I dont remember that i have taken the engine out of the van....ever.
i saw that the engine has a lightened flywheel.
and some small thing to improve.
The old header and silencer....well they might need some welding.
we took the engine to Hasse H´s. garage,
so that the broken header studs could be taken care off.
somehow, hasse got the thing fixed and even the header on its place.
now we need a short oililter, around 7 cm tall.
After this im gonna put some new filters to the carbs
and the engine will get some service too.
Have to say that this has been the best vw engine ever.
hopefully it will stand 10 years more - of fast driving.
new sidewinder exhaust from aircooled.fi :-)
the header needs the cooling tin to be
cut a little bit - to fit the j-pipes correctly
28 degrees celcius - made this job a bit harder.
got to inspect if this old setup is re-usable...
one engine - fits all. :-)
