The manual is wrong here. Their method is only correct for '68-9. There are 
3 different types of TVSs used on Type 3s and each is adjusted somewhat 

I'm sending you my writeup on adjusting the TVS.

 I have holding in my hand a Vw part # 311906051 B should I try this?  I do not know if it was tampered or not. I bought in on the Samba a few years ago.  Is it correct for 71 and should I try it?  I kinda don't think so.
