Does anyone know of any video or youtube things to learn about these ear vw engines. I've tried reading some books but after 10 pages it end up a load of meaningless jumbled up funny words. Hands on i learn instantly so was hoping videos could be the way forward before wrecking my buggy just to find out im a dipstick.

What is it that you actually are looking to learn about?

Which aspect of the engine, as I`m sure the Buggers on here will assist

PS - if you want to learn hands on, I`ll be pulling my engine out in a week or two for a major strip down of every nut and bolt due to the demise of the big end -  so if you want to come over to Paignton to get your hands dirty, or just watch, you are more than welcome

Thanks guys. I am on the pin map but will see about getting it on my tag. Unfortunately weddings,busfest and endless diy eats all the time Dave. That would be ideal really,just the job. Years ago before i was a multi millionaire one had to do home mechanics,but simple stuff. I remember on my diesel t25 the bloke in place i bought the cam belt was takingthe pee saying one way to do it was to start the engine and split the old belt ,stop the engine,take half off ,slide new belt on half then cut the rest of old belt off,slide new one fully on. Job done if your brave enough! Thought about it,worked a treat,just cut a little,turn moter ,cut some more and so on. He had egg on his face,could'nt beleive i did it. Thing is i want to learn about the engine cause the more i read the more i don't know and if it goes wrong i don't understand anything people are on about when trying to help. Like dave dream with his heavy duty paperclip thing he sorted at pier pressure,what was that?
The more you know,the more you know you don't know

I have just stumbled over this guy doing a Porsche 914 rebuild - virtually identical to a Type2 25 / Type 4 lump and not far of a basic Beetle engine

Grab a cuppa and take a look, its quite informative

A lot of work and money spent on that but then disappointing on the power output :D
