Re: [T3] T3 - More questions

<x-flowed>GaryG=> Where can I get back up lights?

Reverse lights are relatively easy to find and simple to wire up. They may not have come on your car originally. The tricky bit is the reverse-light switch. If you don't have one (look for an unused spade contact or wire on the nose of the transaxle), you can get the early-option switch, which bridges between the speedometer and the cable to sense when you're moving backward.

=> it doesn't have enough power to get up some of these hills.

From that you can confidently conclude that it's far out of tune. When it's dialed in, you'll be surprised at how peppy it is.

=> I've got two single-barrel Webers

Not stock.

=> Any ideas as to adjustments, or could it be something else?

The best procedure is always basic tuneup first -- valves, dwell, spark timing -- before looking at carb adjustments. That said, if you have stock heads it's not unlikely that the carbs are overfueling, and there is very little info available on how to go about tuning them to the Type 3. Post the specific model of the carbs here and any details you can find on them. It may be that someone else here has specific knowledge of your carbs.
