I am looking for an engine to replace my tired 36hp.

Wanted to go bigger, and convert to 12v.

Anyone have a running engine? 1600dp or bigger?

How about rebuildable ones?

Also looking for a synchro'd 1st gear swing axle.

Thanks
Duke

You need to find a 67 or 68 beetle box, 61-66 axle tubes, axles and brakes and a bus nose cone & hockey stick. This will give you the perfect gearing (with stock height rear tires) for a 1600 or bigger, and with the bus nose cone will bolt right into your early car.

I have enough to build a 1600sp, or dp from scratch.
