VW Camper 1600 Aircooled Engine - 1st start in 10 months
My 1973 Volkswagen Type 2 campervan, sat unused for over a year and a half
(shame). Now, on a cold May afternoon, I attempt to start her for the first
time in 10 months. Although charged the previous week, the battery doesn't
seem brilliant and I'm concerned the petrol may have gone off. Watch the
video to see how I get on.
Please forgive the bleeping alarm (pun intended).
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.....

150 Hp Type IV high performance engine, 71mm stroke x 104mm bore. Scat C45
cam, polished intakes, 44mm x 38mm SS valves, 9.2:1 CR, dual 44mm Webers. I
built this engine for my brother and while I was gone he shot the video
with my test Exhaust removed. The good
thing is that he the engine ran fine for the 3 years he had it so luckily
he didn't hurt anything.
