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.....
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

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.
