Lost in Bug Land

Post by Guest on Wed Apr 06 2011, 20:39

scratch
I am so lost at this point!!!!!
Is there anyone out there who has had someone else tare down a 1600cc dual port VW engine,
and then find that they must put it all back together themselves without a clue of how it came apart?
I've got the manual but scratch man oh man it does not cover everything!!!

I'm actually using the two I have at the same time looking for any and all clues on how this thing goes back together.
Almost there but have run into a snag when it comes to puting in all the metal shrouds. They just are not very easy to figure out. any body know of any online videos that could help?

Tom Wilson book is great. I've built up an engine, it's not great but not bad as a first attempt. It's got plenty of power but knocks a little when starting cold. Just remember to be meticulous, keep a clean working area and keep checking things over as you go along. It was pretty simple once I read the book. Got another stripped case that is waiting for some attention so plan to build that up at some point too. Give me a shout if you're stuck.
