VW 1600 Aircooled Engine DIY Rebuild (Slideshow)
Some snaps taken during my last rebuild in 2006. Case, crank, pistons, barrels and heads were all good to go again. Camshaft, tappets, oil pump and all bearings were replaced. The tinware and ancilliaries were cleaned, detailed and/or repainted.
Volkswagen Engine Blow
How long can a Volkswagen engine run at top RPM with no oil? This is annual event at the Maritime Volkswagen Owners Club (MVOC) show. This video is from the 1998 show. UPDATE: From comments., I see that some folks don't understand the reason we did this. This is a common event at many Volkswagen shows. The purpose is to show how duriable an air-cooled VW engine is. Try doing the same with another type of engine!? Plus, the VW engine can be repaired quickly and cheaply with hours.
