Excellent. People will put down John Muir and sometimes for good reason. But, Muir is the easiest immersion into mechanicking on your VW that I can think of. Any time he comments on anything other than an immediate procedure, put up a flag and go research other opinions. He was very resistant to vacuum hoses, chokes, and combination distributors. Like so many human beings since the dawn of time, he poo-poo'd things he did not understand,

hey, at least Muir put his book out there in the world, (despite imperfections)...got it published..and it lives on 40+ years later.

...speaking of underbrush of procrastination...when is YOUR book coming out ?

Unlike some of US . . . .
You keep emailing me with feedback, I am lost as to the purpose.
