1800 cases and cranks are not that hard to find. Check in Classifieds. Also check with Suburban Engine in Boston if you are looking for someone to build it for you.

Need Help - Consider hiring Colin (Amskeptic) when he passes thru your area. He is reasonable and is an expert at VW work. Likeable too.

Need Used Parts and good ones aren't in classifieds here? Ken Madsen at Busco is my hero for used parts. If he can't find it used try Chris at Busted Bus. Avery's Air Cooled and Interstate are good sources too.

Need new 2L heads? Len Hoffman at Hoffman Automotive Machine is the guy to go to.

Suburban engine is/was it in that area. Gary's webpage is gone so you'll have to try to locate a phone number and call. He took over a few years back when Boston Bob passed. Type 4 engines aren't really common in well built exchange motors. A new turnkey engine from someone like Jake is $25K. Lots of $4K swap engines but the builders can be less than stellar.
