No real problems really found, they had boiled them out in some hd carb cleaner. Professional stuff. They did did because the carbs were gummed up with old-bad gas. Carb kit was Borg warner from local flaps. No jets or such. We went to ASK (VW) auto parts in Houston. They been in business for years and Kermit seems to know his stuff. A lot of SE Texas folks think. Allen Presly( sp?) uses him, and he is a very big type 3 guy. houstonvw.com ( i think) and the type 3 convertible site.

Very good question. Lately it seems that the needle valve and seats are of varying quality (doesn't seem to make a difference on supplier), and that the old ones are usually still good. If he replaced the one for the carb on the 1-2 side, then that might be a good place to start. Other than the needle valves and seats, the kits are usually pretty good. The carbs themselves are usually pretty bullet proof, and fairly easy to work on. If he has access to the internet, he might want to look at this page, and maybe print it out. http://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/manuals/t3dualcarbtuning/
I hope this helps.
