The Wasserboxer as used in Vanagons is *definitely not* a Type 1 or Type 3 engine... It was developed from the Type 4-based aircooled engines they used in Type 2s up into the early 80s.


Then I suggest you have a look at a wbx and type 4 engine again, Jens. The wbx is clearly a type 1 engine that has been converted for water cooling, and increased displacement. The certain give-away is the location of the fuel pump mount, which is located on top, which is next to the distributor on the wbx and type 1, and to the side, below the distributor on the type 4.

Have a look at the pictures on this page:

What you see here is a wbx engine being modified for air cooling. Notice the details around the mentioned fuel pump mount etc and you will clearly see that this is a type 1 engine, not a type 4.
