    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

    Salams All!

    Anyone have an experience about water-cooled engine swapped in a beetle? I have just bought one and cant understand its cooling system because its radiator is mounted on front and it makes pressure of water. Suggest me any other good place to mount radiator near engine.

    Regards,

    Please educate me regarding the importance of heat-risers (attached under manifold) for beetle engines as my mechanic says its not an important component for usage in warm climate areas.

    ...another ex-ambulance late bay working like a horse. The good thing is that it has not been cut up to fit a diesel engine.

    Heat risers are there to stop air-fuel mixture condensing inside the manifold. It travels along the manifold and heats it up.

    Its true that in our climate the car will show no ill signs (breathing troubles) when having the heat risers blocked, but the car will run better and give better mileage when leaving it open.
    But the question is, will it do a burnout?

    It should not be if you were in Europe or North America. However Pakistani summers are a different story altogether so we do not need the engine to run rich for the duration that we adjusted for in the winter. The answer to your question would then be."Yes"

    Not necessarily. Depends on the condition of the carb. If its performing as it should, no need to rebuild it.
    But the question is, will it do a burnout?

    This mirror goes on the right side of your car. In a LHD car that would be the passenger side. This mirror is correct for a LHD car as the passenger side mirror has to have a longer arm for the driver to be able to see properly on the off side.

    However there is no disadvantage (or advantage) if you put this on the drivers side of a RHD car.

    throwback to 2009..
    my neighbor was getting his house painted from outside, the painter lost his balance and fell off his support. luckily my beetle and charade were parked down there, he hit his head on beetle's fender and his legs on charade's bonnet..thank GOD he survived without any major injury..
    BEETLES HAVE ALWAYS BEEN TAKING CARE OF US!! (no doubt we have been reciprocating that care too)

    I believe this is an alteration.. not a factory fitted setup.

    Please share the part number off the relay (if visible as you say it was burnt)

    Couple of pics would help too. If one of the points broke off, the designated terminal number would still be visible at that point. Am not too sure what you mean by saying in doubt if one connector is missing.

    good luck.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!
