<font FACE="arial,helvetica"><font SIZE="2" PTSIZE="10" FAMILY="SANSSERIF" FACE="Arial" LANG="0"> Don't know about the clutch but VW carb will not fit on Amphi without an adapter, studs are farther apart, at least on the one I put on, plus linkage is different but will swap--all in all not worth doing. I tried it in an attempt to solve vapor lock problem, it didn't do any good.

On the club making a donation to us Looseiana members, speaking only for myself, I will take a few margaritas whenever any of you me.

There is a huge need for monetary donation for relief use, but not only New Orleans, Alabama and Mississippi and the area south of New Orleans were hit much harder, they just didn't make the headlines, if you feel the need to give, make it to agency that is helping and specify where you want it used.

Hi

I am getting close to getting my 67 Amphi ready to float. I have two
questions:

1. I need to do a clutch job. I have read the posts. How are the high
performnance clutchs as opposed to the regular ones? Are they quieter?
less shaking? smoother shifting, etc?

2. I have heard that VW down draft carbs would fit an Amphi. Anyone try
one.

Hi Michael,

I'm the designer and builder of the high performance clutch system.
Since you live in my state, feel free to come on down and try it. You
can drive either of my Amphicars. Both have my clutch system in it and
one of them has about 4000 miles on it, with a lot of those miles being
city miles.
