Re: Calling all Phaetons and Open Cars

Ron, that's the speeds I haul mine also. I was always told to transport 'no faster than the car will go' and even tho I might hold up traffic it's better than tearing up the top.

Re: Extended warrantee

I'll remember that on the next warranty call. Aaron I've had that call also about the extra material. I told them if that's the case, they need to eat the material & fire the guy who figured the job...

Re: How to clean our inside cast sediment bowl?

I take my carb off at least twice a year and spray it out along with the cast sediment bowl and screen using Valvoline Carb & Throttle Body Cleaner. Works great for me!

Re: Dirty Carburetors

I bet dirty carbs were commonplace back in the day. With no air filters or bad gas it probably took it's toll. I take mine apart about twice a year and spray carb cleaner thru it, then check all the...

Re: How Many 2020 Miles Did You Drive

I normally drive my A around my area 100-125 miles a year. That's pretty good seeing that it sat for 30 years after my Dad had put it away.

Re: are you guys putting the little screen inside the iron sediment bulb?

I clean that screen out about 3 times a season. You have to make it fit just right. Never saw a paper filter.
