I should also ask - ever since I’ve owned it the turn signals don’t ‘return.’  I have to do that manually.  Is that related to the high beam issue I mentioned below?  My Bentley is at the cottage but I wonder if both these repairs would happen at the same time?

Would that suggest a problem with the lever or the relay?The vehicle was sitting out for many years and I suspect the moisture has caused corrosion/connection issues.  Lots to sort out there.I did manage to find 165/15 inch tires at the local farm supply store.  Apparently they use them for air seeders.

The '69s are one of my favorite years. Is the this car FI? The '69 FI is the earliest version of the FI, making it the simpliest and easiest to keep going.So the first of many questions:  does this car have high beams?  Electrics seem generally corroded and will need lots of attention.Yes, it has high beams. Switching is done by pulling back on the TS switch lever and by a relay under the dash.-- *******************************Jim Adney, jadney at vwtype3.orgMadison, Wisconsin, USA*******************************
