I have a vw buggy that was made from a old VW beetle but i wanted to know how would i find out the size of the engin? Like is there numbers somewhere on the block that say if it is a 1600cc or what. Thanks:thumbs:
*paging dr. vwhobo.... dr. vwhobo, you are needed in the "classic cars" section please..... thank you*
*Secretary speaking, Dr. VWHobo is busy right now. He will be with you in a moment.*
The number you're looking for is stamped on the case directly below to generator stand flange. Tell me what it is and I'll tell you what you have.
The number stamped on the case is AE 493113
Dr. Hobo has to erm, "operate" on some noobs, so I'll fill in for him :laughing:....That was the 1600cc engine :thumbs:
Your case would have originally been installed in a '71 US spec Beetle. That means that it was originally a 1600cc (1585) dual port, dual oil pressure relief, doghouse oil cooler style engine. Keep in mind, that's what it was from the factory. The only way to determine for sure what it is now is to open it up and take some measurements.
What was the bore, stroke, advertised SAE horsepower, oil capacity and valve lash?
Thanks a bunch guys, ya will probly be hearing from me a bunch here (i am a beginner beetlest) :mrgreen:
By valve lash do you mean play or along those lines?
I don't even know what "play of along those lines" means. How am I to respond? Besides that, it's time for you to be put on the spot. You have claimed on these forums to me a mechanic, and when called on that, a mechanics apprentice. Valve lash is one of the most basic of all measurements pertaining to an engine and you don't know what it is? Shocking.
I'll be happy to answer your question when it's worded so the average adult can understand it.
Hehe yes I did work as an apprentice at Coreys Ohio Auto, you know the one on Clearwater Largo Road :wink2:, but what I meant was is there another term for "lashing" like "freeplaying" (as the people in the garage called it sometimes)
Uhhh...Yes lol...He just asked for engine size...That's not really fair, you're VWhobo...Ask me any porn star's boob size or favourite position, and I'll be able to tell you :laughing: JP
Hell, I'm just giving you a chance to improve your searching skills.
I have never in over 30 years working in the business heard the term "freeplaying". I'm stumped.
Alright, I've got nothing better to do, I'll PM you the answers tonight lol :smoke:
Well, that won't get your post count up, will it?
Yeah, but this will :laughing:
Seriously though, it's because I probably got something wrong lol.
Hmm, now I'm confused :ohcrap:
...mostly b/c "free play" is considered a noun and not a verb...
Actually "Free Play" is when a married couple, decide between the two of
them, that its ok to.................ooops wrong forum
