Quick Notes about the “VW Air Cooled Engine”
By Randy Brown
The engine is fairly easy to remove from the car or bus, and not too difficult to disassemble. But without training that’s where it stops for the do-it-yourselfer.
Rebuilding the engine so that it will have some dependability and longevity is tricky indeed.
You must choose the right parts for your application. You must choose the right machine work for the different components. You must be absolutely certain of your assembly methods of the internal components to get the compression ratio just right. You must be certain that you haven’t created a situation that will cause the engine to run in an overheated condition. You must have the correct carburetion and distributor combination. One of the most neglected procedures is the balancing of the engine. My personal friend that does my balancing also balances aircraft engines and is certified. Most shops will not spend the money necessary for this super-critical operations.
But I do !!
Perfection is what I strive for when building an ALL BRAND NEW long-block..
While working for VW, I always attended the VW training schools when they were available, and at that time in the early 70’s we were taught by VW instructors from Germany. Additionally, I taught myself how to use a vertical milling machine and align-boring equipment so that I could machine all my engine components myself which I still do for myself and other area engine builders. I strive to always rebuild an engine to a point of perfection, so consequently I do not sell used engines or rework old worn out engines of any kind..
Qualifications: The Air Force trained me to work on Nuclear Weapons and I served our Country for four years during the Viet Nam Era..
I turned my first wrenches on a VW in 1969 while in the USAF stationed in England. In 1972 I started working for Volkswagen as a line mechanic at North Loop Volkswagen in San Antonio, TX- and in 1977 I opened my own import car repair shop and I was in business for 20 years..
My knowledge and my labor is what I am promoting, and the satisfaction of helping and educating people about their VW’s. People are more than welcome to visit me at my shop and I will spend and hour or so educating and instructing you about any VW subject you care to discuss.
