    weld_13,
    the VW's had 2 basic motors one was smaller than the other, when i was in germany they were all the time looking for the larger of the 2. i blew mine up and one of the guys that race traded me a freshly rebuilt smaller version for my blown up larger one. good deal for me and he was happy to have the larger one to rebuild for his racer. i think it was a 1300CC and a 1600cc but not shore. been too many years.
    thanks for the help
    ......or..........
    hope i helped

    feel free to shoot me an e-mail direct i have time to chat. james@newyorkmetalart.com
