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.....
boring 94mm holes in vw case
On the Bridgeport mill, done in two stages for a step up, one for the
piston and one for the cylinder. Many people bore the hole without a step,
but Ray Vallero likes to leave more material there for strength integrity.
