Engine is provisionally sold to Kate off this forum - so time to remove.









Almost out



Woohoo - out





Whilst out - I changed the intake manifold rubber seals both sides, and changed 4 push rod tubes for new ones.
Engine is going to live in a bay type 2 now,









Engine ready for collection,

He's patiently waiting some attention.



New front axle, adjustable, with short shocks, needs a good clean up and painted.

New engine has an unusual shaped fan shroud.

Dry from oil and main case is gold which I hope means it's a goldseal unit.

Decided that the EMPI exhaust wasn't for me.

So removed it to make way for an exhaust that exits through the rear valance.

I had one of those exhausts on my bug before the tuck away you just removed
If you fit that I recomend ear defenders

Been busy with other projects and my bug is still waiting patiently and dry stored in the garage.

Moved him out yesterday to do some work in garage.









Once weather improves - I'll get onto the rear window graft then the Golde sunroof graft.

Back in his home whilst I gather more parts.
