ok I looked at the motor.

it does work out to bein a 2007cc.

the valves are recessing into the heads . to far for machine work.

the cam is an engle 110

the crank has an issue with the main bearing (rear?) self welding itself on.

the case may not be good where the main bearing (rear?) f*d up and grooved it a lot.

carbs are usable.

exhaust is good.

we are goin to 94mm pistons for a 2200cc.

gonna look into havin the crank machined.

let me know if any of ya think we can salvage the heads.

see pics (not the best, but they are pics)....


need diff pics? let me know.

I wouldn't worry a bit about the heads. If they really are recessed in too much just put new seats in them, But I but your fine. alot of People grind their seats down so the valve sits deep like that. Your case scares the hell outta me though! thats alot of metal to have floading around hopefully its mostly from your bearings and not the case or crank. Make sure if you decide to reuse it, have it thoroughly inspected but the oldest most anal VW guru arizona has to offer. It may turn out fine, but theres alot riding on it if your wrong...

Man, That case is hammered!!!!!!! I would say by looking at the pics its not salvageable. If you need a case, I have one thats ready to go. Machined for 94s, drilled for full flow, been vated and line bore checked. Also welded behind #3. Just call me if you need it.

Can you bring the heads by so I can take a look at them? Its hard to say without actually looking them over.
