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?
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, 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.
VW 1600 Dual Port Sand Rail
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.
My motor is alive!
after working on my rail buggy for right at 14 months and slowly building
the engine over the past 2 or so i finally got to crank it. this was the
second time it cranked successfully. timeing needs to be set and the carb
needs to be dialed in but it cranks!

Sand rail crash and rescue at Dumont Dunes 2012
During a dune run this driver couldn't see the witches eye before it was
too late. this was his first time ever driving a sand car, and his first
time out in this car he built himself.
No major damage, just the Tie rods pulled out and bent upper control arms
on the right side. It took a long time to dig and pull this car out
though... it's a heavy beast. Very cool car though.
