Re: [T3] Dual actuated vacuum advance vacuum line routing.


All seems to be working OK - pulls well and returns 34mpg Imp (27 US) on a trip,
so I'm sure it's OK, but I've not bothered to pull hoses off to check it loses
the retard.
Factory timing is TDC with hoses on for engines T069001 - T1009829,  see factory
service data at  http://www.hallvw.clara.net/type3ign.htm
Yes, it makes it much easier to adjust.
I wonder why they do it hoses off for the FI version, which appeared the next
model year.

Luckily I picked up a new 205T years ago, so I've got what I need if there's a
problem.
