Don't ask me what posessed me to drag my '82 Rabbit with a Carter/Weber carb. to CA with me, but I did. Didn't know what I was getting into with the smog laws. Went to a bunch of shops, including the nearest VW dealer. The dealer said I'd need a rebuilt carb, because it was running way rich, & they couldn't lean it out enough to help. I won't be TOO hard on 'em because that carb. was never sold in CA, but.... Bought a rebuilt carb., and even that didn't help. Anyway, none of the shops I went to knew what was wrong without doing diagnosis @ added cost. None, that is until I talked to Roger. He knew right away it was probably a vacuum leak--probably due to warpage of the base the carb. sits on. He was right. After replacing the base, O2 sensor, & cat., the car put out 0% CO! (So he enriched the mix just a touch.) A tip of the hat and more business to Roger. (Wanna buy a Rabbit?)
