1776cc VW engine
A short clip of me running the 1776 I built a few years ago. The engine
and just about everything else in the video was destroyed when the garage
burned down 2 years ago. I managed to salvage the internals from the
motor, and it's now running dual Weber 40 IDFs. It is currently installed
in an orignal Meyers Manx dune buggy.
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.....
