2.0L Build in the works

Post by bajaman73 » Wed Aug 29, 2018 3:30 pm

Hi everyone. Gathering parts for my 2.0L for my 72 Bus. So far what I have gathered.

1.7 Case - CA Code (Euro?)
2.0 Crank - .10 Rods - .20 Mains
2.0 Rods - FAT - w/ oil notch done
Scat C35 Cam w/gear and machined bolts
Oil pump modified by Raby

Any suggestions? Anybody with real world experience with this cam in their Bus?
Thanks for any help.

Parts are starting to roll in.
Crank arrived as well as my piston and cylinders. During shipping a couple of fins chipped off. Head side.. Just half of the bolt circle.. Fustrated.
Ill see if I can figure out how to get a picture up.

I think it is fine but ---- the fins are not support or make that much difference in heat transfer. But I would hate installing it in a new built.

You paid for new. Ask the sender, that should not have happened in shipping. He did not make the cylinder, it was his manufacturer and It was not packed correctly.

Thanks for the response. They were not shipped in original box, and the packing was mediocre at best. They were new but sent out for balancing..
The box that had the crank in it looked pretty beat.. but the crank seems okay along with the other parts that were in there. (Head Studs, galley plugs, fan seal, cam bearings)
I have 1 more box coming from USPS that shows up today(Rods, Oil Pump, Cam) Lets see how this one does.
Also my case is on the way via: UPS
I'll keep you posted.

Thanks Clatter - I usually go there when doing research on a camshaft. Just wondering on real world experience.
Received all my parts that I ordered. Other than the cylinders being broken everything else looks fine. Waiting on replacement cylinders at the moment.
Is there a way to confirm the crank and rods are in fact 2L? Started reading through the 20 something pages on ToS, but am not finding what i'm looking for.
Also been trying to track down the dimensions for case and crank to see what size bearings I need to order. Anybody have this info?
Again, as always, Thanks for the help.

HA! Info is REAL easy to find here..

Quoted from pyle...
The 2L have wittle-bitty 50mm rod journals.
The 1.7/1.8 have 55mm rod journals, like T1 but wider.
The 2L rods are insanely beefy esp compared to the 1.7/8 rods.
