when it comes to carbs, what does PICT stand for?

Maybe. I just figured there was some reasoning behind PICT. Carbs are really my weakest point, so I figured I would ask.

I went through every Beetle / VW book in my collection and even Googled Solex and PICT.  Solex is the French company which turned out carbs for all sorts of makes of cars. There was not a word about PICT .  It does not appear on acronym lists either so I guess it was the name of the carburetor they turned out for VW - either that or it really does stand for "Performance is Constantly Threatened".  Another one for the great VW book of mysteries to be added to things such as who thought of using the air pressure in a spare tire to power windshield washers when an electric pump would seem to supply the answer in a much simpler fashion ? !!  Dan (MY72BUG) in Goderich
