Type 4 conversion

Post by Kenlay » Tue Sep 12, 2006 2:07 pm

I have a Type 4(bus engine) 2.0L with a CV case and I shall try to do a type 1 conversion.

I wonder if it is problem to do the machining of the breather chimney to fit the alternator stand if I choose Type 4 DTM basic kit for conversion?

Where can I find a drawing or the measure of the machining of the breather chimney? :(

Ken, you can probably pick up a good case for $50 in a swap meet, you'll spend more than that on having it machined correctly.

Later, Rick.

Yep.
Working with vanagon cases is horrible for a conversion, not to mention they are the worst cases that we find tolerance wise..

I wonder if the original rotating assembly, the cylinders and pistons and cylinder heads are the same for both the CV and GE cases.

Is it only the beather chimney that differ these cases or ?

Absolutely.
Find another case and transplant the internals.

Done.

I have found another case GE, is this a good case for conversion to type 1 or ?

If I do an installation with the T4 DTM basic kit is this a good kit without vibration noise or?

Give this kit a good temperature distribution for both cylinders/head and oil cooler ?

Can you close the decklid with this installation?

GE cases are fine, thorough inspection is necessary since they come from overworked buses..
