First heartbeat since 1979
Yesterday my friend Guller and I visited "VW-arne" who is a guy with many years of experience as a vw mecanic. I bought the NOS 30 hp engine for the Split bug of him about five years ago and we agreed to start it up together when the time was right. So we hauled the floorpan to his house and had the ceremonial ignition and she fired right up - the car has been silent since 1979 when it was disregarded by it owner and left for dead in a farmhouse. I do need a 25 hp distributor - I want my NOS 25 hp cap on to make it look somewhat right.
