40 Years Later, Busted VW Bus Engine. Will It Run?

friend of mine bought this 1969 vw bus but did not want the removed engine on the ground. so l grabbed it. lets see what it will take to get it running or why it failed forcing its removal from the bus. check out 5150mxvw video on the bus itself here, www.youtube.com/watch?v=sv6uS...

    just wanted to say thank you for your videos. I find them the most informative and entertaining on you tube. I have never been very mechanical but after watching almost everything you have done I enjoy pulling down small engines and trying to fix them. Thank you.

    Evere heard of liquid wrench ? This engine should have been presoaked in something like that. Save on the old frustration of bolt removal.

    Mustie have you ever heated up around the spark plug with a torch and applied beeswax on the plug? When the metal expands the beeswax will go inside help loosen the two dissimilar metals without pulling the threads. I've used that trick on old motorcycle engines and it really helps. You must let the beeswax soak for awhile periodically hitting it with heat and adding beeswax, it might take a little time but it'll save those heads.

    Heat and WD-40 to get the plugs out! 👍🏻 First WD-40 and time, and if this doesn't work. Then heat up the surrounding area around the plug up and the plug will come out (almost perfect, mostly 😂) PLEASE UDE WD-40 (OH YOU HAVE SOME 😂

    Crack the plugs free and give them another quick spray with air then some weasel piss. Any crap that gets stuck around the plug loosens up and blows out so it doesn't drop down into the cyl.

    I'm pretty sure that this engine was not installed in the van! The 4 edge support behind the exhaust system where the engine was attached to the frame with 4 approx. 10 cm long M8 screws is missing! In addition, it is necessary to dismantle the rear sheet metal in order to be able to pull out the gear stud bolts with the motor! Otherwise you can't get it out of the body!
