aARE YOU MECHANICALLY LITERATE?? IF YOU WANT TO DO IT YOURSELF I SUGGEST THE "IDIOT" BOOK.. IT HAS LEAD ME THRU EVERYTHING...STEP BY STEP....STARTING WITH TELLING YOU WHICH END OF THE VW IS THE FRONT AND WHERE THE ENGINE IS... FIRST THING IS TO REBUILD THE CARB...CLEAN EVERYTHING...CHECK PLUGS AND TIMING...CHARGE UP THE BATTERY...SAY A FEW CHOICE WORDS...THEN CRANK.. GOOD LUCK
