1974 Standard Sedan
« on: September 14, 2013, 11:29:37 PM »
Had this bug for almost two years now, it was all original when I got it but have been fixing it up ever since.



Still has its original 1600 engine soon to be updated to an 1835.



Ill start another thread on the new engine build as it will the first engine I put together myself.

Stay tuned!

Here is the kit you need to get that old 1600 going.

It has the better points with heavy spring and the bosch condensor.  This place is in Azusa on the way back from your ladies house. Let me know when you get it and I will help you put it on so we can get the car over here for the swap.

Finally finished the 1835 built. Looks and runs fast compared to the worn out 1600cc that was on the bug. I installed the hideaway muffler in the mean time but still thinking on putting back my phat boy on it. Also put my Solex carbs that I had and honestly it gave more power that what I expected out of then. :D

But still going to miss that 1600 it always took me to point A to point B till I finally just gave up on it and just wanted more power. Still I'm debating what to build out of that 1600 block :-\

Will post pics soon

here are some pics of the install

Finishing up before the install









Old, tired and leaky 1585 ready to make room for some power.







TW 1835 in its new home. Dont worry Mike, we took out the rags before start up!





Ready for some neighbor hood terrorizing!




The only issue was the brand new Petronix SVDA distributor that was giving 30 degrees mechanical advance and non responsive vacuum can with the low vacuum signal from the KS modified carbs. 


I wish I would have got a pic of Anthonys smiling cheeks in his side view mirror as he tore around the corner on his way home!!


Now some front lowered disks to keep the ride safe with all this new power.
