i just joined the site, the reason why i joined was i just traded a truck for a mid engine sandrail with a 2180
motor with dual webers,it runs on av gas, i know nothing about volkswagon motors can someone help? plz

i would like to tune it up but the questions i have are,
what should the points gap be at?
it has a dregree wheel on it, so how can i find top dead center?
valve lash gaps?
spark plug gap?
maybe there is a website?


thanks
rowdyrail

Welcome to the site.

Point gap .016
Do not trust the damper with the degrees on it. Find actual TDC with a stop and mark the actual TDC on damper. (if you want instructions, ask)
Valve lash .06 with aluminum push rods, zero with steel pushrods; measured when cold.
Spark plugs .024-.028

Hope that helps.
