My '63 Bus was originally titled using the engine number instead of the chassis number. I know it's a super long shot, but since I have the info, I thought it would be cool to see if I can find the original engine (or at least the case).

Anyone happen to have engine number 0243487 lying around?

Thanks!


Someone will soon.

Surprised

Just a short note on re-stamping. To give you an insight why VW used to re-stamp replacement engines.

In Germany the shops were required to re-stamp the cases before engine codes were introduced, because that was the only way for the inspection guys to tell if the right engine was installed in the car.

These days all you need is the correct engine code on the case.

Any change of engine to a different engine type must be recorded. The engine size, hp and emission standard have influence on the taxes and the insurance premiums you pay.

Be careful buying any motor represented by serial number..the file of engines and VINS is not secure, so if someone has laid there hands On it it’s easy to make an engine to a number spec.

Verify parts, progressive refinements etc.

Well thought I would post this Engine up here. Seems to fall between
April and May of 1959. I took this engine out of a 53 Zwitter I had which was incorrect and has just been sitting under my work bench for several years in case something comes up Cool

I freaking love this thread!!
A man can dream, can he not?!
I’d love to find a 36hp engine around the 420xxx mark, the last couple months of Jan/Feb of 59 before the Bastard took over.
Noticed through the thread that hasn’t been any 400’s, they’re out there, for each and every one of us!

As a unit repair tech in 79- it was almost a given that the numbers on a rebuild new case were stamped into a rebuild- When The place closed the shop foreman gave me the letter stamps and the numbers- but the numbers were just a shorter than VW's originals. Believe this was the case for all stamp sets coming out of Oregon.

SO-- if any one has an engine with numbers just a tad to small- would like some references- thanks Bill.

i am not sure this is such a problem, for several years VW did stamp replacement cases with the old engine number. Is it really better to leave an un-numbered case un-numbered? We are not talking about vin numbers here.

With the same logic (later misrepresentation) you could say that leaving the block un-numbered lets somebody else punch in whatever numbers they feel like punching in...

i totally get the whole "original engine" original paint, original everything idea

Maybe a good compromise would be the original number followed by an X?


I have two 40horse cases with no stampings present.

Hi all, I have a early May of 58 panel van. I would like to see if anyone has a 36hp engine between:
345-671 and 463-618
Actually, any 36 would be good but a period correct motor would be sweet.
James
