valves had always been the biggest reliability problems in early
volkswagens. In the 60's VW decided to try and resolve these problems. The
first solution was .006" valve clearance spec for all engines.(previosly
004" in many models)
The .004 valve adjustment ended with the 36hp and started again in '65 on the 40hp. They didn't change the adjustment to .006 until I think it was '68.
That change of valve adjustment had a slightly different reason.
