Is the. GE code case significant? Just started looking at tearing mine down and it's a GE?
I had worked out its most likely a 1978/79 Vanagon , but hadn't seen the bit about the lifters.
I have the history for Ted and there's no mention of a case change.
I'd say it was a strange thing to do, if you had a 2.0 case, surely you'd rebuild it as a 2.0? Or at least bigger than stock?
American import isn't it?
It's clearly had some case work/cleaning done, as the galleries have been drilled and tapped....
But a case is a case, it's the crank and pistons that makes the litreage... one could assume that it's a 2l.. but you won't know until you pull it down
If you want a nice little running in trip, pop down to me for a brew so I can take a look at it
So it's possible that's it's a knackered wheezy 2.0l.
Could give me something to do over the summer.
i did think the milage seemed massive on an unrebuilt engine
It shows a top end rebuild at 180,000, they must have included the cases!!!! Or have been fibbing to the PO.
If it is a 2.0l it would explain why it felt as fast as Peasoup's, whatever it is, it was definitely old, leaky and wheezy. (much like the owner)
I'll be popping this in this afternoon....
that's teasing. What is the specification on that?
Also, what is all that red Marmitee all over the front of the fanhousing? I hope you've knocked money off for the advertisment
Holy molly !! what a beauty
is that a T25 case?
that'll never run, theres some ruddy bits missing
'th apprentice musta knocked it up one afty
Dang that was a long day... Skipped my tea and got the motor in just as it was going dark!!
Quick shot before it went in...
I think I've just made a mess in my trousers!
2056cc, H beam rods, eurorace II grind cam, and 44 x 38 valves in modified 1700 heads, with a conservative 9.2:1 compression ratio
Builders prerogative Only vinyl stickers, so easily removed if TBR doesn't like them
Yep, T25 case... gets rid of the leaky breather cap
I guess I should get Ted dyno'd when we get home.
Any recommendations for someone within a reasonable distance?
And after how long should it be done?
