1st Q d_c
,why did you buy it if you didn't know anything about it?
,just like any
other carb which was never originally designed or intended
to be used on a VW there just have to be some adjustments made
,pretty much had to do with jetting & preheating the manifold or "hatting it" http://www.chircoestore.com/catalog/smf/index.php?topic=3815.0

more tips & tricks here
You should have no problem running it if it's in decent shape:
Throttle shaft not wobbly in the base-that can be corrected by drilling the base & inserting sleeves if it's not
the shaft itself that's worn http://www.chircoestore.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=4066&osCsid=fpvbt3jkjl414o82bivqeokkv2
,then you'd have to look for a replacement shaft or whole base assembly keeping in mind
that this was also originally a Ford based carb globally,so that leaves you open to search Ford based info for replacement parts on that carb model also
