  1. Aircooled Mechanical Tech
    Hi, I have a 72 bay with dual Solex PDSIT 34 2/3 carbs on a type 4 1700 engine, they have both recently leaked petrol into the cylinder heads but a couple of weeks apart from each other. I have refurbished them both with new needle valves and gaskets and all seemed ok for a while until this...

    Could anyone recommend a good Port Polish kit, as there are so many I get lost. This is for polishing the cylinder head and intake.

    One of my heads is knackered, picked one up off eBay and that's worse, so what have people got lurking in the corner of their garage? As long as it isn't cracked not bothered on condition. Thanks

    My 1.6 td T25 has recently over heated and had to change cylinder head, the timing is right but the engine when turning over sounds as if head gasket has gone or an exhaust type sound, as if backfiring, and it won't start, has anyone got any idea what the problem is please?

    alright i'm very close to finishing up doing my first engine overhaul but i dont remember how to attach my single port intake manifold to the cylinder head; i tried putting the manifold in and there was about a cm gap, then, about a week later, i realised that there was this little bugger of...

    I couldn't understand why my pressure guage wouldn't screw into the spark plug hole till it dawned on me it was turning in the thread!:eek: Admittedly, the thread on the guage is a bit worn. I'm able to screw the spark in tight but it worries me the spark thread might give way while driving. To...

    Hi, I've just bought a brand new mexican 1600 TP head for the van. I'm not sure its been machined correctly as one valves sits a fair bit higher than the other ones. 3 of the 4 all have a machined spotface but the fourth one sits proud as opposed to the other one I've measured the drop...

    I've been trying to sort the exhaust on my Type 4 engine. Someone had put a stainless bolt in place of one of the studs into the cylinder head. When I've taken it out, the stainless has galled in the aluminium and dragged the thread out of the head. Anyone know what to do with this? I reckoned...
