PostSubject: broken down in Cardiff   Sun Aug 23, 2009 11:34 am

Hi guys. My 72 early bay 1600 has broken down in Cardiff. We are touring the UK for 4 months and have a recurring problem. It starts backfiring and running rough then eventually wont start. In past two months 5 garages have reset the timing and all seems good for a few hundred miles then it stops again. Kingfisher Kustoms gave it an overhaul including new points, fuel filter etc, but it seems to be back to its old ticks. Any ideas? Carb has been suggested. Also can anyone recommend a Cardiff based VW specialist who could have a look and get the bus going again. We are back in Cardiff on Tuesday and really need her to be working by Thursday as we are making a tv show. Cheers Paul 07867517345.
