Type 4 engine rebuild thread

Post by 937carrera » 20th February 2019 - 9:33am

I am following a rebuild thread for a VW 412 over on the Samba

The latest update covers cold galvanizing the head studs, cc'ing pistons, measuring con rod journal play and trial build to determine deck height.

This is a top quality build,from a guy with loads of experience, and well worth taking the time to read, as the engineering applies to all of our flat 4 engines.

I'll admit I do struggle adapting back to imperial measurements - and there's an interesting bit where the specs in the nearly all the manuals are wrong, the only one that is right is the Porsche 914 spec book.

Have a read, see what you think :)
