I'm in Wisconsin, so someone else may pipe in with a Davis location.

Here are 2 manuals you should own, if you don't already:

Volkswagen Official Service Manual
Type 3 Fastback and Squareback 1968-1973
published by Robert Bentley, Cambridge, Mass, 1974
ISBN 0-8376-0057-X / LPV 997 383 / VSQU
(excellent book, complete and well written)

VW 1500 & 1600 Type 3, 1963 thru 1973, Haynes 084 (US)
by J H Haynes and D H Stead
published by Haynes North America, Inc, 1974, 1987, 1989, 1993
ISBN 0-900550-84-8

The first one covers everything except your carbs and the 6 V 
electrical system. The second one covers the carbs and 6 V system, 
but is not as complete on the rest of the car as the first one. I 
have a copy of the first one available if you don't already own one.

Are your carbs the OE dual Solexs? That's the best choice. Is your 
system still 6 V?
