After 12 days of blood, sweat and tears, we completely rebuilt my vw’s engine. Today we finished it up and turned the key. It cranked up perfectly on the very first try! Huge thanks to Jim Hayden for helping me rebuild it.
We figured out after this video that we had forgotten to connect the #1 spark plug.. so this was running on just 3 cylinders! After plugging in the third, it ran even better.
I filmed pretty much the entire rebuild in stop motion with my GoPro. The rebuild video will follow shortly.
