VW Trikes by Phoghat
I am a VW and motorcycle enthusiast and have just had a LAK amputation. Prior to that I was thinking of building a VW engined trike but now I don't know if that's possible in my condition. I know some VWs (and Porsche) were made with auto/semi-auto tranny, but don't know if they would hold up with...

Restoring a 71 Vert by esowash
Hello new friends- I'm restoring a 1971 Super Vert, and I'm having some engine trouble. Hoping you find citizens will be able to provide some insight. I've set the points and the timing...but when the engine warms, he won't idle. If I manually choke the engine (by closing the butterfly) he'll...

Curiouser and curiouser by John[_28_]

I have a Hazet 36 mm striking wrench for sale. It's used, but the wrench points show no wear. It works great on the rear axle nuts when you don't have air tools available or when they aren't enough. See page 62 of the Hazet...

Father Of The VW Beetle by Bill Berckman
In every VW book I have read, they cite Ferdinand Porsche as the person who designed the VW Beetle. I ran across some information today that disputes that. It says that an engineer by the name of Josep Ganz was the person responsible, but because he was Jewish, he was forced to leave Germany...

Those dowel pins on the flywheel. by Mr. K[_2_]
I was looking at this; and I wondered ; Why are those dowels so short. It would seem like they should be long enough to "fill" the flywheel and the crank . you know maybe another 3 mm in length. Does anyone make longer ones. and are there Oversize ones ? TIA -- Karma, What a concept!
