RE: [T3] Gas Tank Troubles - UPDATE

Yeah, the upside is the car is in 200% better condition than it was before.
It will be no big deal from here to go through the regular adjustments.

On the Bentley:  Who keeps this manual in stock?  I noticed that my local VW
shop did not have one...  figured I could get it easily on-line.

Sorry, this doesn't ring any bells here. It may be that things are
just carboned up from lack of spark previously, so it's possible that
this may clear up on its own. I wouldn't count on it, though. I'd
concentrate on the standard items: valve adjustment, timing, dwell,
advance mechanisms, fuel pressure, system regulation voltage....
