36hp piston and cylinder
swanlakers
This piston shows scoring above the rings but little wear otherwise. The texture from manufacture is still there on the skirts. The cylinder looks OK but the micrometer will tell the tale.

This engine was included in a recent 1960 bug purchase. Many of the parts will go on to be used again. Unfortunately the block has some corrosion damage that will prevent its use.

I think these are not the original mats, that’s a bug mat under the pedals?
Maybe the firewall rubber was replaced, this was definitely stitched to carpet that was glued to the firewall
The right side is shaped for the passenger footrest, which came out in 58 or 59

I am not a Porsche guy, I was going to use this as a stroker in a 36hp block. Now I am going stock. Any way, I think this is a 74mm stroke crank from a 356. Anyone know what it is exactly?
