1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia Engine Start
First time starting up the 2333 cc engine (91x84mm) that I installed in my
wife's freshly restored 1971 Volkswagen Karmann Ghia convertible. Yes, I
know my coil is installed upside-down. The after-market wire harness was
installed with too little slack to reach a downward-pointing coil. This is

66 Karmann Ghia Starts For First Time In Almost 4 Years
This is (was) my Grandmothers 66 Karmann Ghia. I've had it in my possession
for about two months now. I got under the hood today and did a little work.
I cleaned up the distributor cap/ rotor contacts and filed the points
clean. This is by no means the condition I will leave the ignition in, but
the wife will be excited to know it runs and isn't just keeping the
driveway from floating off into space. This is also running on 4 year old
gasoline! EWWWW! Let's call this particular start up the "proof of concept"
and the successful completion of that allows me the luxury of keeping the
car in the driveway and me in the bed, as opposed to me in the car, the car
at the Park and Ride!
