Good Afternoon, tsents:

I've got the manuals for about 14 versions of the VeeDub engines but my manuals don't go back that far.

I suggest you stop by the local parts house and pick up a Haynes Automotive Manual #96008. It gives you the specs, the wiring diagrams, and overhaul data on that engine. If they don't have it, they can order it in for you. (I am not an employee of Haynes so I receive no commission on the sale). If that doesn't work, you can get it off the web at http://www.haynes.com.

Valve adjust specs

VW aircooled engines should be adjusted cold to .006 in, on both intake and exhaust.

Although VW first recommended .004, it was found they were too tight and often resulted in burned valves.

Valves should be adjusted on these things frequently, say every oil change (2-3,000 miles)
