I have 1969 bug that wont keep a charge and it wants to die at the stop light unless you tap the gas what do I do?

(No Charge)First test the battery. If it is OK check the alternator. (Die at stoplight)Start with a good tuneup (plugs, points, rotor, distributor cap). If that doesnt solve it, either replace the carburetor or rebuild the carburetor. It sounds like it is staving for gas at idle which could be a minor carburetor adjustment.
