They are the same parts as used on beetles of the same years (68- the end of

Your US '68 originally came with FI. The webers are an aftermarket add-on and 
there's no telling whether they are jetted nicely. My first suggestion, 
however, would be to check the distributor advance mechanism. Is it working?

Their web site gives an international phone #: 310.325.0005. That might be a 
way to get an email address.
