1968 – 1979 VW 1600 Transporter Engine – General Reassembly

The Volkswagen engine is more complex in assembly than a conventional engine with a single cylinder block. It is therefore essential to get everything right first time and don’t rush it. More than likely you will not have assembled engine like this before so the order of assembly on other types cannot be relied upon for experience.

Before starting work clear the bench and arrange all the components nearby. The assembly surface must be particularly clean and it is a good idea to cover the working surface with sheets of strong paper. Have all the necessary gaskets and seals available together with clean oil in a can or convenient dispenser pack.
