Re: Posa carburation

The homemade movie that came with the Posa said that it will function well with the VW engines all the way thru 180 hp Lyc. engines. They also said that although rare, the Posa, and all the rest of the slide valve carbs may be subject to carb ice. If anyone is interested in the movie, I will send a copy for the price of duplication and mailing. Really amateur made stuff, but the guy knows his stuff
