40 horse (before...recently pulled from running car)
smitty24
This '65 engine, recently pulled from PO's car.
Literally everything that COULD be wrong with VW motors all in one package of fun!! ALL WRONG AND EVERYTHING NEEDING REBUILD AND REPLACED.

Used as one of his backup engines. PO is a local VW shop owner and self proclaimed "mechanic." No idea how he makes money. Told me it was a "great" and "extremely reliable" motor. Fired it up on test stand for me, ran but poorly. Incorrect valve lash (beat up valve tips and destroyed rockers), rusted and seized intake and exhaust bolts/nuts. Missing tins, no flaps or thermostat, too large header and leaking exhaust, stripped threads, BAD generator, new FLAPS universal regulator that wouldn't work, wore out 28 pict, wore out vac advace dizzy and mismatched to carb: gutless and only yielding 10* of full advance! Leaking gas out of carb and gaskets, fuel pump pushing 6-7 psi, broken pump flange, disgusting and neglected oil, oil cooler seals leaking, bent fan, severely clogged heat risers....BY FAR THE WORST MOTOR IVE HAD TO REPAIR!

Gen/Alt Test Stand
telford dorr
I cobbed this together to be able to bench-test generators, alternators, and regulators. It uses an old 1720 RPM motor (1 hp - probably overkill...), an old generator stand, a length of 2x8, and some bolts. Simple...

IRS case corrosion on mating surface common to engine on bottom side as installed.

Rebuild or repurpose? Engine test stand from case is my thought.

Kadron throttle shaft bushings, steel backed Tin/Bronze with PTFE

Kadron throttle shaft bushings, steel backed Tin/Bronze with PTFE
Kendogsbarn
(Kaddie Shack inspired) The stock bushings wear too fast on these carbs. These are PTFE-Lined Tin Bronze with Steel Shell, China version. They can theoretically stand HUNDREDS of times the dynamic load of silicon-bronze. "Shaft wobble" will never get as bad as stock, depending on shaft condition. These all passed the "spray for leak" tests. They do not bind if installed with care. Three bushings per carb.
I use a 3/8" drill press and wooden fixture in a drill vise to bring into plumb.
The SHANK of my 10mm reamer is just proud of 8mm, so standing straight up through BOTH of the old bushings on my workpiece and into the chuck will get the workpiece in the ballpark.
I "carefully" step-drill, then ream ONE SIDE at a time, using the opposite side of the throttle plate as a handy guide for the reamer shank. This is possible because the reamer works well on both ends of the cutter. Drill and then ream flat ONLY as deep as the bushing(s) need to fully seat. This leaves some "cheek" on the inside wall of the throttle plate for added support and sealing. This also prevents the possibility of throttle plate "crash" into the bushings. Polish the shafts with small strips of 400 emery and clean/lube with Tri-Flow. Small wear marks and positional binding indicate a bent or damaged shaft. Targeted use of those small strips of emery can also help this.
The bushings are split, but "pinch closed" due to the interference fit.
They are installed using a #10-32 thru bolt with stacked washers and a wingnut, because I am reluctant to "bash them" into an aluminum throttle plate.
The bushings have a press-fit 10mm O.D., and 8mm I.D..
Alibaba-sourced: Marked "0810". They are reasonably priced. I use them. Alibaba has silicon bronze available, too.
McMa$ter-Carr "INA-HO2" 26679K12 bushings. The gap is notably wider. I stopped using them.
The reamers (10mm and optional 8mm straight) and drill-stops are available on fleabay. The 10mm is about $17 w/ $5.00 ship.
The 8mm (optional) will clear minor burr
