Once i had where the manifolds mounted i could then work on fitting and modifying the tinware. Huge ares had to be removed in order for the manifolds to clear and i thought about what i could use to fill in the gaps. VW provided me with the solution so i cut up a late model twin port fan housing and used the end pieces. It again worked really well but was a lot of work.

Modifying the cylinder shrouds so that they fitted without any air gaps, i wanted it to be looking factory and plus you have to factor in how do you fit it all together when its painted. It has to be easy to install .

Onto the center section. I again used a late model part which differed in height so after working out where i needed to be, supercharger belt line etc i added a piece to the middle making sure that everything sat nice. I made a support to the bottom of the pipe as i said before the Judson is a heavy lump.
I wanted to keep things tidy inside the engine bay so i routed the plug wires through the bottom of the fan housing after making a sleeved tunnel through it and reused and modified the original plug wire tube to guide the wires either side.

All the other things that you have to consider when you rebuild a bug is all the small bits that you wouldn't really think of. All these parts that haven't been replaced along the way will need work because they are 60 years old now. Steering box and dynamo rebuilt with fresh bearings and seals etc. I have tried to keep everything original vw instead of buying new. Rechrome and replated parts and rebuilt is better than repo stuff by far.

It is a never ending journey to get all the small parts cleaned up and ready to rock. You seem to have a handle on it... which is amazing. The generator looks better than the one I had restored by a professional shop. Nice work!

Cheers, the dynamo turned out great.

On with the engine build. I`ve never built an engine from scratch, in the past i`ve top end rebuilds and refreshed motors but never built one from new old parts. The fact that i thought i had a64mm crank gave me the confidence to carry on knowing that i didn't have to work out CC and pushrod lengths and deck heights etc, what i had or what i thought i had would just drop in after careful examination and small adjustments etc.
The nos case was still covered in cosmolene and took no amount of cleaning to remove, steam cleaning, detergent, degreasing were the order of the few days and obviously because i had removed all the oil way plugs i could get in with spiral brushes etc. I was amazed of how much dirt was in the oil passages, its essential to do this.
The cam is a WW okrasa copy and i used a set of magnum steel straight cut cam gears, i weighed all the pistons and match weighted them , i brazed on the oil pick up tube for the berg sump, why they would suggest just using a jubilee clip to hold it on i`ll never know. I had a nos set of pushrods so i set the guide plates to suit and generally started with a mock up build. I ground in the barrels to the case using grinding paste along with seating them into the heads too. Match ported the manifolds and cleaned up the outside as well as removing all the casting marks from the inside. All these little jobs go a long way to a nice running engine.

So after bolting up the rebuilt and balanced rods and checking and rechecking everything i bolted up the case and proceeded to fit the B&P. Only then did it dawn on me that the crank was not a 64mm one but a 69.5mm version! Now those that know realize that this changes the whole engine. Things becom a lot more complicated from now on because all of a sudden i`m building a small stroker motor.
The rebuilt cylinder heads were not as they seemed either. When i looked closely i noticed that the valve stem heights were not the same and were miles out. When trying to set up valve geometry properly they all have to be the same obviously. These were sold to me as ready to go and rebuilt by someone who is the best. See also the valve seats, not very well seated.

So the whole game changed after this, modifying a 30horse motor is a completely different experience to modding a late motor. For a start non of the tools you can buy fit or work because everything is basically smaller. I`ll just gloss over the rest but it took a lot of work to build it right, i worked out the deck height and compression ratio and did all my own valve geometry, modified the ratio rockers and made my own solid rocker spacers. I fitted AA two piece lifters which i had to split the case again because i had to readjust the lifter guides. I had to modify the CB thick Alu pushrods because the clearance was tight at the pushrod tube ends. I made an oil pick up tube mount as i wasn't happy with the press fit of the tube in the case..... All this and much more. It went on.

So after a tonne of work it was bolted together and fitted into the car. I then made an oil filter mount and plumbed it all in. When i look back it was very rewarding at the end because there is nothing like running a motor that you`ve built from scratch. It was nerve racking but exciting at the same time.

Ah, the difficult balance between doing the necessary to have a nice driver and going the extra mile with the risk of it being "too nice to be used"..I know it too good !
That being said, I want to thank you for sharing the project (here and on Instagram). I am a big fan of your work, the quality is second to none !

Bests

First of all huge respect for the work you are doing, far beyond what I am capable of but one concern:

Image may have been reduced in size. Click image to view fullscreen.


This does not look good to me, the sanding marks are supposed to be between 40 and 60 degrees and these look parallel. What little I know about cylinder honing tells me that this engine is going to smoke. Let me know if I'm missing something.

Must be those camera angle or something. Iíve honed many cylinders and never had issues with smoke etc so I can confirm that the motor is smoke free. 😁👍

That is what I was hoping, did not seem like a mistake you would make. I just don't see any cross-hatching.

Some random pictures of the build. I rebuilt the king and link assemblies, blasted the beam and installed new bushes which i reamed out to suit, installed the brake reservoir which i modified to dual circuit and fitted my NOS Hirschman red tip antenna. I also do my own zinc plating so was able to replate all the original bolts and fixings.
The BBT front wings fitted great until i realized that the horn grill on the right side had been stamped out in the wrong orientation. They initially said that there wasn't an issue but later admitted that a batch had gone wrong. I was not the best pleased to say the least, no apology or anything. I fixed it but it was a set back that was totally unexpected.

After i bought the car in 2004 i ran it for a while until the original gearbox started making some horrible noises. Fortunately i didn't run it for long and back then it was easier to replace the whole box rather than rebuild it so i fitted a slightly later gearbox which lasted until now. I really wanted the original box rebuilding so i contacted Pete from the CogBox here in the UK and he said he could rebuild it no problem. The bolts holding the crown wheel to the diff had sheared and the bolt heads had ground a small groove in the casing. The damage wasn't so bad and when it returned it looked like new. Great service. I fitted up the axle tubes and new boots with the correct style clips and new bearings etc.

The only jobs that i haven't done myself is the retrimming and gearbox rebuild. The headliner is a Westcoast Classics one and i managed to buy the correct green polka dot seat material from Wagonmanufaktur in germany. A guy called Edward Aldridge did the trim work and did a lovely job. The headliner install is a beautiful job, its perfect tbh, very happy.
The rest of the pics are fitting up the panels and starting up the motor for the first time. After a few oil leak issues it runs beautifully. I`m still running the engine in but i can tell that its going to be a nice little combination, it purrs along the road!
I`m in the process of restoring the original wheels because i`m not that keen on the fuchs, lets face every man and his dog installs porsche fuchs wheels these days, i almost feel a bit left field going back to stock. Got some nice tyres to fit and the skirts will make a reappearance.

Made my own custom air filter manifold using a velocity stack from a 48IDA and later fitted a gauze air filter to the end of it. Also made a battery box for my 6V optima battery. I used the original battery lid and welded a hinge to it, keeps the battery nice and safe. All the tinware fits as it should, no gaps or bits sticking out etc. Fitted up the rechromed genuine bumpers and made up an adapter for the HAZET tool kit so i can fit it to the porsche spare wheel without modifying the toolkit or the wheel.
