VW 1835 Engine Test Stand Running
Finished the Engine Test Stand and went through the break in procedure for
my new 1835 Engine. Everything went smoothly and the engine is running
great. Got the Transmission out and am ready to set up the Hydraulic Clutch
line. Making good progress.
VW 1600 Aircooled Engine DIY Rebuild (Slideshow)
Some snaps taken during my last rebuild in 2006. Case, crank, pistons,
barrels and heads were all good to go again. Camshaft, tappets, oil pump
and all bearings were replaced. The tinware and ancilliaries were cleaned,
detailed and/or repainted.
Featured in the July 2010 issue of eurotuner magazine, this air-cooled VW
Buggy is the personal project of Derek Jenkins. He was formerly the Chief
US Designer for VW but has since moved to Mazda. His buggy is an awesome
mix of traditional air-cooled style with modern materials and aesthetics.
This is possibly the best buggy we've ever seen, so don't miss the full
feature in eurotuner magazine (on sale 15 June 2010) and at eurotuner.com
