In fact they probably sold it because they could never get it to workZ When these cars were pretty common I used to be able to buy 
them easily and cheaply if they were poorly working. Usually the 
total repairs were less than $100 to get it back into perfect working 
condition. Eventually it got harder and harder as the cars became 
more and more cobbled with time. It's amazing what people will do and 
still claim that their "solution" was fine.

This list is your best resource. Depending on the year, I could 
probably put together a complete kit of FI parts for a type 3. Most 
cars won't even need ALL the parts.

I'm not sure, but I'd be willing to bet that there were never FI type 
3s in Mexico. There are plenty of parts here, though. Just ask.
