hey, if it's going in a bike/trike it's all good, isn't it? heck, we have car/truck/gun stuff here too. it's all fabrication and building! post whatever you feel like, we all love learning something new.

VW engine stuff.

Modified my little engine further. It had been a 2110 with mofoco 050 heads and a 260 at .050 cam. All the "normal" hot rod stuff.
It had gotten old and tired (had been around since the early 80's) and I always wanted to fuel inject it.
Not real sure why I made it bigger. I suppose cuz I am to much of an old motorheads.

Bumped up from an 82mm stroke to 86mm.
And increased bore from 90.5 to 94mm.

Moved the oiling around via the Hoover airplane mods.
All the way. Oil passages. Notched lifters and grooves in rockers.
Plus I added squirters to the rockers.

good grief, that is incredible! where did you pick up the knowledge about doing those mods? probably just years and years of playing around with VW engines i'd bet. regardless, that's some amazing stuff.

With the longer rod and the 86 stroke and B pin pistons I am going with a zero deck height with copper rings for the deck.

That left me spacers under the cyl bases.
