[T3] Wasserboxer


Not Type 3 related but interesting all the same.

In Volksworld Magazine, March 99 (Definately NOT the April issue!!) issue
they carry a feature on a red/white
combo 1967 double cab pick up owned by the owner of a VW tuning/restoration
business (GWD).

The thing about this bus is it's motive power is provided by an ex 2.1 litre
Wasserboxer engine from a late T25 transporter, which has been converted to
air-cooling, increased to 2.4 litres and has the following alterations:-
1. Limbach 82mm Crank
2. Porsche Nikasil 96mm barrels and pistons.
3. Compression set at 8.5:1
4. 228mm Type 4 lightened flywheel
5. Limbach cylinder heads, 39x34mm
6. Schleicher Camshaft.
7. Dual 40IDF Webers, K&N filters.
8. GWD Breather, GWD Porsche fan conversion, GWD Manifolds, GWD exhaust
s2mm s/s tube with 50mm s/s mufflers)

This engine produces 135hp.

Anyone have any reflections on what is required to convert? a previously
water cooled engine into an air-cooled unit?
