the reason they may not have been able to get it running is cause theres no rotor button in the distruibuter and the fuel line bypasses the pump and hooks straights to the carb. i did see where someone at sometime had a electric pump mounted in the truck and have extended the lines to reach into the spare tire well. i'm gonna try running a fuel line from a gas can to the pump then to the carb and put in a rotor and see what happens.

well i finally had time to tinker with the car again and i guess the starter is locked up or the solenoid is just bad cause it wont crank at all, even with power jumped right to the solenoid. i'm going to try anthor starter and see if that fixes it. at least the starter is easy to get at cause the whole rear package tray is rusted out.....lol. on a positive note it does have a 009 distributer in it.
