A customer with a late 1970s VW Golf asked me to replace all four strut springs to lower his car a few inches.

While there, he asked about having a Weber fitted to replace the stock Solex carb.

With the adapter plate and some additional hosing, plus routing through a manual choke cable, all was fitted and the car ran like a champ. Customer was happy his poorly cold starting Golf fired up better and idled better.

He also likes his lowered ride. Pity about the potholes in the area!
