VW had a lot of issues with cylinder heads th ...

I do want to find that guy who updates the guts of the radio to modern though while keeping the original look.

Even that has little meaning for me. I simply seldom turn on the radio any more. I l ...

Engine serial number is from model year 1965. Cooling tin like that was used through model year 1962. (actually a few months into 1963 but the last few months of those had a different fan shroud, thi ...

Well, that is a late 1200 (40HP) engine and unless you want that kind of engine, it is not really that desirable.

It if often stated in service manuals to install the oil pump-to-case gasket "dry" but I don't know why, I'm usually a fan of Permetex Aviation (which is not an RTV sealant, which I only lik ...

Yeah, I would try to clean off the entire area that shows leakage and run the engine briefly, just enough to spawn new leakage then try to zero-in on the pinpoint source of said leakage.

Hell, I used a 1200 (40HP) oil bath on my 1600DP Baja Bug for many years, then changed to rather similar 1300 version.
