Desooting the intake preheating pipe of an aircooled VW

A blocked pre-heating pipe on a VW aircooled engine may be a major reason for stalling engines shortly after start, especially under humid and or cold weather conditions. During the restoration of the engine it is quite often forgotten to decarbonize the pre-heating pipe of the intake pipe. You will certainly have heard or read about methods to 'decoke or desoot' this preheating pipe, whatever it is called. I find it the easiest way to knock the preheating pipe with a hammer so that you 'generate' some trembling of the steel causing soot and rust to come off from the inside of the preheating pipe. To ensure trembling (resonance) of the steel pipe you can better hold it in one hand and hammer it with your other hand . Do not tighten the pipe in a work bench since this will prevent the steel pipe to 'tremble'. Knocking with the hammer may take about half an hour to gain a good result, so don't give up !! Do not knock too hard to avoid damages or dents in the pipe. Mind NOT to hammer too hard on the aluminium casted part either (which holds the intake pipe and the preheating pipe together) to avoid cracking of the aluminium. The video shows how much debris came out of this one pipe. So this way of 'desooting' is worth doing in my opinion, rather than making holes in the pipe which have to be closed by welding afterwards. Once the hammering operation is finished you can respray the entire intake pipe assembly with zinc spray so that is becomes a genuine look. After re-installing the intake pipe on the engine you will notice that the left hand and right hand side of the preheating pipe will have the same temperature after the engine has been running for about 4 to 5 minutes from cold (or even in less time) ! Good luck !!!! Alfred - Belgium

1967 VW Bus Engine Backfiring
I just reinstalled the newly cleaned intake manifold and generator - but I've still got problems. After getting the thing to idle, and testing w/ WD-40, I suspect a vacuum leak in the right end casting. I will pull it off and try to refit it correctly.

