thanks, I already have sourced a 34PICT-3 carb from nasir sheikh,.... but it doesn't look anything like this.
Are you sure this one is a VW item? as the carb for a beetle would need the fuel line to be facing left (towards the coil). this one seems to be facing the fan shroud.
any ideas which carb this is? i can't make out any of the markings on it.
