redvespa Spent a few hours today taking the engine apart #vw #type3 #squareback #variant 1mon
  •   bigevtaylor Have you measured the bores yet? 1mon
  •   redvespa Nope. Don't even know what that is or why I would do it. @bigevtaylor 1mon
  •   bigevtaylor See if anyone has rebuilt the motor before, bored the cylinders out etc. let's you know what you've got to work with. 1mon
  •   redvespa Ah ok. @bigevtaylor just learning as I go and taking it slow- plan is to get the heads off and the cylinders and inspect as I go. Not really planning on cracking the block at this point. Problem was that one of the tappets came loose / push rod is going in seemingly too deep. So will keep going until I find the cause. But it's an excellent little project for learning about engines as i know all about what happens outside the engine. Now to learn about what happens inside. :) 1mon
  •   redvespa @bigevtaylor looked inside the engine. Smashed lifter and cracked valves. Lucky I have a spare engine. ;) 1mon

redvespa Em and I got bored today so just casually thought we would learn how to take an engine out of a car. #vw #volkswagen #type3 #squareback #1500 #winter #nowtofindoutwhatswrong 1mon
  •   ohnickyy OMG 1mon
  •   pigthang Hope it wasn't a dropped valve seat although you technically have a type 1 motor so it won't be as costly had my melt down. 1mon
  •   redvespa Yeh yours looked full on @pigthang but I'm guessing that a dropped valve seat is one of the cheaper options of things that could happen that would cause the tappet to become really loose? 1mon
