Mystery solved ...I think...when I cracked open the case today I found the pin for the main bearing closest to the flywheel had come loose and was wobbly so the bearing was sitting off center...the bearing then began to rub on the case creating a nice set of grooves on one half of the case.  I think this case is toast but I have a spare so no worries.   I will post some pics of the carnage tomorrow.

Yeah, you joke but I bet I can pull the motor and blow the pully off with my impact and have the motor back in before you can doing it your way.  :headbang:


Ah. Yeah i thinking NO. I have done it several times my way.
I wouldn't even have my carbs off your way  before I pulled the pully my way, and that's fact.:cheers2:

Dude I am far from uptight. You on the other hand regularly act like a child.

I can't knock the 1500 SP I'm running in my Bug right now. It is not quite running the way I want it too but it still tackled all the hills out to the beach and back in 4th gear. Not too shabby for a supposedly tired motor.

I hear ya...Im just dissappointed that a piston skirt for my 1641s broke.  Its not a huge loss but I think I may notice it a little on the hills.  At this point though my car has been sitting for nearly a year....time to get it running with something!

I realized I created this post and then never posted it.

Tins and exhaust on


and in the car.....



Anyone want to recommend a good fuel pump brand and/or location for an early superbeetle?  Any tips on set-up?  If I am not mistaken It needs to be about 2.5 lbs of pressure.  I assume it needs to be wired in so it is only powered when the key is on....I have a couple of accessories I have done like this so this shouldn't be a problem.

If you are going with an electric pump get the rotary one from DIP (it looks like a silver tube). Takes one screw to mount it under the fuel tank on the pan. Runs much quieter than the facet style, and will last longer too I have heard (my faucet style lasted about 6 months). Given I don't have a fuel gauge it was nice to get the heads up when the faucet would really start pounding that I needed to switch to the reserve tank. Just my 4 cents.
