Well it has the single strap air cleaner and the round top regulator. I believe that both of these were used in '54 and '55. Have you talked to Todd about shipping it?

Lower crank pulley & fuel pump are 1956-later style. The crank pulley should have no rolled lip on the outside edge. The fuel pump should have a domed top, not a removeable Brass fitting as shown.

Generator & fan shroud look correct. The fan housing (1953-55) should NOT have a square dimple behind the aircleaner, and I don't see one on that particular motor.
The generator should be a thin slot generator. In the pics, the generator has the louvered cover so it's not visible.

Carburetor stand should have a rounded edge and not two flat sides.

The "stand" I'm referring to is the little piece of metal that supports the carb from the front. Not the whole manifold. Confused

The 54-55 fuel pump has a wavy top.

Sort of a poor photo:

I think it should have the thin outer upper generator pulley too.

And of course the fuel line from the fuel pump to the carburetor is totally messed up.

i was just wondering is this engine even a 1954 engine or is it a early 55 engine
from the samba vins oval info thread
i got these numbers for decenber of 1954 meaning the last few 1954 engines ended with 945 526 and only 6 total numbers

now the engine in the ad with serial number 1-0921258 wouldn't it be a may of 1955 engine and not a ""1954"" engine
this is just info i collected from the samba http://www.thesamba.com/vw/archives/info/bugchassisdating.php

correct me if Im wrong I just don't want to spend the money if its not right for mt 54 vert thanks guys

Just a little question, The add says that the engine for sale LOOKS like this one. The photos are not of the one for sale. Get some of the one for sale before you buy it, It may be even more incorrect. Just my 2 cents OLDOVAL

The pics that are on Todd's ad is of the '54 engine. The engine that is for sale now is a '55. He's using the '54 pics to sell the '55 engine.
