1975 VW Bug rev

1799cc stroker I just completed this weekend. Specs: Bore x stroke - 88mm x 74mm Compression - 8.2:1 (deck height at .055") Approximate power - 100hp/110lb-ft EMPI forged counterweighted stroker crank EMPI forged I-beam rods (VW journal) EMPI 32mm filter-flow pump (Mexibug-style) EMPI dual EPC 40mm carbs (Weber ICT knock-offs, only a bit bigger) EMPI bolt-on aluminum valve covers EMPI straight-cut forged timing gears Mahle forged piston and cylinder set Scat serpentine belt Compu-Fire distributorless ignition Kennedy 1700lb clutch and solid-hub disc OEM German forged 12lb flywheel Bug Pack merged header, stinger, and muffler. Bug Pack flanged heater boxes (they do work well!) Engle W110 cam w/30mm lifters (degreed, of course) JB 1 1/2 quart oil sump VDO gauges (oil pressure, oil temp, cylinder head temp, volts) Case relief-cut for thrust washer (fits between front main bearing and case) Engine case, alternator, alternator stand, alternator backing plate, and distributor base painted Detroit Diesel Green by me. Pulleys, throttle cross shaft and levers polished by me. Muffler hit the #1 primary tube and sat way too low, right out of the box (way to go, Bug Pack...). Had to pie-cut a section of the headpipe to make it sit right and as high as possible. STILL hits every tiniest obstacle... gonna get a baffle for the stinger and ditch that bigass muffler. -Update- I've all but eliminated the off-idle stumble (tweaked the carbs some, but it really wanted more timing advance) and re-wired the engine bay to be more presentable. Also, it's running the open stinger that came with the header kit. Not horribly loud, unless I've got my foot buried!

VW STROKER BUS ENGINE stroker 78mm x 92mm
WITH 5 QTS OF 30 WT ZINK- ENRICHED BRAD PENN OIL.. AND A ENGLE 110 CAM WITH STRAIGHT CUT GEARS AND SOME 110 OCTANE WITH 4 GRAMS OF LEAD PER GALLON. ITS LITE EM UP TIME... THE NEW BRAZIL FUEL PUMP IS A PIECE OF JUNK. ITS WORTHLESS 3-1/2 POUND MADE IN THE USA ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP IS THE RIGHT WAY TO START UP A NEW ENGINE. GUARANTEED FUEL DELIVERY WITH THE FLOAT BOWL FULL.TEMPORARY CLEAR FUEL LINES TO WATCH FUEL FLOW HELPS .. I LIKE USING RACING FUEL TO START NEW ENGINES BECAUSE OF ALL THE LEAD IN THE GAS.. IT LUBRICATES AND KEEPS THE TEMP COOL ABOUT A 100 DEGREES COOLER. ONE SLIGHT SETBACK THE CARB FUELNEEDLE SEAT WAS LOOSE AND WOULD NOT ALLOW THE BOWL TO FILL UP.. A QUICK FIX WITH THE WRENCH AND PROBLEM SOLVED.. I SET THE TIMING AT ZERO STATIC TO START.IM USING AN EARLY 356 PORSCHE DISTRIBUTOR.FOR A NORMAL ENGINE. MECHANICAL WEIGHTS. WORK WELL WITH A ENGLE 110 CAM..THIS ENGINE HAS THRU- BOLTED CENTER MAINSHAFT, AND AN ADRIAN 5/8 BALL BEARING PRESSURE RELIEF VALVE. AS YOU SEE THE IDLING PRESSURE IS ABOUT 60 PSI. WITH A COLD ENGINE.START UP . IT WILL STAY AT 40 PSI WITH A HOT ENGINE.. NOTICE IN THE VIDEO YOU CAN T HEAR THE TAPPETS.. I NICE FEATURE WITH THE ADRIAN 5/8 BALL BEARING SET UP.. THE TAPPETS ARE BEING FED A TON OF OIL AS IS THE CRANKSHAFT . BUILT TO LAST ANY .STOP AND GO TRAFFIC HAS NO EFFECT ON YOUR ENGINE WITH THIS SET UP. THIS ENGINE IS ALSO RUNNING A STRAIGHT CUT GEAR SET.SINCE ITS A LOW RPM ENGINE I SET THE WASHERS IN THE MIDDLE CAM..I DONT LIKE TO IDLE A NEW ENGINE SLOW ITS BETTER TO HAVE THE RPMS UP A TAD SO THE CRANK CAN SPLASH THE CYLINDER WALLS..WITH OIL .BEFORE STARTING THE ENGINE I REMOVED THE PLUGS AND CRANKED IT UNTIL I HAD 60 POUNDS OIL PRESSURE.. THE PISTONS AND BARRELS WERE WASHED WITH SOAPY WATER ON ASSEMBLY. THE PINS GOT LUBED . I RAN THE ENGINE FOR ABOUT 4 TO 5 MINUTES.. WITH A FEW START UPS .. MAN IT SURE LIKES A LOT OF CHOKE TO START... ITS A LONG WAY TO THE SPARK PLUGS... I ALSO USE GEAR REDUCTION STARTERS WORTH EVERY PENNY THE ENGINE MAKES A LOT OF RESISTANCE FOR THE INN ITAL START UP... THEN GETS BETTER AS THINGS BREAK IN.. THE OIL FILTER I USE ALLOWS ME TO REMOVE THE FILTER AND CLEAN IT FOR RE USE.. THIS WAY I CAN SEE ALL THE SMEGMA ITS CATCHING . I THINK IT WAS OVER A 140 DOLLARS BUT HAS LOTS OF NICE FEATURES..LIKE ITS ALL ALLOY AND ACTS AS A COOLER ALSO AND YOU NEVER HAVE TO BUY A FILTER FOR IT. WITH THE CB 1 QUART OIL PAN IT NOW HOLDS 5 QUARTS OF OIL TOTAL ... GREAT FOR A BUS STROKER ENGINE WORKHORSE.GRUNT MACHINE.WITH THE 388 GEAR SET IT WILL BE WORKING ON THE BOTTOM END. I WILL TEST THIS ENGINE AGAINST THE CROSS FIRE INTAKE ON THE Dyno SOON AS ITS BROKE IN A LITTLE..I HAVE MORE INFO ON THE SAMBA ON HOW THE ENGINE CASES WERE PREPARED. THIS ENGINE ALSO HAS A SPECIAL DOG EAR THRUST FACE HARDENED WASHER MACHINED INTO THE CASE FOR HEAVY CLUTCH WORK. ENGINE CASE PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING .EVEN THE CYLINDER BARRELS ARE TRIPLE CUT ON THE CASE WITH VERY TIGHT CLEARANCES.--ABOUT 2 THOUSANDTHS.PRECISION FIT. THIS ENGINE WORKS OUT TO BE 9:1 COMPRESSION RATIO. PLENTY FOR TODAYS CRAP REGULAR GAS.I ALWAYS USE A LITTLE LEADED RACING OIL IN ALL MY AIRCOOLED ENGINES. MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE . BRAND NEW ENGINES GET 100 RACING FUEL FOR THE FIRST GALLON OR TWO. THEN WEENED BACK TO 10% THE LIFE OF THE ENGINE. NORMAL DRIVING YOU CAN USE AS LITTLE AS A COFFEE CUP FULL TO GET BY.PER 10 GALLONS.. AFTER A COUPLE OF HOURS OF RUNNING OUT COMES THE OIL CAUSE ITS LOADED WITH CRAP . ALSO A FULL OIL INSPECTION OF WHATS IN THE OIL FILTER. WITH THE STATE OF THE ART MICRON OIL FILTER ON A FULL FLOW SYSTEM YOU ARE LIGHT YEARS AHEAD OF THE GAME.. THIS ENGINE IS NOW A SINGLE RELIEF OIL PRESSURE SYSTEM LIKE THE 356 PORSCHE ENGINE ONLY WITH 100 PERCENT FILTERING OF THE OIL. TOMORROW I START RECORD KEEPING ON ALL THE VALVE CLEARANCES FOR POSSIBLE CAM SHAFT PROBLEMS OR VALVE STRETCH. LEO





