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.....
RADIAL ENGINE MADE OF AIRCOOLED VW-PARTS!
This 2086cc 7-cylinder radial engine is made of aircooled volkswagen parts.
The (mostly modified) used parts are cilinders, pistons, cilinderheads,
pushrods, bearings, valvetrain, oilpump and starter of a 1200 Beetle.
The engine has electronic ignition, fuel pump, and a double Solex 2 x 40mm
The rest of the needed parts are made by myself.

How to Adjust the Valves on an Air-Cooled VW
How to adjust the valves without taking off the distributor cap or
otherwise consider the ignition. Watch the action of the valves, bring the
crank to TDC after you see the intake close. Won't be this easy if you have
a stock-bodied car / don't have easy access to the head and crank pulley at
the same time. This video was uploaded from an Android phone.
