Classic VW Engine Rebuild, By Last Chance Auto Restore.com
We began with a dual port 1600 cc engine from a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle.
The engine ran with a miss and was smoking a bit . After performing a
compression test,(both wet and dry) , we determined the crankshaft and
bearings were fine.
We replaced the pistons, pots & rings. We had the valves redone and made
several upgrades along the way.....

half..tons of room for plug removal and replacement. fits in a bus or bug
with clearance for the deck lid.sounds better than duals.. and has crisp
throttle response at any rpm .. no flat spots even with a oo9 dist, comes
to order with your carb base pattern. works well at 40 degrees temps and
above . do people actually drive their bugs and busses at night? easy
