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.....

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

thing is that he the engine ran fine for the 3 years he had it so luckily
he didn't hurt anything.
