Engine Tin back from powder coating. Been a while since I last posted. Engine is still at the builders and will try and get some updated pics when I can. It's been a slow process but what can you do.....

Did you get your kit from Riechert or elsewhere? I tried to contact them a few times last year and got an offer via email at first but later on they never replied anymore and I got busy with other stuff and left it but I am still thinking about getting a 36hp Riechert kit sometime and I am curious where you got yours.

Hey MDKG, I got mine from Bernd Riechert, My situation was much like yours and I had other priorities after their first reply, but then a year later when I was finally ready to buy it, they seemed to be just as responsive to my emails, except when they had a summer holiday or something... Otherwise they were great at replying within a few days or so... perhaps you might try calling them?

Thanks 56 VDUB! So you contacted them recently right? In my case they replied once and then it got silent but I might give it another try. Please make sure to post pics when you got yours installed and running Cool

Yeah, it was only last month or maybe the month before that I last heard from them.... The kit looks to be great quality and even includes the tunned size venturis!

I'm already detailing my kit to install sometime soon! Watch my thread http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?p=8184604#8184604 for glimpses of it as it slowly gets detailed! Cool

Thanks again 56 VDUB, Definitely will follow your thread. Very curious to see what your engine will look like and how it will perform!

BTW some very nice pictures in the flickr link from your sigh line. Is that your profession?

Well I'm expecting it to LOOK awesome with all my detailing that I'm spending time on...not sure if it will perform as good though haha! Very Happy Laughing

Here's my detail thread: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?p=8191029#8191029

some of the Reichert parts are almost ready to photograph and post soon Very Happy

Thanks! I am actually a photographer... I admit I haven't updated flickr for ages though Confused

Been a while since I've posted here so I thought I'd update. Took the motor to Bill Vallis's place (Vallis Motor Sport) for final assembly. What a wealth of knowledge this man has with vintage VW performance. I will update with pics as they become available.
