    Default Volkswagen Club of Pakistan (VWCOP)

    Lets all contribute pics and memories to this timeless classic that has faithfully served generations. It is my 1st car memory and my dad who is a Beetle enthusiast at one time had a total of 4 beetles in our garage Here's a little history of this miraculous German wonder: 'The history of the Beetle really goes back to pre 2nd world war Germany when Ferdinand Porsche had a vision of a mass produced vehicle that was affordable to the average German, an idea that was shared with the young Adolf Hitler who himself could not drive, but was a car fanatic. Hitler was apparently influenced by the achievements of Henry Ford and his production lines - reading Ford's biography while in prison during 1923. Porsche had previously worked on some other small cars that used many elements later to be included in the Beetle. The Type 32 prototype NSU of 1934 was an air-cooled rear engined four cylinder horizontally opposed powered car that used torsion bar suspension and featured beetle-like styling.' --- source - Google.co.uk lets keep the posts rolling - add pics of bugs you've owned or own! I'll add my dad's bug family pics as well ... I guess he fell in love with this oddly shaped car after he drove it down to Pakistan from Germany!!!! .. stories of that wonderous journey keep us entertained whenever our family gets together


    Mod edit: thread title changed in May 2008
    Never give up .. cuz that is when the tide will change!...

    @asad
    the new owner is someone else (for now), it's the ex-punjab policer car.

    the roads of ISB are pretty clean.

    i heard once that best place for a fuel filter is to have it in the inside of the car, i'm guessing somewhere like inder hte rear seat,... sounds odd though. i just used jubilee clips in my car. that coil is pretty good, but i'd prefer everyone uses an original unit. i had no choice as mine died and i couldn't find a good replacement (now i have).

    as for the 200 pages,.. it's people like you who brought this thread so far (Y)

    @romano
    i have an audio clip you MUST hear, it's about decreasing height.

    Well, Variant or Fastback, it is positively criminal in my books to do that kind of thing to a type 3, especially in Pakistan. What a waste!

    By the way, where is this workshop? Is this the one off Peshawar Road in Pindi?

    Also Is that a split bus I see in the background (last picture)?

    Hello all,
    sorry for the %^$ delay but that contact of the French doctor is such a late lateef when it comes to SMS replies. Sent him 3 reminders but so far total radio silence. I have today sent the French doctor an email, lets see what transpires. However keep the 31st in mind, as that is the original departure date :-)

    @ haywirehiatus







    That’s a neat tachometer! Where did you get your hands on this??? Its by Smiths, so Brit most prolly.







    When you have the wiring diagram with you (a real blessing) why do you need directions??? How does it not list where to connect the remaining two wires?? Please scan the diagram and post a high resolution copy here, it would be easy to follow for sure. I cant make much out in the photograph.







    I don’t know how Storm has deciphered the color codes for the wires but I must warn you that you have to be *very* sure before you wire up this instrument (or any electric device in an auto for that matter) and energize it. You might end up doing permanent damage to the tacho.







    The problem is color codes are not standard, the Brits may consider a particular color to designate live for example while maybe the Japs consider it something else. So tread carefully!







    I have a tacho myself which also has four wires but they are black, green, red and white. I won’t tell you how the recommended wiring diagram is for my meter because I don’t want you to blindly follow it. I would however say that Storm’s key *may* be correct.







    Would wait till you post a good copy of the instruction sheet.

    @ AsadIshaque


    I looked back at your post. I suppose the location of the fuel filter is incorrect?


    I got this tachometer from my uncle. he used it in an old Nissan. i checked the wiring diagram, what Storm said is correct.
