I'd love to have a copy of that, as the Haynes don't have anything on those

Yep, I have discs on my '68 Bug.

The same pads as the bug on the 4-pots? I just cant agree on that! The bug pads
are 53 mm wide, while the 4-pot pads are 75 mm wide. I digged the new pads out
of a corner of the basement. The p/n for the big pads are 361 698 151 A (note
the p/n starts with 36 - variant only) The regular 72-73 pads for the type 3 is
a size in between the bug and 4-pot pads.
