Re: '66 Deluxe

The muffler looks pretty normal right? PC230051a.jpg Until you flip it over and see the surgical scars. PC200004.JPG First the baffles have to come out of #1 and 3 ports, this takes an acetylene torch and a screwdriver. PC170139.JPG It's hard to believe the engine can even breathe through these. PC2...

Re: '66 Deluxe

Reseal the CB/JayCee adjustable pushrods. PB140073.jpg PB140079.JPG As soon as I install heads and jugs I always pressure test or do a leakdown to verify the cylinders are tight. This is as tight as it gets, only a few % leakage on all 4. PC030122.JPG Install the Empi 1.5 quart sump. Like most Empi ...

Re: '66 Deluxe

Been taking my time doing this as winter's here, took a couple of trips, worked on the Vette for a couple of weeks so now I'm back at it. I can't let Bill get ahead of me in the engine race. I miked the crank bearings, they measured exactly the same as a new set I have on the shelf. I did change out...

Re: The UNofficial bus (stuff) for sale on CList (& others) II 2017

John Watjen was interested in this bus last week so we went out to look at it, the seller's description is accurate- typical Ohio rust in the door bottoms and etc. Some surface rust in the windshield frame but not rotted bad, if you sandblasted these spots they would pinhole. Frame and important stu...

Re: '66 Deluxe

If you ask a hundred engine builders what they use to seal a case you'll get a hundred answers and none are wrong. It's just a matter of opinion. I've used several including Curil-T which is supposed to be the cat's ass. Even when used sparingly it breaks off and gets "worms" in the oil strainer. I ...

Re: '66 Deluxe

The site's been kind of slow lately so I'll post some pics of what I'm doing. I had Tom Simpson build a 2180 over 10 years ago for my Ghia with a new case and all new parts inside, pretty stout for what it got for carburation. It has a W110 cam and CB 044 big valve heads. It probably only makes 80-9...

Re: Split Bus Project

Ugh. What's your fascination with early Beetles? Put $30K into a car that's eventually worth 10? That deserves to be in the Jay Leno "more money than brains" club.
