Thats c-box.  I would stack gaskets...but I'm running an electric pump.  I will have to check into the holley regulator.

Is this the one your talking about.....

Yes the Holley looks correct.

You just want to make sure it is the low pressure version, as the regular version is for the larger V-8's and such.
The worst performance mod is whatever you're limited to because you convinced yourself (or others) that anything bigger or faster was too extreme for a street car.

AJ Simms is sadly a major failure in the customer service area. Just read the reviews on the Samba about him.

Well,

I was inspired after donuts to work on the super....got er running....I think I have a fan shroud knock, either that or exhaust against the fender.....as long as its not internal Im inclined to to care too much.  Onward on more toward a drivable vw!

Here is the verdict on my motor....The gland nut came loose so the flywheel was flopping around in the bell housing...It wobbled out the pin holes in both the crank and the flywheel.  Thankfully, all I have to replace is the flywheel, the crank, and the mains....should be ok I think after that....Oddly enough I found that I have an 8 doweled lightened flywheel in my stash as I was looking for spare parts...fun day!
