G'day Chris.

Would these two improvements work a 1192cc Australian built 1965 standard model Beetle?

I have just taken ownership of a complete stock/original 6volt beetle, built and manufactured in Australia and I am going to keep it stock, but I like the idea of a little more HP without compromising the originality.

Cheers

Clem

Great tips, Chris. Question: any recommendations for 40hp engines?

@Aussie65vw Depends which motor you have, 36hp or 40hp?  Is the genny stand fused to the block?  If you have the later 40hp, go with a 019 Distributor, and you will have to hunt down an abarth for the 40hp.  I think they do sell it though through karmann konnection
