Looking for the correct timing setting. I have a 1600 AE Dual port engine, the distributor # is VW 113 905 205 K. I have attached a picture. I'm assuming that it is 7.5 BTDC static. Any help would be great.

That looks right to me. What carb are you using? If it is a 34 PICT3 a 205K is not a good match. The vacuum signal is different. 205K works best with a 30PICT1. I believe the dual point distributor is a 205AJ. It is a dual canister distributor. Casey

What carb are you using? I typed dual point in previous post, I meant dual port. I assumed you had a 34 PICT 3 distributor.
