Asked by MikeyI Mar 21, 2013 at 07:03 PM about the 1968 Volkswagen Beetle

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi guys. I looked at a project '68 today. It's about 1/2 disassembled. Engine is out, complete, sound running, I am told. Transaxel and steering gear are all still in place. Are there "How To" videos that would help me put it all back together? I reassembled a '56 Corvette many years ago, I have very little work experience on VWs. This is a dry SouthWestern car, minimal rust. Solid pan.

Find a copy of VW's for dummies. It could be on eBay.

these things are cute, but EVIL polluters, you could fill a football field with hondas and they still would not equal the amount of filth this belchy one will put out. just don't drive it so much to save the planet...ok?

A voltswagon with todays lithium cells would be keen with curtis speed control and full semiconductor control...yeah! steppers have so much rpm control that they can read a musical score with varying speeds.
