That's because you are missing your rear-most engine. The one under the back seat is just for racing. Everybody knows that. Lucky you posted this.

This is not my engine bay. I stumbled upon this Beetle at a car show recently and looking at this engine really got me thinking. There is a lot to talk about in this bay!

Had my engine overhauled over the winter in my 74 Super. Mechanic did a
really good job. No more oil leaks. It's not EXACTLY what was in the car
when it was new, but it runs a hell of a lot better then it did when I bought it
3 years ago. Tar boards are from Classic VW Bugs (aka Chris Vallone)
I know they aren't what would have been used
in the 70s cars but they look great.

So now she has a more reliable engine, new gas tank and all new fuel lines.
Next might be disc brake conversion or front end rebuild. Not sure which yet.

Thanks Tim!

The K&N filter works fine, it is reusable and they say it increases the air flow... I believe them Smile.
