    Hi guys I did the typical moronic thing when I got my bay for resto - whipped the engine out, took all the carbs off etc and stuck it in the garage (for....ahem 4 years). On the final push to get my bay on the road and need some advice on what to do with the carbs. The engine did work when I...

    Type 4 engine jerky / stalls at low speed I am running a type 4 2ltr engine (ref CJ) on my buggy which has twin carbs (believe Delorto) with everything else believed to be standard though no evidence of a choke, if I drive it like I stole it runs fine. When I decelerate either by braking or...

    My bug lump is knackered. Mate is just doing a 3.0 911 conversion into his 914. So his 914 lump is going spare. I understand that the type 1 motor and the 914 motor are essentially the same.

    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...
