VW Sand Rail 1600 Dual Port With Holley Bugspray and Megaphone Exhaust
just idleing, revving up and walking around
I think the carb could use some tuning. I think it is running rich. It seems like it runs a lot smoother once I rev it up a bit...like the plugs are loading up and I clean them out...that could be what all that smoke is too. Any thoughts?
Bad crash at Glamis December 16th 2012
Bad Crash at Glamis December 2012. I'm wearing the Gopro. The rider was
okay, no broken bones, no internal bleeding, he was checked at the
Snippet from my face book page:
The experienced guy rolls through the bowls but the new guy...... well....
he is coming around the first bowl near the top to transition to the second
bowl and he bails on the bowl and starts heading down the bowl. At the
bottom of the bowl is a bush where a 4-5 foot mound of sand has piled up.
This guy target fixates on the mound, goes whiskey throttle, gets to the
bottom of the bowl hits a g-out, and goes from whiskey throttle to pinned
throttle, and hits the mound. This guy jumped about 75 feet and landed on
his face. We fired up and raced over to him and he is laying there not
moving at all. Jump off the quad and get over to him and he is face down
snoring the kind snore you just don't want to hear. I'm calling out his
name and a trickle of blood runs down his face and I am thinking this guy
is going to take 4-5 more breaths and check out but he keeps breathing. We
are calling out his name, his girlfriend is on the phone with 911 crying
and puking, and about 5 minutes have gone by when we see a leg twitch..
then an arm twitch. He started trying to roll over, and we were trying to
keep him down but he was struggling so hard we thought we might injure him
so we let him kind of do his thing. He kept trying to sit up, still snoring
and fighting us. He finally sat up and after awhile stopped snoring and
could answer questions. Nothing was broken that we could see and the blood
I saw came from the helmet hitting his cheek. We were in a really bad spot
for the air lift so my buddy used the Razor to gently take him back to
camp. Medics showed up and this guy was actually ok but he couldn't
remember the last 30 minutes.

VW, DUAL PORT, STROKER 78 X 92, CROSS FIRE INTAKE
THIS IS MY FIRST EXPERMENT WITH COIVERTING AN ALREADY MADE EMPI SINGLE
ZENITH INTAKE SYSTEM INTO A CROSS FIRE INTAKE ... SO FAR I HAVE HAD IT ON
A Dyno AND IT MAKES
10% MORE HORSE POWER FIRST TIME OUT OF THE SHOOT.- AND THAT IS WITH THE
SAME ZENITH CARB WITH NO JET CHANGES. THE FIRST TEST WAS WITH A EMPI TYPE
MANIFOLD AND TUNED IT WOULD MAKE 67 HP @4500 WITH 113 POUNDS OF TORQUE..
THE CROSS FIRE MAKES 75 HP @4500 WITH 119 POUNDS OF TORQUE. WE ALSO KNOW
THAT THERE ARE WELDING GOBBS INSIDE THE MANIFOLD - THE WELDER CLAIMS HE
IS ONLY A BEGINER. SO I WILL LIVE WITH IT FOR A WHILE UNTIL I CAN CUT THE
MANIFOLD BACK OPEN AND GRIND THE SMEGMA BACK TO LOOKING LIKE A PIPE
AGAIN...IT STARTS INSTANTLY AND TONS OF TORQUE FROM THE GIT GO... IT ALSO
REVS UP WAY faster THEN THE EMPI
INTAKE...AS FAST AS YOU CAN PRESS ON THE GO STICK IS AS FAST AS THE REVS
ARE THERE . YOU CAN PLAY BOTH VIDEOS AND HEAR THE DIFFERENCE .ITS CRAZY - I
STILL AM AMAZED .. THE NEXT TEST IS WITH ADRIANS VERSION FROM ALL NEW FROM
SCRATCH AND ANOTHER TEST WITH A WEBER AND DELORTO DOWNDRAFT.

One of the initial start-ups, This was a while ago so I dont remember if we
were working out carb issues yet but Im pretty sure we had to replace the
one shown here with a new one.
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.....