VW STROKER BUS ENGINE stroker 78mm x 92mm
WITH 5 QTS OF 30 WT ZINK- ENRICHED BRAD PENN OIL.. AND A ENGLE 110 CAM WITH STRAIGHT CUT GEARS AND SOME 110 OCTANE WITH 4 GRAMS OF LEAD PER GALLON. ITS LITE EM UP TIME... THE NEW BRAZIL FUEL PUMP IS A PIECE OF JUNK. ITS WORTHLESS 3-1/2 POUND MADE IN THE USA ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP IS THE RIGHT WAY TO START UP A NEW ENGINE. GUARANTEED FUEL DELIVERY WITH THE FLOAT BOWL FULL.TEMPORARY CLEAR FUEL LINES TO WATCH FUEL FLOW HELPS .. I LIKE USING RACING FUEL TO START NEW ENGINES BECAUSE OF ALL THE LEAD IN THE GAS.. IT LUBRICATES AND KEEPS THE TEMP COOL ABOUT A 100 DEGREES COOLER. ONE SLIGHT SETBACK THE CARB FUELNEEDLE SEAT WAS LOOSE AND WOULD NOT ALLOW THE BOWL TO FILL UP.. A QUICK FIX WITH THE WRENCH AND PROBLEM SOLVED.. I SET THE TIMING AT ZERO STATIC TO START.IM USING AN EARLY 356 PORSCHE DISTRIBUTOR.FOR A NORMAL ENGINE. MECHANICAL WEIGHTS. WORK WELL WITH A ENGLE 110 CAM..THIS ENGINE HAS THRU- BOLTED CENTER MAINSHAFT, AND AN ADRIAN 5/8 BALL BEARING PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE. AS YOU SEE THE IDLING PRESSURE IS ABOUT 60 PSI. WITH A COLD ENGINE.START UP . IT WILL STAY AT 40 PSI WITH A HOT ENGINE.. NOTICE IN THE VIDEO YOU CAN T HEAR THE TAPPETS.. I NICE FEATURE WITH THE ADRIAN 5/8 BALL BEARING SET UP.. THE TAPPETS ARE BEING FED A TON OF OIL AS IS THE CRANKSHAFT . BUILT TO LAST ANY .STOP AND GO TRAFFIC HAS NO EFFECT ON YOUR ENGINE WITH THIS SET UP. THIS ENGINE IS ALSO RUNNING A STRAIGHT CUT GEAR SET.SINCE ITS A LOW RPM ENGINE I SET THE WASHERS IN THE MIDDLE CAM..I DONT LIKE TO IDLE A NEW ENGINE SLOW ITS BETTER TO HAVE THE RPMS UP A TAD SO THE CRANK CAN SPLASH THE CYLINDER WALLS..WITH OIL .BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE I REMOVED THE PLUGS AND CRANKED IT UNTIL I HAD 60 POUNDS OIL PRESSURE.. THE PISTONS AND BARRELS WERE WASHED WITH SOAPY WATER ON ASSEMBLY. THE PINS GOT LUBED . I RAN THE ENGINE FOR ABOUT 4 TO 5 MINUTES.. WITH A FEW START UPS .. MAN IT SURE LIKES A LOT OF CHOKE TO START... ITS A LONG WAY TO THE SPARK PLUGS... I ALSO USE GEAR REDUCTION STARTERS WORTH EVERY PENNY THE ENGINE MAKES A LOT OF RESISTANCE FOR THE INN ITAL START UP... THEN GETS BETTER AS THINGS BREAK IN.. THE OIL FILTER I USE ALLOWS ME TO REMOVE THE FILTER AND CLEAN IT FOR RE USE.. THIS WAY I CAN SEE ALL THE SMEGMA ITS CATCHING . I THINK IT WAS OVER A 140 DOLLARS BUT HAS LOTS OF NICE FEATURES..LIKE ITS ALL ALLOY AND ACTS AS A COOLER ALSO AND YOU NEVER HAVE TO BUY A FILTER FOR IT. WITH THE CB 1 QUART OIL PAN IT NOW HOLDS 5 QUARTS OF OIL TOTAL ... GREAT FOR A BUS STROKER ENGINE WORKHORSE.GRUNT MACHINE.WITH THE 388 GEAR SET IT WILL BE WORKING ON THE BOTTOM END. I WILL TEST THIS ENGINE AGAINST THE CROSS FIRE INTAKE ON THE Dyno SOON AS ITS BROKE IN A LITTLE..I HAVE MORE INFO ON THE SAMBA ON HOW THE ENGINE CASES WERE PREPARED. THIS ENGINE ALSO HAS A SPECIAL DOG EAR THRUST FACE HARDENED WASHER MACHINED INTO THE CASE FOR HEAVY CLUTCH WORK. ENGINE CASE PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING .EVEN THE CYLINDER BARRELS ARE TRIPLE CUT ON THE CASE WITH VERY TIGHT CLEARANCES.--ABOUT 2 THOUSANDTHS.PRECISION FIT. THIS ENGINE WORKS OUT TO BE 9:1 COMPRESSION RATIO. PLENTY FOR TODAYS CRAP REGULAR GAS.I ALWAYS USE A LITTLE LEADED RACING OIL IN ALL MY AIRCOOLED ENGINES. MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE . BRAND NEW ENGINES GET 100 RACING FUEL FOR THE FIRST GALLON OR TWO. THEN WEENED BACK TO 10% THE LIFE OF THE ENGINE. NORMAL DRIVING YOU CAN USE AS LITTLE AS A COFFEE CUP FULL TO GET BY.PER 10 GALLONS.. AFTER A COUPLE OF HOURS OF RUNNING OUT COMES THE OIL CAUSE ITS LOADED WITH CRAP . ALSO A FULL OIL INSPECTION OF WHATS IN THE OIL FILTER. WITH THE STATE OF THE ART MICRON OIL FILTER ON A FULL FLOW SYSTEM YOU ARE LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF THE GAME.. THIS ENGINE IS NOW A SINGLE RELIEF OIL PRESSURE SYSTEM LIKE THE 356 PORSCHE ENGINE ONLY WITH 100 PERCENT FILTERING OF THE OIL. TOMORROW I START RECORD KEEPING ON ALL THE VALVE CLEARANCES FOR POSSIBLE CAM SHAFT PROBLEMS OR VALVE STRETCH. LEO





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.....

VW, CROSS FIRE,OIL INJECTED,MANIFOLD HEATER, AND OIL COOLER
THIS IS THE FINAL DESIGN AFTER OVER A YEAR OF TESTING. BESIDES A 10% increase in HP, the manifold is now oil injected to eliminate any chance of carb icing at any cold condition and benifits the engine by cooling the oil and is returned to the valve covers where is again mists to cool the Exhaust valve stem and springs at this point its about 100 degrees cooler. They are made in batches of 10 units ..they flow fuel extremely well and will work on any vw upright.including buses and ghias. with clearance to spare.the runners are 1.1/4inch in diameter .. and flow 1900 meters. of air .. more that enough for any engine.made... really big engines flow about 1400m . No special alt or gen brackets are necessary ..this manifold fits perfectly. Deposits are taken by the oldest recieved first They come in silver ceramic coating only the price is 575.00 dollars with a 100 percent refundable 100.00 dollar deposit.