sleeper vw bug
I took a 60 vw bug that was sitting for 25 years, rebuilt a motor for it, and took it to the track. Didnt even wash it! to Prove whats on the outside isnt what counts. Its what we DONT see that does. Motor is all VW with stock block clearenced for stroker crank, stock crank is welded stroker, has 92mm pistons to equal 2180, vw heads ported, and dual IDF webber carbs. mild 125 engle cam. I know its not a super fast car like most other videos on here, but for what it is, a stock bug with skinny 165 metric tires, and a stock vw motor with very old hot rod technology, it does pretty good. The way it is I a ran a 13.41@100mph on the stock tires. I have since pulled the motor and building 2235 with Mofoco 050 Made in USA heads, FK45, 48idf's, Pouter 1:4's

The Original Fast Volkswagen Belt Change.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, DO NOT TRY THIS TECHNIQUE.....PERIOD! I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR COPY CATS AND INJURIES! Dont be fooled by copies. This is my hands, in my shop, with my tool, with my 67 car. I am the original fast belt changing VOLKSWAGNUT. How to change a Volkswagen Generator belt in about 5 seconds. I was shown this trick a few years back, by Reece Kelso. Kelso was the "VW" man around the Gaston County N.C. area in the 70's. Kelso is gone but the memory is still strong. Here is my go at it ENJOY.

1966 Dick Landy supercharged VW Beetle
This is an 1835CC DP with the CB perf. offroad special cam. I purchased the DLI kit complete off a running drag bug for $1500, installed it on my engine and fired it up. I only ran it briefly since it is wicked overdriven, (18-20PSI Boost) and I can only run it on race fuel for $12/gal. Plus at the time I didn't have a way to tune it so I didn't want to mess up the engine. I have no idea what the timing and A/F are. I would estimate the HP at around 200 or so.
