  1. I've picked up an engine to do a rebuild on, but on the bottom rhs of the attached photo there is an open f lange with a red gasket. What should be on here? I've not got this hole on my other engine.

    1600 TP probably off a type 3

  4. am I going to have some problems if I want to use this in a camper? and can they be overcome?
    what else can I expect to be different to the standard upright beetle & van engine?

    I do have a bog standard 1300 case & bottom end, so I may still be able to get a good engine made

  10. I can see some blanking plates and some are a conversion to a dipstick tube.
    I'm reading there are some issues with the oil pressure switch & the oil cooler mount, that sounds about all...
     
  11. I thought you'd just had a rebuild off LP?
