Reviews & Ratings

Laurie Pettitt knows more than most about the mucky green art of rebuilding Volkswagen air-cooled engines. Written with genuine enthusiasm and a little humour, this step-by-step guide is like having a knowledgeable friend standing next to you at the workbench. Relevant to owners of all air-cooled Volkswagens, this manual covers all models of air-cooled engine, all stripped down and specially photographed. The result is detailed, clear and easy-to-understand guidance, with hundreds of colour photographs, all provided by a specialist who is known and respected throughout the VW community. How to remove and strip down an engine before taking a good look inside to work out what s good and what s not. How to measure and examine components, and find that often they are not only serviceable but better than modern reproduction parts. How to prepare and reassemble the engine, reusing original parts wherever possible. With the short engine built, attention turns to ancillaries such as fuel, air and exhaust systems. Guidance on modifications to make the new engine perform better and last longer. Packed throughout with plenty of tips and tricks to make tasks easier.
